Take heart, June grads
This is the highest since 2007. Up from 65% last year.
A third of these employers will pay more than they did last year--and 28% will pay $50,000 or more.
What are the skills that make you stand out?
Leadership--48% of employers surveyed want this.
What are the hot fields?
On the money side, 2/3 of the employers said they were willing to negotiate--so don't feel like you must take the first offer.
So get moving. Check with the school's career office--they have listings you will not find anywhere else.
Follow companies on social media.
Join professional associations.
Join the alumni association.
Attend job fairs.
I am "attending" an online networking thing today--courtesy of my alumni association. I would love to network with movie people in the animation business, but if because of my advanced years, I am asked for advice, I will give it.
