Find a Professional Organizaion – Many professional associations have employment or career sections on their website.
Try an internet search for the terms “association” or “organization” along with the name of the field (i.e. nursing association)
Don’t forget local/regional associations. There are often state associations in many fields. Add the state name to the search.
Jobs – Once you find an association’s website, look for a jobs or employment section. Many associations have job postings. Don’t see one? Look for a “search this site” link and search for the words “jobs” or “employment.”
Membership / Networking – Most professional associations offer a discount membership for students. Don’t forget to look for association events, which can be great opportunities for networking.
