Are you getting ready to graduate from college or considering a career change? Do you need a little help in getting started?
If you’re a college senior or a recent graduate who is still seeking employment, don’t panic! Surveys report that hiring is up from last year, with many employers plan on hiring more employees than in the past.
Start Your Job Search Now:
If you’re a college senior or recent graduate, it’s a good time to be job searching. Do start your job search early. Don’t wait until the semester is almost over. Employers are in the process of hiring now, and you don’t want to miss out on good opportunities by waiting.
Be Flexible and Focused:
Broaden the number of fields you are considering and apply for plenty of positions but research fields thoroughly so you can present a compelling rationale for your interest to employers. (more…)

Targeted Job Search – Who’s Hiring in Technology Vol 5

Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs

Back to basics with one of my more popular topics – targeted job search. Specifically, job search leads for specific industries. And the most popular of my popular posts is of course jobs in technology. So at first glance you might wonder why anyone would have to tell a technologist how or where to look for jobs on the Internet. But, you may be good at technology but that does not necessarily mean you know where to look for a job. And, like everything else in life, technology jobs come in all sizes and shapes. There are jobs at actual technology companies or tech jobs at non-tech companies. Today’s post focuses on the “not in the top ten tech companies” because sometimes size or popularity does not matter.

Some of the Companies you Know and Love:

  • Google -“Let’s work together” is the tag line for Google’s careers page. And, they have a pretty neat careers site (as you would expect). There are all of the stories about the difficult job interview process, but people do get hired. Top left hand side of the page has links to Joining Google and Life at Google (along with office locations). Center page is the job search function (key word, locations and categories). Browse by locations or visit their social media channels.

Five Career Tips for College Freshman

If you are a college freshman, time is on your side. How, you may ask? Well for one, hopefully the job market will be better in four years. And for another, you have 4 years to do all of the things you really need to do to set yourself apart from your classmates and the millions of other people that are competing for jobs. I know some college grads that are working in liquor stores or as cashiers in clothing stores. I don’t think this is where you want to work when you graduate (not that there is anything wrong with that). You need to position yourself now to be in the best bargaining position 3 and 4 years from now. Now is your chance to get ahead of the game rather than wishing you had been more diligent. So where to start? Take a read.

  • Internships: There are all different types of internships, the important thing is to ensure you participate as often as possible. There are summer internships and internships where you participate part time while you are in school (like c0-operative programs). Obviously the best internships go the quickest, but if you do your homework now (no pun intended), you can get a head start. If you don’t already know, internships give you practical experience before you get out into the working world. This experience is invaluable. Additionally, many graduating college students get their best leads (and sometimes jobs) from previous internships. And last, but not least, the connections you will make can make a huge difference in your career (read below). ==>> Students: 6 Best Ways to Get a Summer Internship
