A student or grad eager to enter the job market must understand the uphill battle they face–and how to succeed.

There are several key actions to take which will ensure a better chance of being hired now, or after graduation.

Three at the top of the list are…

1) Obtain a mentor-It’s easier than ever now to find quality mentors, simply go to our home page. There you may be paired with mentors–free. The mentors, (professionals in their field), offer a great deal; advice, encouragement, contacts and much more. Often times, mentors are literally lifesavers, providing guidance and serving as positive role models to students and grads without family support. If you don’t have a mentor, you’re at a disadvantage. (See other posts regarding mentors).
