Those who completed their university course are now trying to find a job related to their qualification. There are many things they have to consider while applying for job.
Even if it is a difficult task, but do not be discouraged. It is surprising for freshers while they face questions from recruiting managers.
The “soft skills” that multitasking, initiatie qualities, and leadership abilities are important just like work experience while trying to get a good job for the first time. If you are a founding member of chocolate club or related things, just mention it on your CV and explain it in details. Also mention all your activities in campus which can attract the attention of employer in the resume to increase the chance of winning in the interview.
In addition, social organizations such as fraternities or volunteer groups, sororities or professional associations demonstrate initiative and the ability of a candidate to be part of a team. “Students can not think of a work detail at Gap or working as a server is relevant, but it is,” said Pam Webster, manager of corporate recruiting at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. “It shows that someone can balance time and goals.”
If your CV is particularly tight, it’s time to get some experience. “It’s never too late to start building the resume,” said Webster Contact local businesses and ask about opportunities for part-time internship where appropriate offer to work for getting the experience which is invaluable. Or try to get summer internship after completing graduation. Most companies hire the summer interns for full time posts.
Seniors graduating this year has an advantage: a healthy labor market. Unemployment rate in the United States is 4.5%, which is almost 20% below the average of long-term. If the job market is weak or strong, acing the key to tapping this job search resources as much as possible. Psychologically, most of the soon-to-be-graduates is the toughest part.

Many sponsor conferences and workshops are good place to know more about vacvancies in the field. They are also the ideal place to establish contacts and to collect visiting cards of the company or employer.
It is good to collect the visiting card of the employer after interview. They are useful when trying to contact the hiring managers. Word to the wise: Do human resources, if possible.

Always follow up the results of interview by making phone call.
If you do not know who is hiring ministry source, call the company and explain that you need name and address of the company to send a business letter.
