Evaluating Your Job Search

You’ve basked in the glow of your graduation with family and friends.  Had a two week vacation with your nine of your closest college buddies. Next, you spent part of the summer working in retail or for a local restaurant.  Now, you’re faced with the reality of finding a full-time job within an industry or with an employer where you feel you can make a difference.

Regardless of the status of the economy, many job seekers will proclaim that finding full-time employment requires a huge investment of their time.  Whether you started your search weeks ago or it’s written on your calendar as a “to do” item, be sure to evaluate if you’re spending your time wisely.  Mike O’Brien provides an insightful article on developing a strategy for yourself and why networking and researching will yield better results.
