Congratulations on earning your degree and making it through college! But your work isn't over – finding a job as a recent grad can be a challenge, regardless of how well you did in school or what institution you attended.

Here are some general tips to keep in mind when beginning your job search:

  • Take the search seriously – after all, this is your life now!
  • Take advantage of your social and professional network
  • Do your research – know the company and role before applying or interviewing (make sure it is worth your time and that you are qualified)
  • Be open-minded – think broadly about the opportunities out there and explore a variety of industries and roles
