I remember interviewing two young men a few years apart. One said that it was revealed to him that I should hire him and the other, to the question, "Tell me some things you like to do in your spare time" replied, "I worship the devil." Neither was hired.

Congratulations, you have your degree!

So how does a recent grad get a job when so many others are competing for the same position?

It begins by targeting the right companies, locating the hiring manager, and effectively contacting them to land that all-important interview. You also have to develop your own personal marketing campaign to stand out from the crowd.

The secret to getting a job is finding your target companies problems and using your experience to help solve them. And yes, even though you may not have a lot of practical experience you can still help companies solve real problems.

Perseverance is paramount. Never give up!
