re: How did you find your first real job?


I'll let you know when I find it. Just lost my job that I had (found through CL) It was a job but nothing that would lead to a career in my field. currently applying everywhere in the US in my desired field. My degree is in Marketing so I have to sift through A LOT of shite for a good entry level position.

re: How did you find your first real job?


There's some terrible information in this thread. The OP is about to get his masters degree and has no engagement with corporate world? I'd suggest he start networking with his professors, student orgs, and get a small research project with a company he'd like to work for. Or offer to work for them for free over this semester.

re: How did you find your first real job?


I had very good success with the placement center at LSU...found an internship as well as my current job through there...

FWIW, I do not believe in going into a job search timidly, though...that shite does not just happen, you have to make it happen...send out all of the resumes and make all of the phone calls you can possibly make...spend 8 solid hours per day looking for a job and you will find one...

I did exactly this. I worked on a research project with a very large company this summer. At the end of the summer, I asked if I could stay on to finish the project even if it was for free. They actually decided to pay me. So I will work part time with them during this last semester. However, I don't see it turning into a job.

My university had a career center that would have companies come in and interview soon to be graduates.
