The Pros of Part-Time Jobs

The Pros of Part-Time Jobs | EBI Career Connections Newsletter: April 2013 | Scoop.it

For many recent graduates, life may not be going exactly as planned. The rocky job market has many wondering when they'll put their education to use at a real, full-time job. But rather than accept unemployment until things turn around, they should consider taking a part-time position.

 

There are a number of reasons recent grads should look more seriously at part-time jobs. Chief among them is money. It never hurts to have a little income, and it'll get your parents off your back. Student loan debts may be due soon, plus the sooner you're able to start saving money, the sooner you'll be able to move out of your parents' house. Not to mention that having an active social life requires cash.

Where Recruiters Are Looking For You

Where Recruiters Are Looking For You | EBI Career Connections Newsletter: April 2013 | Scoop.it

Gone are the days where recruiters and hiring managers only looked through their pile of resumes to find great job candidates.

Julie Fielding's insight:

Recruiters will search applicants on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and even Google their name. They use various social media avenues to get to know who they are potentially hiring. It’s important to clean up your ‘digital footprint’ to ensure it doesn’t negatively affect your job search or future employment. When reviewing your profile think “Is there anything that might turn off a potential employer?” With the social networks you use personally, make sure you set your privacy settings wisely.
