    Job Search Tips For Students

     
    Technology has changed the job search process; more students are using the internet social media to seek employment than ever before. Despite the changes, traditional job seeking methods such as networking and attending job fairs still hold merit. Here are a few methods that can be utilized in order to find employment.

     

    Many students are utilizing websites such as Indeed, Monster and even Craigslist can be used to seek employment. Listings are updated daily and can be sorted by category and location site. It's a good idea to review job listings and apply multiple times daily as new notices are posted.

     

    The social networking site LinkedIn can also be a great resource for job seekers. The site allows users to set up a profile with information such as previous job history and skills allowing prospective employers to view your details. The site can also be used to network and connect with professionals in your field.

     

    Your university can be a great resource for finding a job. Most have a career center where you can look for job postings. Some colleges organize job fair events where future graduates can meet with potential employers. Find out in advance when the fair will be held and polish your resume and job interview skills.

     

    Last but not least is word of mouth. Quite a few people get their jobs through social networks and references from friends or professors. If you've excelled in a class you can try asking the professor for a letter of recommendation or referral. Let all your classmates and family know that you are actively searching for employment; you never know who may give you the tip leading to a job.
