Locate a job posting in your field that would interest you after graduation, one where the employer is identified rather than an anonymous posting or staffing agency opening. If you are currently employed in a position you would like to keep, look for a position one level above your current position (it could be with your organization but if that position is not posted at your organization, check a competitor who might have a posting for a position one level above yours. If that doesn't work, try talking to your supervisor about possibly sharing the job description for their position with you). The cover letter, resume, application, job interview, and thank you letter you do in this course will be targeted toward this position. So be sure to find a position you are truly interested in securing. If you are unfamiliar with how to search for a position, reach out to your Career Services Advisor to assist you with using internet resources to locate positions. Throughout this course you can reach out to both the instructor and your Career Services Advisor for support with the course.
