1. Participate in
On-Campus Recruiting. The
website CareerBuilder proclaims, “If the chance arises to
score a job interview on campus, jump at it. Run, don’t
walk, and make whatever arrangements it takes.” On-campus
recruiting is a sure-fire way to find career opportunities.
Employees have open positions they are looking to fill, and
they want to fill them here at Grove City College. Visit
JobGrove to find out the employers coming to campus this
2. Participate in job fairs. Career Fairs
are a great way to network and to get exposure to a large
number of organizations at one time. Remember that career
fair recruiters may see hundreds of students in a day. You
need to prepare a 30-second to one-minute "commercial" to sell your
skills and abilities so that after the fair is over, the
recruiter remembers you. Also, to stand out to an
employer, it's important to follow-up after the event. Be sure to attend the annual
Career Fair in the fall, as well as the "How to Work a
Career Fair" presentation before the event to learn tips on
how to present yourself well to recruiters.

3. Respond to job advertisements. Job
advertisements can be found on professional association
websites, online job boards (i.e., Indeed.com), in the
careers or employment section of an organization's website,
on LinkedIn, etc. NACE suggests to select the best
opportunities and to pursue those. Do not apply for
everything. Carefully review and research the position and
the organization, and submit a targeted cover letter and
resume promptly. Check out the
Resources section to view a list of sites that post
4. Post your resume online. There are
thousands of sites where you can post your resume on
including MonsterCollege.com, Indeed.com, and CareerBuilder.
Create plain-text and PDF versions of your resume, and be sure to
include only those items that you do not mind the world
seeing. Also be sure to re-post your resume at least once a
month since recruiters have a tendency to search only the
most recent resume additions.
