Student Guide to Landing a Job

Students Guide to landing a job

As a recent graduate, or student preparing to graduate, you may be facing a tough job market, but that doesn’t mean you don’t bring value to the table. The challenge is in conveying that value to prospective employers. How do you present yourself in order to better your chances of getting the job?

Throughout the process of identifying opportunities, applying for jobs, and submitting applications, continue to ask yourself: What are employers looking for? It is your responsibility to show employers how you match their needs and what your contributions will look like once hired. It is important to be honest during the application and interview process; never misrepresent yourself with exaggerated responsibilities and accomplishments. However, you don’t want to disclose your life’s story. If the hiring manager wants to know more, they’ll ask. Apply for all jobs you are qualified for and some you might not be; the worst they can tell you is no.

This guide contains suggestions for what you can do to be better prepared for your job hunt, and it is designed to take some of the uncertainty out of pursuing your future. We walk you through internships, writing your resume and the interview process. Please note that every experience will be different, and some potential employers have their own expectations for your resumes and applications.
