Updating your Profile – Many of the fields in your profile have been automatically populated. However, on your Academic Profile, you need to make a selection for the Application Type and Work Authorization.
For Applicant Type, select “Experiential Education” since you will likely start by seeking a co-op or internship. You will need to change this to “Entry Level” when you begin seeking post-graduation employment.
For Work Authorization, select the condition that applies to your situation. U.S. citizens, permanent residents and others authorized to work in the US should choose “Authorized to Work in the U.S. on a Full-Time Basis.”
