Job Search Tips for Students
If you are a student, your school career center is an excellent place to start looking for work. As a resource provided to students, a career center is intended to help you find jobs that relate to specific fields of study. You can consult with a career counselor for advice on CV building or sign up for on-campus interviews. Recruiters often come to schools and universities looking for future employees. Many campuses hold job fairs and career events year-round; it's a great way to get your foot in the door to an otherwise out-of-reach company.
Alumni are also valuable resources for landing a job. Seek advice from those who have graduated with the same degree as you will and find out where it has taken them since. Your school may have an exclusive job board for its alumni or perhaps serve as a feeder to some companies. You can ask your school's alumni association about networking opportunities.
