  • Start talking to everyone you are currently connected with about their advice about your job search, without directly asking them if they can get you a job-they may come back at you with specific people to get in touch with. Geography based research Do Google searches on yourself to find out exactly what people are finding about you Online job search Research your desired field

  • Your name and picture should be same on your facebook/twitter/linkedin/blog/ and name for any news that could be found about you for clubs/sports so you are easily recognizable. Interact with everyone online like your boss/grandmother would see every conversation-if it doesn’t seem appropriate for both, don’t say it. A major problem managers are seeing with young professionals is that their emails aren’t professional. Even if it is from your phone always keep in a professional format
  • You can have people see your interests, books, pages, clubs, jobs, without being your friend-but keep your pictures/wall private. No poking on facebook, or spaming a person’s wall right when the friend request is accepted. Use a personal message for facebook if you want to talk about job information/set up a meeting if you don’t have their email.
  • Interact with people at your level-and above you. Make it so people can easily see what you are into, and what topics you are familiar with by what types of stuff you tweet about. Use # to find jobs and free events going on. Going to free events like this one will help you gain confidence in meeting people in a business setting, and increase your potential to network with people to help land a job.
  • Link in with everyone from your internship even if it was in the past. When you check in don’t always ask about a job-ask to get coffee or talk on the phone sometimes. When you do ask about job opportunities at the company or anyone else they may be able to put you in touch with. It looks great on your resume to have multiple internships and something going on at all times.You don’t have to put on your linkedin profile or your resume how many hours you are doing, so even if you are doing 10 a week-it’s a good thing.
  • Exaggerating your experience/interests won’t be beneficial if you get caught in the interview-or once you land the job. People realize that you have just graduated so be enthusiastic about learning
