Get a head start on the job search


“I would say the most important part of the resume is your experience, that’s why I always encourage students to try to do as much as they can especially those that are involved in their major, so they have something to put on their resume,” Linh Nguyen, ASU Career Advisor says

Linh Nguyen says adding as much as possible to the experience portion is extremely beneficial for students

“Experience can not only tell that they can already have something in the part, but then through that the future recruiter will see and know what kind of  personality they are what characteristic they have, and would that be fit for the company that they applied for,” Nguyen says.

Campuses also offer job fairs to help students get a head start on networking.

“The reason why I tell them to start that early is because they can fail and do it again, and they would still have time. It would leave that big gap after they graduate so they can be a new employee somewhere in some place,” Nguyen says.

Company recruiters say when looking at applications they like applicants to be both coachable and match the company’s culture.

“Sometimes what we look for is a well-rounded individual but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you would be excluded. We do want people that would fit into our culture, so no matter what the education is or the skill set is- we love for someone who shows initiative or the ability to learn,” Audrey Wilde, TimeClock Plus Recruiting Manager, says.

Wilde went on to say that it is also important for applicants to be involved with the community. 

“Whenever you are involved in a community it shows that you would give back to your community, but you show [that you are coachable] and also that you can work with teams usually you’re not ever going to be working in a community by yourself, so that’s important for us and for our culture of course,” Wilde says.
