Three steps to improve your online job search success

Best Resumes for College Students and New GradsJob seeking in today’s world can be overwhelming for those new to the hunt, especially college students or recent graduates.

  • “Like” appropriate Facebook pages.
  • Join a professional association relevant to your field.
  • Tweet about your profession.
  • Read blogs about your field, and share your opinion.
