interview? Read these tips on how to make your job search more effective and how to be

100% ready for your next job/internship interview.

• Start with networking. Network. Network. Network. Your network is your own

personal resource to finding jobs. So use it!!

        o Start with your in-person network – family, friends, parents of friends,

           professors, and other working professionals in your life. You might be

          surprised how enthusiastic people will be to talk to you about their careers

          and where the conversations might take you.

       o Get established and connected on LinkedIn. Check out our guide to

open-minded – about the people you network with, the jobs and careers you

consider, etc.

your job search the better chances you will have of landing the job.

• Don’t stop trying. These things take time, so be patient. Have faith in yourself,

and know that just like anything else, you get what you put into it.
