Even with internships and networking experience, some students approaching the end of their college careers are nervous about entering the job market and unclear about what they want to do, while others are chomping at the bit and ready to get started. Either way, students are entering a more competitive job market, and while there are jobs to be found, students should not wait until after graduation to begin their search for the right employment. As older workers retire, businesses will be looking for new employees. Kitty McGrath, Director of Career Services at Arizona State University, said talented, skilled people will be able to find work, particularly in healthcare and other professions that offer services for elderly people and those careers the retirees will be leaving. However, said McGrath, students should begin their job search up to a year before their graduation. She recommends researching different job sectors and specific companies in those sectors. It is beneficial to read business publications and watch stock prices for businesses at which you think you may be interested in working. Learning all you can about the profession you want to pursue is also just good sense. You can see what jobs are projected to have openings and what the salaries are.
