STUDENTS | EMPLOYERS | FACULTY/STAFF
Your job search is a process, a journey that can take shape any number of ways. It may take some of you very little time to land an opportunity while others it may take much longer. Regardless of the amount of time it takes to land a job, the steps are often very similar; preparing your employment documents, utilizing online search tools, maximizing your network, preparing for the interview, etc.
One key piece to not forget is balance. Stay focused, yet balanced as you work through your job search. Find time to do the things that you enjoy while using targeted energy for open positions and networking. Be flexible and remember that it only takes one employer to see your value.
