Explore the Building Block!

We all know that finding an internship or a job can be stressful, and in this economy, it can be downright frustrating.  Luckily, SU has provided a phenomenal resource for users to hook up with potential employers by providing access to the building block within Blackboard. 

If you are looking for a career opportunity, and haven't explored the building block, you could be missing out in a big way!

How do you find the Internships building block?

  • From the "My Bb" home page
  • Go to the Community tab
  • Click "Internships"
  • Sign up, and you're ready to begin!
Here you will have access to 300,000 + internships and jobs from just over 40,000 different employers nationwide!
Can you afford to not take advantage of yet another phenomenal feature offered within Blackboard? Now Supports Attachments

In the past, you could not attach files to your workorders, but those days are done!  Now you can feel free to submit attachments to your workorders.

What advantage does this provide for you as a user needing tech help?
One of the biggest problems with helping users is that the tech providing the assistance cannot always see what the user is seeing.  Now, feel free to take and attach screenshots of what you are seeing so that you can help the tech resolve your issue quickly!

Simple steps to take quality screenshots:


Alt+Print Screen -> Paste into Paint and then save the file to desktop.


Command+Shift+ 3.  The image file will save to your desktop.
