“Your Graduation Action Plan”
Too many students wait until the last semester of their senior year to start their job search. They are putting themselves at a disadvantage in our current frail job market.
Before or during their junior year students should create a professional online presence. They should begin by making contacts and working to build a resume with work experience. These steps will increase their chances of gaining employment upon graduation. Starting early provides the opportunity to get a clear idea of the kind of work they want to do and the work environment where they want to use their skills, interests, and education.
