Although the economy is bad, companies are still hiring and many want to make those decisions before the end of this year. In a tight economy, the Class of 2009 can expect some heavy competition in the job market. This holiday season is not the time to slack off on the job search.
– Network with family and friends you will see over the upcoming holidays. Share your career goals and plans if you are graduating December or next spring and do not be shy about asking for job leads.
– Get your business professional or business casual attire ready for on campus recruiting events.
