Just Graduated?

Here are some steps you can take to jumpstart your job search no matter what field you are in.

College Resources

  • Make an appointment to meet with one of Touro's career counselors who can help you develop appropriate strategies for your individual job search.
  • Tap into Touro College's alumni resources
  • Connect with Touro College alumni on LinkedIn and other social networking sites.

Your Online Persona

  • In addition to having a fine-tuned résumé, develop a portfolio that showcases examples of your work from classes, internships, or any activities you participated in that relate to your field.
  • Manage your digital footprint. Google yourself to see what employers will find. 
  • Re-examine the contents of your profiles on social media sites. 
  • Maximize privacy settings for personal sites such as Facebook and your professional profiles, such as LinkedIn, accessible to all potential employers and contacts. 
  • If you are using Twitter, lock your profile unless it is professional in nature.

Making Connections

  • Set up meetings with professionals in your industry to ask for their advice and learn more about their career paths. Do not ask new contacts for jobs, but instead ask them to share information and tips as you try to break into the market. Even though this may not lead to an immediate payoff, genuine relationship building with professionals in your field is important for long-term success.
  • Follow up with prospective employers to ensure that recruiters received your résumé and to ask about the timeline for their hiring process. However, avoid calling companies who specifically ask for "No phone calls."

Job Listings

Sites like Monster and Indeed are great, but job boards tailored to your industry can often be more fruitful. Check out the links below for some additional options. Also be sure to check out professional associations, recruiters, and the employment pages of individual companies where you might like to work. 

Manage Your Online Presence

In addition to monitoring what is visible on your social media accounts and Google search results, you might consider putting together a personal website to collect links to various profiles, publish your thoughts on a blog, or post portfolio pieces. Here are some free, easy-to-use tools that can help.
