    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. LinkedIn is a great way to begin networking, online, before you request a face-to-face meeting with a cup of coffee and your business card.

    As always, the advisors within the Career Center are more than happy to assist you with job search techniques, mock interviews, salary negotiations and of course, networking. Learn more through the various resources on our website http://www.american.edu/careercenter or by scheduling an appointment with your advisor.

    She was in a quandary; should she acknowledge that she knew the spouse, and how, or let this ice-breaking opportunity go?
