Getting Started in the Job Search

  • Connect with your network. When family members, classmates, or faculty members ask how you're doing or what your plans are for employment, let them know you're looking and ask if they know of any organizations hiring in your areas of interest.
  • Peruse the job search boards. This can be a great place to learn about different companies that hire regularly in your field. You can also branch out and look at lists of best employers in your area or lists of employers that support causes you're passionate about.
  • Narrow down your search to a few key companies. Sign up for their newsletters, follow them on social media, engage in their events, and try and make connections with current employees and recruiters.

Working Your Network

Did you know networking is the #1 way to find a job? That's right. Leveraging your own personal and professional connections and expanding your network to build new relationships is the best way to learn about different industries and job opportunities that may be a great fit for you. Expand our lists below to learn about different aspects of networking and how to make the connections that will lead to opportunities in your future.
