- Spend time on your resume. Add detail to your recent activities and remove any information that is no longer relevant.
- Find someone in your ideal profession(s) to job shadow. What better way to learn whether or not you are going to even like doing that work day to day?
- Review the logs on file in your career center. The types of positions that alumnus are now holding may have changed slightly since you (hopefully) reviewed it in December.
- Clean up your social networking sites and make them as private as possible. There is no question that employers will be looking out there for dirt, so don’t give them the opportunity to find something.
I know it seems extremely early to start dedicating time to these activities, but why not one-up your ever-growing competition by becoming better prepared and more informed than they will be? The more activities you engage in now, the more you will learn and have time to adjust your search before it becomes crunch times.
