People need to build their own strategy of getting a job before getting out of college. There is a process that informs individuals about how to get and find a job after college. First, do today and every day. Students may think that they can find a job after graduation; however, they have to start now -“Do an action now and every day.” Next is ” Cast a wide net.” Don’t narrow your opportunities by your career.
