Graduating Soon

If you’re a student who will be graduating soon (in the next few months) and you haven’t started your job search, the time to get started is now! Students sometimes think the best strategy is to wait until after graduation to start looking for a job when they’re no longer distracted by projects, papers, and final exams, but that’s not true. Many companies begin hiring students months in advance of the traditional Spring, Summer and Fall graduation dates. The longer you wait to begin your job search, the more difficult it can be to find a position. To help you jump start your job search and begin your career, we’ve defined the FIVE necessary STEPS with detailed information and resources in the sections below.

  1. Familiarize yourself with positions that interest you.
  2. Fine tune your resume and cover letter.
  3. Develop your elevator pitch and practice interviewing
  4. Start a network of people you can go to for advice and information about potential jobs.
  5. Apply for a minimum of 1 job per week from now until you get hired.
