#1 Reason to Use Your Campus Career Center: Job-Search Success!

The secret to job-search success may be as simple as making sure you use your campus career center.

A study of more than 13,000 Class of 2007 grads found that students who used the career center and its resources were more likely to report job-search success than their friends who decided to go it alone.

In fact, more than 80 percent of students who reported having full-time jobs before graduation used the career center. As a rule, successful students took advantage of opportunities to connect face-to-face with employers through campus interviews, employer information sessions, and other chances to speak with employer representations—opportunities  typically set up by the career center. More than half of students who had full-time jobs before graduation had applied through a career center-sponsored career fair, and more than 40 percent had posted their resumes through their career center’s web site.
