Doc’s Answer

Armelyn if you figure out how to harness the power of no other social media tool for job search, figure out LinkedIn. It’s the best resource we have available today for career and job search networking, for finding people working at companies of your interest, and for positioning yourself to be found by a recruiter who has a relevant job opening. LinkedIn is a social network designed specifically for companies and job-seekers. The company, which is a subsidiary of Microsoft, boasted upwards of 675 million members in over 200 countries. The network functions like an online resume where you can showcase your skills, find new job opportunities, or connect with potential clients. Some companies will even allow you to apply directly for their job-postings by using your LinkedIn profile.

Before you start searching for a job on LinkedIn, you need to craft a smart resume to make a great first impression online. Make sure to showcase your professional knowledge and experience by adding relevant skills and keywords, and getting other people to endorse you on LinkedIn.

Good Luck Armelyn

Doc recommends the following next steps:

Add Keywords to Your Profile – Adding keywords to your LinkedIn profile will help recruiters and companies find you. Focus on keywords that match your strongest skill sets.
Keep your profile up to date – LinkedIn members with a profile picture are 14 times more likely to receive page views, while those who post skills are 13 times more likely to have profile views compared to those who don’t, per LinkedIn’s blog.
Treat Your Profile Like Your Resume – Your resume isn’t just a list of job duties (or, at least, it shouldn’t be)—it’s a place to highlight your best accomplishments. Same goes for your LinkedIn profile: Make sure your experience section is fleshed out with bullet points that describe what you did, how well you did it, and who it impacted.
Research the companies you’re interested in and follow them – LinkedIn makes it easy to find and follow companies. If you haven't already done so, make a list of the companies you'd like to work for and follow them on LinkedIn. This will help you stay in the know about company news and new positions as they become available.

Estefany’s Answer

Hi Armelyn! I would start by looking at job openings near your campus or home. It's important that you're easily able to get to the job from either of these places so that you are not stressed about your commute time. From there look at the business hours of the places, so that you can ensure you would find a work shift that would not interfere with your class schedule. You should also check with your campus as they often will have on campus openings or a resource center that can help you find a job. Also, don't forget about scholarships! Finding scholarships could help you avoid having to work, or at least minimize the amount of hours you'll have to work.

Good luck!

Gaurav’s Answer

The first thing you do is to stop worrying. Shape your world with the power of your will. Do some research on student loans, when you think of what you want you can put your mind to achieving it.

As for finding a job, being part of IT industry, I would highly recommend picking some sort of programming skills, read up on cloud platforms like AWS or Google Cloud Platform. These may open doors for you in the freelance world. You could earn money sitting at home.

Good luck.
