Career tip #3 How early should I start applying for a job?

In this job market you should always be looking. If you are just starting college (two-year or four-year, it doesn’t matter) make it your business to get exposure to prospective employers who visit campus and to network with graduates from your school who are working at an employer that interestss you.

If you wait until your senior or last year of your degree program to show employers your interest or to build a network, you will have put yourself at a distinct disadvantage. Such disadvantages will make your job search more stressful and less succcessful than it might have been.
