Missed the Spring Job Fair? Or just looking for some advice on the job search?

Here’s what employers had to say..

  • Don’t be afraid to try something new.  Find what you are interested in, even if you may not have experience in it.
  • Volunteer or work somewhere related to your field.  Don’t wait until you get out of school.
  • Test drive an organization or business.  Do an internship in what you are passionate about and enjoy!
  • Start early.  Do research on companies and ask questions!
  • Explore many possibilities, weigh your options, don’t be too intimidated by all the job qualifications.
  • Enter the job market with an open mind. Be persistent.
  • Don’t rely too heavily on your resume.  Sell yourself!
  • Be yourself, do your best, be honest and show interest.
  • Focus on what you want.  Have a vision of where you want to be.
