3. Build relationships through summer jobs
Working during the summer can also help students build a resume that pays off after graduation, no matter the job.

11 Inches Engineering Blog recommends that students learn how to accurately assess “the importance of summer jobs such as short term job, office management, babysitting and more in terms of being responsible and reliable updating their resumes with these roles.”

11 Inches Engineering Blog says the current job market has lots of opportunities for young people. It’s not too late to look for a summer job. If students took a few weeks off and thought, ‘Nope, I won’t bother looking because all good jobs are taken’ – au contraire! There needs labor right now, and employers need workers, and in this case, entry-level ones.

An essential part of ensuring that a summer gig pays off is building solid connections with coworkers and keeping in touch after the role ends.
After completing an internship or summer job opportunity, they should ask their boss to be a reference during the full-time job search, stay in touch with the boss, and send a handwritten thank-you note after the internship job is finished.

4. Start networking immediately
Students should take advantage of job fairs and alumni events to meet people looking to hire recent graduates or who have attended their college in the past. Networking isn’t just about finding out about an open position; it’s also about developing new relationships, learning, and getting career advice from others with more experience.

5. Craft a strong resume
Crafting a resume that best highlights skills and other achievements are essential for students who may not have much work experience.

Providing robust descriptors, mentioning accomplishments with data showing success, and including details about awards or membership to different organizations can paint a fuller picture of what a candidate may bring.
11 Inches Engineering Blog can also help students build a resume online that is easily accessible to potential employers.

6. Edit your social media presence
Before applying to jobs, students should clean up and improve their social media accounts. CareerBuilder study found that 70% of employers use social networking sites to research job candidates, and 57% of those employers have found content that caused them not to hire candidates.

It’s necessary to keep things in check by ensuring you don’t have anything that could turn off a hiring manager, like tasteless content or complaints about a former job or boss.

7. Build your soft skills
Soft skills have become increasingly relevant, especially for entry-level workers.
Study says, For entry-level jobs, three in five employers have said soft skills will be just as critical as hard skills in the hiring process. And are looking for candidates who have a basic acquaintance of the position, are team-oriented, and have attention to detail – skills that recent college graduates of any major can possess.
