“The best place for college students to find a job,” a blog by Suzanne Lucas aka the Evil HR Lady, discusses how campus recruiting and career centers have evolved to better serve students needs. She explains that students majoring in fields where they are trained to do specific jobs are better served by traditional centers that post open positions. Conversely, students whose degrees can be applied a variety of ways may benefit more from learning the skills needed to get less obvious positions. For these positions, networking and obtaining experience is vital. Internships are particularly helpful.
This blog was informative and interesting with a touch of humor. Suzanne kept her blog short and linked to the full article, which was published on CBS News’ Money Watch.
The Evil HR Lady actually has vast archives of job-related advice and information for employed students and job-seekers alike. Her site, while packed, is packed with information (as opposed to advertisements). I will definitely be adding the Evil HR Lady to my Favorites!
