Job-Search Basics

In today's continuously changing and competitive job market, no single job-search strategy can guarantee success. The most effective method for finding a job will also be influenced by the career field you wish to enter. Some employers find that on-campus recruiting is a good way to hire talent well in advance of when the candidate will report to work, while others hire to fill specific positions "just-in-time" or as openings occur.

The effectiveness of your search will be influenced by how much time you invest and how many different strategies and resources you use. A search for a full-time job takes an average of two to six months of organized effort. Speak with an advisor in Career Services to develop a job-search plan that will work for you.
