Find a Job or Internship in NH

The job search is a complex process, even if you know where you want to live and what you want to do. The average 20 year old will change jobs about 10 times in the next 15 years, so the process may be familiar to many. However, technology and the economy are constantly impacting the process. The best way to search for many jobs is to tap your network of family, friends, colleagues and contacts. There are a myriad of web sites that can help as well – for searching jobs, internships, leadership programs, and resources on how best to prepare and present yourself during a search.
