Job market competition requires reevaluation of job search techniques

Despite increasing college tuition and student loan prices, The Huffington Post has reported that 1 in 2 college graduates are
still jobless or underemployed
.  ”While there’s strong demand in science, education and health fields, arts and humanities flounder…Taking underemployment into consideration, the job prospects for bachelor’s degree holders fell last year to the lowest level in more than a decade.”  These statistics have left recent graduates feeling directionless.

To get ahead of some of the competition as a job seeker (whether recent graduates or not), you should be reevaluating your job searching skills.  Define your goal, job search and social media skills, networking and  interviewing techniques, and more by revisiting YCDWYL’s “Job Search Analysis” series.
