How to use Principal's job search tools to find your next career step

Searching by keyword is a great way to refine your search results to job postings that fit your experience and interests.

  • Enter a term such as “accounting”.
  • If you’re entering more than one search term, separate the words with a space, tab, or commas.
  • If entering a phrase, use double quotes, such as “bachelors degree required”.
  • If using an acronym, we recommend spelling it out instead (for example, use “certified public accountant” instead of “CPA”).
  • An Intern is presumed to be a person still in college.
  • An Experienced Professional is anyone for whom neither “Intern” nor “Recent College Graduate” fits.
  • If no choice is made in this category, the results will include job postings applicable to all 3 career categories.
