    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.
