These days, getting a job right out of college is harder than ever. Students spend their time studying, writing papers, acing tests, and when it comes time to apply for those “real world” jobs, they hope that their grades, meticulously put together resume, professionally written cover letter and personal drive will land them a good job. Unfortunately, a high grade point average and great looking resume are not enough anymore. Today, employers have said the number one thing they look at above all else, is a potential candidate’s internship experience.
Check out the simulator at the end of this article to see how prepared you are for the post-college job hunt!
