Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.” – Napoleon Hill

Okay, so what is today’s quote all about? Simply put, don’t be discouraged in your job hunt. Not every lead ends in a job offer, in fact, the vast majority don’t pan out. It’s kind of like Lotto, if you have a ticket in the game and no one has won yet you can still dream about how you will spend the money when you win. One of the keys to staying motivated is to try to always have a “ticket in the game”. In other words, as long as some potential opportunity is pending, you can still win Lotto. So how do you do that (easier said than done)? Try to have as many irons in the fire as possible and the rest will follow.

College Grad / Entry Level Job Search Sites:

  • True Careers – A search engine with the tag line “Where millions of degreed professionals find jobs with the companies that value them.”, you have the option of New User or Candidate login from the top of the page. Directly below are links for Search Jobs, Post Resume, Industry News and Career Resources. Jobs by location (state) are listed directly below this. On the right hand side of the page is a quick search (with an advanced search link in the same box) and jobs by category directly below. There were over 22,134 entry level job opportunities when I checked the site.
  • Careerjet Entry Level Jobs – You need to be creative in your job search and try to leverage as many sites as possible to get your leads. Careerjet.com is a well known job search engine. Using a targeted search for entry level jobs returned over 92,000 job opportunities when I checked the site. The link at the start of this paragraph is the targeted search link. You can further refine your search by using the filters on the left hand side of the screen.

College Grad Job Resources:

  • Internshipprogams.com – Okay, a somewhat self-explanatory site name, this is a great resource for finding an internship. The main page is jam packed with information. There are tabs at the top for Internships or Candidate, below which is a search box. Directly below are a number of filters for search: by employer, field, location and date. The top 10 internships are listed on the right hand side of the page. Mid-page are recently added internships and finally, top rated companies to the right of this. There were over 950 internship opportunities when I checked the site.
  • Fifty Standard Interview Questions – This great list of interview questions, from CollegeGrad.com, has just about everything you can think of. While it is doubtful you will be all of these questions in a single interview, there is a fairly good chance that you will hear this list over a series of interviews. There is important advice at the end of this list, not the least of which is PRACTICE!

Company Career Sites for College – Check out these links:

  • Texas Instruments – This is the Student and New College Grad link for Texas Instruments. There is a brief overview, with links on the left hand side of the page for Student Programs, New College Grads, Campus Visit Schedules and more.
  • Amazon University Recruiting – This is Amazon’s Student / Recent Grad career page. There is a brief overview, followed by tabs for Technical, MBA and Undergraduate Business. The left hand side of the page has a number of related links for University Recruiting. These include additional detail/links for the tabs that were on the top of the page. There were 33 entry level job opportunities when I checked the site.

Good luck in your search.
