Pursue

​The moment has arrived.  You’re ready to begin the strategic job search or graduate school search process.  We recommend that you review your resume with a CSO staff member in the fall prior to beginning the search.  Remember, only about 20% of available positions are advertised; 80% are in the “hidden” job market.  So, how do you find these jobs?  Meet with a counselor to begin strategizing your approach using such methods as networking, On-Campus Recruiting, job fairs, online job boards, researching organizations and sending them your professional documents, etc.  We look forward to working with you on putting together an individualized strategy for you based upon your skills, interests, and geographic preferences.

 Action Steps:

· Research employers and industries that match your career interests and geographic preferences.

· Get helpful Career Advice on such topics as professional correspondence, graduate school searching, social media (LinkedIn), interviewing networking, evaluating job offers, salary negotiation and more! 

· Utilize online job sites to aid you in your job search.

· Take advantage of JobGrove and its many features including job postings, on-campus interviews, career events on and off-campus, announcements from the CSO, and more!

· Review our Senior Status Sheet to provide you practical steps at this point in your career development.
