The best way to get ahead of the game is to network with business lead in your hometown if you plan on coming back to work there. Keep in touch with them. You may even want to get a summer job with them.

There should be job fairs ran by the college you are going to. If there are no possible employment opportunities out of the region you are trying to go to then try and start reaching out to the desired company's and seeing if they are hiring. Offering to start off as an intern is a great way to get you foot in the door. Do what you can to start the networking soonest. Networking is the best wya to really be known within an industry and it increases your chances of getting hired.

Hi Sarah,


Most colleges have jobs placements or career development classes. For example resume writing and interview tips To secure a job after college start applying toward your senior year and talk with your college job placement department. Most companies have management training program or entry level positions and there is a better change on landing with a job if the school is involved.


Another way start researching is to go directly on the company website. Be prepared instead of unprepared of the job expectation and requirements.


Good luck

Interning at various companies within your hometown helps you to start your network and build those important business relationships. Looking at LinkedIn and reviewing local company websites for opportunities will also help.

If you return to your hometown in the summer, I would suggest networking at and attending your local chamber of commerce events.
