When is the best time to begin a job search? If you're asking the question, the best time is now. Before your first interview takes place, plan your career moves. It's not unusual for an entry-level job seeker to spend six months to a year finding the job that best matches their interests and skills.

For a full-time position after graduation, some begin a job search during the school year while others wait until after graduation. Your career interests, values and financial situation may also have an impact on when to begin.  Always keep in mind that your job search is a job, planning, networking and follow-up are major components of a successful job search.

Once you begin a job search, how can you avoid job hunt anxiety? It may be easier than you imagine if you customize your own job search plan.  Please contact Career Services for assistance with your job search.
