What the job search is like….after college.

So you just graduated from college…

Congratulations!

Now its time to find a job.

You feel confident…even though you hear the job market is rough.

(Hey, U.S. Labor Markets indicate an increase in employment.)

So, you hunker down and start searching.

But, you quickly learn entry level loosely translates to 1-3 years of experience.

And, although a Bachelor’s degree is required, a Master’s degree is what’s really preferred.

But! You have internships and part-time jobs to boast…and that questionable summer spent as a “Sandwich Artist”.

After weeding out all the “Kid Kamp Instructors” and the “Pool Guards,” you sit down to write your resume.

Finally, you finish your resume….but, now you have to write your cover letter and explain why you want to work there.

You finish, and finally hit submit on your application.

So you wait…

And you wait…

And you wait.

But, its been like, forever, and you haven’t heard anything back.

You send out more resumes…

More cover letters.

You do all you can think!

You start to get a little testy…

Maybe a little sad.

You can’t stand the thought of one more rejection.

When friends tell you about their new job, this is how you react.

And you seem a little on edge when friends and family ask you how you’re doing.

You even start to lash out a bit (like that time your mom told you dinner was ready).

(…)

You wait some more…but still nothing.

You feel like you are beginning to lose all hope…

and you don’t know what to do anymore.

Then, you remember. Ahh, yes…the Wasserman Center.

You see a little glimmer of hope.

They have job postings.

They have counselors to help you improve your resumes and cover letters.

They have seminars to help build your professionals skills and to help you ace that interview.

They have a network of professionals willing to help you.

They have the full social media works – Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, WasserTube, and more – to keep you constantly informed.

There is even an Alumni Listserv just for you!

Most importantly, we are here to help you succeed.

So, even if it gets tough out there.

And you feel like giving up.

You have the Wasserman Center.

And, somehow, we know its going to be alright.
