Job Search

Conducting a job search during your senior year takes a great deal of time, energy, and organization. The Career Center can assist you with every aspect of the process, including:

Develop an action plan made up of a series of small steps. Break down your job search into small tasks that seem doable and not overwhelming. The job search is a cumulative process; fifteen minutes every day beginning in September will get you further than 35 hours over a weekend in May.

Things to Consider

Budget your money wisely and prepare for expenses. Long-distance phone calls, airline tickets, an interview suit, resume paper, postage - all these expenses add up and can be an unpleasant surprise. So, think ahead and plan your budget accordingly.
