Internships and Career Opportunities

All students are encouraged to discuss internship and career opportunities with their academic advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize the JHU Life Design Lab. The Life Design Lab provides assistance in resume preparation, interviewing skills, job and internship search preparation, and other skills.

The department also informally maintains a page on LinkedIn where students and alumni from the department can connect – students are strongly encouraged to join the Johns Hopkins Civil Engineering group on LinkedIn. The page allows students to determine which alumni are in the city of their interest and develop and follow up on leads.

In the early spring the department holds a Career Fair to provide detailed information from alumni on internships and career opportunities and provide networking opportunities with high quality area companies interested in our students. All students are strongly encouraged to attend. In addition the Maryland Section of ASCE also provides networking opportunities at their monthly meetings and twice-a-year career nights for students. The department will help offset costs of attending ASCE meetings for any student interested in participating.
