Job Search Tips


These tips have been taken from Getting from College to Career by Lindsey Pollak.

Stop Being a Student and Start Being a Professional
The professional world requires people with professional skills and habits. Recent graduates must build personal brands, or images, both online and in person that demonstrate a great fit for a professional environment. They should use professional-sounding voice-mail messages and email addresses. Signature lines in emails should always include contact information. When writing an email, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind:  avoid acronyms and emoticons: always fill out the subject line; use proper capitalization and punctuation; proofread everything before sending.

Graduates should be very careful about personal photos or information on the Internet, as employers often perform searches when considering candidates. Graduates should tighten security settings on social media profiles, remove any questionable content, and be very careful with the content of status updates. Additionally, it is easy for a young professional to set up a Google alert on his or her name to be notified whenever he or she is mentioned online. Conversely, establishing a positive online presence can have an excellent effect. Graduates should build strong LinkedIn profiles and provide the links on business cards and email signatures. Finally, they should make an effort to stay informed and educated on their desired industries by reading everything they can about those industries.
