Beginning on the Job Hunt: Resources for Soon-to-be or Recent Graduates

by Emma Teal, University of Cincinnati

Whether you are going into industry or academia, the job hunt can be a stressful experience. Writing your thesis, wrapping up your first author publication, and finishing-up experiments all while applying for jobs is a lot to handle. If you’re in the U.S., don’t write-off the possibility of working for the federal government. Also, if you are graduating soon or even if you are still a few years away, consider making and maintaining a LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn is not just a website for job seekers, but also recruiters and companies alike. There you’ll find plenty of job postings and recruitment opportunities.
