I built my resume up through clerkships and internships in my desired field before graduation. I ultimately met my employer through one of my bosses, who knew the company was hiring and recommended me to his contacts there. The best way to get hired is to have a personal connection. Best of luck!
I sent in my CV on an ad I saw and was called in 2 weeks later, went through several long interviews and was hired shortly afterwards. It's really about matching the right skills a the right time. Good luck in your future recruitment.
I got my most appropriate and best fitting jobs through networking and through contacts that I had made and people that I met, sometimes unexpectedly. Sometimes these connections were made through normal conversations which turned into something unexpected.
With networking, you really never where a lead might come from. They can come from the most unexpected sources.
- participate in coop, intern, shadowing, and volunteer programs so that you can learn what people in your career area of interest actually do and how they got there and how you feel about it
- talk to the head of alumni relations at your school to arrange to meet and visit graduates of your school who are working in your career area of interest so you can learn more
- talk to the reference librarian at your local library to learn about and attend meetings of professional organizations to which people in your career area of interest belong so that you can mix and mingle.
- let everyone that you know that you are exploring your career area of interest and, as long as you reassure people that you are not expecting them to know of a job and you are only looking for information and people who can provide helpful information, information can and will come from unexpected sources.
