Career and Employment Services (CES) provides employers the opportunity to post full-time, part-time, internship, temporary, and summer positions as a service to Puget Sound students and employers. Some of the opportunities are submitted by employers while others have been found by a CES staff member through web searching.
CES does not formally evaluate or screen opportunities listed in LoggerJobs and/or InternshipLink. Students are encouraged to appropriately investigate each opportunity.
Because there are risk factors and other important individual points of consideration, students are urged to perform due diligence when applying for or accepting any off-campus employment.
