For New Graduates

Aaah, yes. So how does it feel to be finally over with four years of your life spent in college? If you think that the relief is overwhelming, just wait till you get your first job. And I know you just can't wait.

So let me fast-track you and give you the general tip: the basic concepts to getting hired are visibility and presentation. Letting a recruiter FIND you so you can answer the question, "Why should we HIRE you?"

There are many ways to start out looking for that opportunity to ANSWER that question to a recruiter. Here are some helpful hints, tips and keep-in-minds that make up the basics of Job-hunting:

 

START OUT AT HOME BASE
Sometimes the best place to begin looking for a job is at your own school. Many universities have a Placement Office that act as employment agencies to its fresh grads, offering free placement services to its students on behalf of employers. Find out what specific services they offer, and how you can avail of those services.

HAVE A TALK WITH A COUNSELOR
Yes, you might need help. Career counselors can tell you a lot about different job tracks, how to identify your skills, or even which field you fit best, if you plan to specialize within an industry. Some career centers even offer tests that can help you in these matters.

RACK UP A GOOD RESUME
Remember, recruiters will always get a load of your resume before they get to check you out; make it sell you well. JobsCity.net's candidate resources offers the hottest tips on how to make a killer resume.

GET REACQUAINTED WITH THE INTERNET
Many recruiters find it easier and more effective to just headhunt on the Web. Don't get left behind; post your resume online. Research on companies and check out their sites to see if they're hiring, and find out how to get hired. Better yet, you can save time by just checking out a jobsite; JobsCity.net offers Online Resume Posting and Job-search services to all job-hunters at no charge, not to mention useful tips and resources to help jumpstart your career search.

BRUSH UP
Get a haircut. Pick a good business suit. Keep in mind that its not enough to be a pro, it's also important that you LOOK like one.
