We know that by now our graduates are primed for employment, we have been cultivating relationships with area industry, and now we want to help you take the steps to successfully complete this task by putting the most professional light possible onto every step of your job search. We recommend following the modules in order, we have taken care to sequence them. And though this information may not be new to everyone, we are hopeful you will find it helpful. It is surprising how little some of our experienced grads understand about the way social media accounts can impact hiring decisions; we will cover this issue and make suggestions.
