Careers4Engineers 

Clark School students have access to one convenient 24-hour online portal for accessing relevant engineering employment opportunities, from your first internship to your first full-time job after graduation. Through Careers4Engineers (C4E), you can upload your resume, research companies, apply to jobs, and sign-up for on-campus interviews, or track where your resume has been sent.  Please note that you will need to use a browser other than MS Edge/Explorer to access the features on Careers4Engineers.

Employers interested in posting jobs for UMD Engineers should click here.

Before you can access Careers4Engineers (C4E), you must first have your resume critiqued by the Engineering Career Services Office. 

No appointment is necessary for a resume critique. Walk-in hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
 We will activate your account at that time. 

We strongly recommend that you first attend both the Resume Writing, and Find an Internship/Co-op (or Job Search Tips for International Students) workshops

If you cannot attend a workshop, be sure to review the information on our website relating to: 

Note:  New freshmen, transfer and graduate engineering students may request Careers4Engineers activation after the first day of their first semester enrolled in classes.

Before you can apply to job postings in C4E, you must answer some required questions under each tab in My Account and then upload your resume. Be sure to log in periodically to update your contact information, GPA, class standing, etc.  See our Careers4Engineers handout for details.

You will use Careers4Engineers to:

  • upload your resume and other job application materials
  • research employers
  • search and apply for job postings
  • register for employer-led resume clinics and mock interviews
  • request and schedule on-campus interviews

If you encounter a problem when trying to view jobs in Careers4Engineers, it's likely stemming from using an internet browser with the uBlock or uBlock Origins browser extensions.  uBlock prevents scripts in CSM from running that are required to correctly display the page.  If the students are using uBlock, we recommend you either disable it while navigating Careers4Engineers, or try using a different browser that doesn't have uBlock enabled.   

  • By using Careers4Engineers, you are giving Engineering Career Services consent to release your resume and registration data to employers. 
  • The information you provide in My Account (GPA, citizenship status, major, degree, class standing, etc.) MUST be current and accurate to the best of your knowledge. If you are dishonest in your personal or academic information, your C4E account will be blocked, and we reserve the right to report you to the University of Maryland's Office of Student Conduct for a possible violation of the Code of Student Conduct and/or the Code of Academic Integrity.
  • See our Student Policies page for additional guidelines related to using Careers4Engineers, missing campus interviews, and job offer acceptance.

External Job Boards (non-UMD)

In addition to UMD's Careers4Engineers and Careers4Terps databases, expand your search by looking at some of these websites that can help you find internships, co-ops, or full-time positions. Try using GoinGlobal to search for region-specific or international opportunities (see our GoinGlobal handout).  Some sites have actual job listings while others offer general information to help you conduct a more effective job search.   

Please note that our Campus Jobs page provides tips and links for finding part-time hourly work on campus. You should refrain from simply visiting offices to ask for a job.

The Clark School Office of International & Leadership Programs website includes a search for credit-bearing study abroad opportunities that include internships, research or volunteer components.

If you plan to participate in an internship, research or volunteer program abroad that is not administered or sponsored by the University of Maryland, please review the Health and Safety Information from the Office of International Affairs.

GoinGlobal

GoinGlobal (you must be logged in to Careers4Engineers or Careers4Terps to gain access) is a comprehensive guide to finding an internship or job at home or abroad. In addition to being an external job board, GoinGlobal offers country and city guides that provide detailed information about what you need to know about working in that city or country, including pertinent cultural information, COVID-19 information, resume and cover letter information, and LGBTQ+ information. You can use GoinGlobal whether you are searching for an internship or job here in Washington, D.C., or whether you want to go global.  See our GoinGlobal handout for more tips.
 
Though anyone can use GoinGlobal, ECS highly recommends it for:
  • international students who want to seek job and internship opportunities in the United States and their home countries.
  • students planning to move to an unfamiliar city in the United States.
  • any student seeking a virtual internship or job due to COVID-19. 
  • students enrolled in the Global Engineering Leadership minor or any foreign language program.
  • students that are seeking employers that recruit individuals with H1B Visas. 
  • graduate students and experienced professionals.
European citizens should pay special attention to the Europass feature of GoinGlobal. The Europass is a European Union initiative that increases the transparency of qualification and mobility of citizens in Europe. Information pertaining to the Europass can be found with any European country and Global City Career Guide under the “Getting the Job” tab.  
 
International students seeking resources on H1B employment should pay special attention to H1B Plus, GoinGlobal’s job board specifically for H1B employers. H1B Plus (Job Board for GoinGlobal's custom-designed H-1B Plus database) provides U.S. Department of Labor records for more than two million companies that have applied for H-1B visas from 2009 to-date. You can search for records by industry, occupation, job title, company name, job location, fiscal year, or wage. Information is updated quarterly as new Department of Labor visa application records are released.

Costs and Funding

In the U.S., technical internships and co-op positions in industry are often paid, but outside the U.S., engineering students generally are not paid to work as interns. If you are not a citizen of your intended host country, you will also need to consider the cost and feasibility of obtaining a work permit. Program providers that help students find internships abroad usually charge significant fees for internship placement, assistance with housing and visa applications, and on-site assistance. It is worth applying for scholarships and fellowships. Start looking at opportunities 1-2 years before you want to pursue the study or research opportunity.

National Scholarships Office at UMD provides information and advising on prestigious scholarships and fellowships for research or graduate study in the U.S. or abroad.
Bright Futures Scholarship is sponsored by the University Career Center to provide funding for unpaid internships with non-profit organizations or government agency in the U.S. and abroad.
Work, Intern, Volunteer and Research Abroad: Funding Resources for Students is a comprehensive list of scholarships and awards for students seeking experiential learning programs abroad, compiled by NAFSA: Association of International Educators.

American Councils Business, Technology, and Innovation Scholarship is available to U.S. students in STEM fields looking to intern in Russia on an American Councils program.
