Job search blues got you down? The Career Center can help with that!

The job search can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be.

It seems like everyone is looking for an entry level candidate with years of experience, but what recent graduate has years of experience?

Well, the Career Center can help you look like the best candidate, even without those years of experience under your belt. They can help you land that internship that will get you the experience you need!

Internships know you don’t have the experience to do the job without guidance, that’s why they’re internships! So a good way to open the door for your first job out of college is to start with internships. Check out my blog post about internships for more information.

Another fantastic way to get that first job in the field you’re studying is to network! LinkedIn is a great networking site that allows you to connect with recruiters and apply to jobs. The Career Center can help you build a great profile for your LinkedIn account, just make an appointment with a Career Adviser. If you’ve got a profile you’re happy with but don’t know how to use LinkedIn, there’s an appointment type for that too!

Did you know that 70% of jobs are never posted? The way to find them is to network! Talk to the people you know, get connected through job fairs and other events the Career Center hosts, and utilize social media to your advantage.

The Career Center has resources for you to take advantage of, check out the Career Center website for more resources and services.
