Job Search Guide

To qualify for good jobs, consider alternative career paths, focus on high-quality technical education, and pursue summer internships to gain hands-on experience.

Career Selection

Choose your career based on research into your personality and what type of work you might enjoy doing. Figure out in advance how you will specialize. Ask yourself what you can do to set yourself apart from other students when it comes time to get a job, or even think about starting your own money-making enterprise. Competition for jobs in popular fields is intense, leading to many-fold numbers of applicants for the same few available positions, with jobs only going to the top 25% of graduates. Don't be a statistic; plan ahead for your job search.

Job Search
  job title, keywords or company
  city, state or zip

Stick with the trusted job websites like Indeed, Monster, GlassDoor, and SimplyHired. Be wary online, as some job sites promote out-dated or fraudulent job offerings, or charge a fee in advance for services that may not have any value. Job placement firms receive their fees from employers who are listing positions.

Writing a Resume

By looking at sample resume layouts, you can avoid many of the mistakes new graduates make in over-preparing their resume. While experience is thin starting out, your resume can emphasize academic and community achievements, and serve to formally introduce yourself as a job candidate.

• Past and Current Employers
• Work Experience
• Military Service
• Internships
• Computer Skills
• Technical Experience

• College or university, major, and degree
• Courses and GPA
• Job Training Courses
• Standardized Test Scores
• Licensing and Certification
• Study abroad
• Extracurriculars
• Volunteer Experience
• Foreign Languages

Financial Jobs

There are several credentials that finance professionals must possess to begin working. If you are planning to break into finance as a broker, you'll need a Series 7 license, as well as a Series 63 license. These will allow you to sell stocks, bonds, and other securities in those states that your firm is registered in. For those that wish to work as equity traders, this field requires a Series 55 license. Exams are difficult and will require preparation. Analysts are required to pass the Series 16 supervisory analyst exam, which permits distribution of analytical reports. Further, analysts may take the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.

Computer Programmers

Software developers start out with a bachelor’s degree in computer science or software engineering, although a degree in math is also acceptable. Computer science degree programs tend to cover a broad range of topics, including computer programming, data structures, artificial intelligence (AI), Ruby on Rails, computer graphics, visual object-oriented programming, and algorithm design. Moreover, most programmers specialize in multiple programming languages, such as php, ASP, C++, Python, JAVA, and SWIFT.

The median annual wage for computer programmers was $90,530 in May 2015. Employment of software developers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than average. Software developers also need skills related to the industry in which they work. Developers working in a bank, for example, should have knowledge of finance so that they can understand a bank's computing needs. In fact, many students gain experience in software development by completing an internship at a software company while in college.
