Job Search Assistance and Strategies
Your job search activities should begin no later than your junior year. In fact, much can be done during your first two years of college if you know the type of employment you will be seeking.
Use every resource available, including job fairs and career days, internet job postings, networking, the ASU Career Development library, on-campus recruiting and visits with Career Development staff members.
Another excellent resource for developing a job search strategy is the Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook. The handbook offers job search tips and information about the job market in each state.
