Six Steps for First-Time Job Hunters By  Alina Dizik, special to CareerRookie.com   Starting your job search in a struggling economy can be daunting. But it's important to realize that many businesses are still looking for new  talent to fill the pipeline. Additionally, companies are eager to decrease costs by paying entry-level salaries to those just starting out. So while  competition may be fierce, there are still plenty of ways to get ahead. Here are six steps to land your first job: Gather References Making sure there are three people who are willing to vouch for you can make the job search go smoothly once you reach the HR office. Ideally,  references should include both professors and previous managers or anyone who can attest to your skills in a professional setting. Regardless  of who your reference is, make sure the person will provide an excellent reference; too often, lukewarm references end up costing a candidate  the job, experts say. Alert your reference once you provide their contact details to an employer for a check.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
