A Tough Market: Job Hunting for Recent Grads

As a recent college graduate and new member of the information technology community, one of the most difficult tasks I’ve faced so far is – not surprisingly – securing employment. It’s a tough job market for everyone right now, and with many libraries losing funding and having to find more ways to save some money, positions and services are being cut across the board.

A former classmate of mine (@ray1759, if you’re a Twitter fan) has linked several articles related to job searching that I thought I’d share – after all, we can always use a little brushing up on our job hunting skills.

The Ten Worst Mistakes for First Time Job Hunters (from FINS Finance)

What You Shouldn’t Post on Your Facebook Page if You Want a Job (from The Atlantic)

My hope is to post a more in-depth article on this subject at a later date. In the meantime, share your favourite job searching tips with us via the comments page or email!
