Don't wait until after college graduation to look for a job!
Take advantage of your college's career center.
Attend job fairs on campus.
Participate in on-campus interviews set up by local companies looking for staff.
Before going to an interview, research the company as thoroughly as possible so you can speak intelligently about the company's business and its goals and how your skills and experience can help advance the company's agenda.
Use all the job-hunting strategies available to you. Don't limit yourself to one or two methods of job hunting.
Remember that your resume is your ambassador. A messy, unprofessional resume or one with typos in it will give a bad impression to your potential employer.
Take the time and effort to prepare a professional-looking resume that succinctly highlights your strengths and experiences and will make a good impression on those who read it.
Once you've landed the interview, be sure to follow up afterwards with a brief, neatly written note expressing your interest in the job and demonstrating your understanding of what the company is looking for in the ideal candidate.
Once you have the job, give it your best efforts, even if it's not your ideal job. Your work ethic and work habits will follow you around from one job to the next. Make sure the news is all good.
