In the meantime here are three things to help you stay ahead of your peers.
BUILD A WELL-ROUNDED RESUME
Hiring managers evaluate entry-level candidates on a number of factors, including academic performance, extracurricular activities, internship or work experience, technology skills and leadership experience. Now is the time to build depth in those areas.
Stay in touch with managers and co-workers from internships and part-time jobs, past professors, classmates who have graduated and are entering the workforce, and so on. Also, start looking into your college’s alumni network and don’t be hesitant to reach out to select alumni for career advice.
CLEAN UP YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE
Prospective employers will look up candidates online, and you don’t want an unprofessional online presence to prevent you from getting an interview. Identify which social media platforms can be made private, and start deleting posts or photos that would be considered unprofessional.
