Take hope, grads

Susan Ricker, CareerBuilder, says the outlook of getting a job is the best it's been since 2007. Sixty-five percent of employers are hiring (last yr this was 57%).

Try to highlight the qualities you have that are in demand. Demand areas are:

Business and technical
Computer and info sciences
Engineering
Math and statistics
Health pros and clinical sciences
Communications and journalism
Liberal arts and sciences
Science tch
Education

Try to link your background to one of these. Need more short-term training? Get it.

Network on- and off-line. Before this, though, edit all your social network venues to be sure you look professional.

You may meet people at the gym. Join professional societies in your strongest area--go to meetings.

Back in the in the day, we used to go to chamber of commerce mixers where you can chat with business owners.

Be creative.
