The Mother Lode of Career Opportunities: The Most Comprehensive Collection of Entry-Level Opportunities for 2008-09


To help students find good opportunities in this tough economy, THE BLACK COLLEGIAN surveyed employers in all sectors nationwide about their college recruitment and internship plans. The response was so great, however, that we ran out of room to list them all in this issue. Instead, we've established an ongoing, online-only feature, The Mother Lode of Career Opportunities, a gold mine of entry-level career prospects including over 185 employers and counting at press time. It also features valuable advice from career services directors for seniors headed for graduation-and new careers.

Dear Seniors:

Congratulations on taking another important step toward accomplishing your educational and professional career goals. I applaud your efforts and appreciate the opportunity to assist as you navigate researching, interviewing, negotiating, and succeeding in your chosen career path.

This step in your career development should be focused on transition to work or graduate school activities. It is important that you begin NOW if you have not already done so. Your competition will not just be the graduates standing in front or behind you in the line of march. Your competition will be ALL graduates of the class of 2009-nationally and internationally.

Ask yourself: "How will I distinguish my knowledge, skills and abilities against the competition? What will make my resume stand out against the others? How will my cover letters and interviews not only highlight my credentials, but prove to the interviewers that I am the 'only' candidate they should be considering?"

The clock is ticking! The race is on!

Top 10 Things Every Senior Should Do to Prepare for Life after Graduation:

1. Revise your resume and register with the Office of Career Services at your home institution to actively participate in the on-campus recruitment program.
