With college seniors around the nation returning to their respective campuses following spring break recess, many will undoubtedly turn their attention to their impending graduation and the search for their first post-collegiate job. A new analysis of the entry-level job market estimates that while the job market continues to strengthen for college graduates, the environment remains highly competitive, which may force some to pursue unexpected career paths.
In its annual college graduate job-market outlook, global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. says this year’s crop of 1.8 million bachelor’s degree recipients will be able to take advantage of the 36 consecutive months of private-sector employment growth that has occurred since the jobs recovery began in earnest in March 2010.

This is especially true for new graduates, who are likely to have less real-world experience to point to in job interviews,” said John A.

Career fairs give college students opportunities to make contact with employers who are looking to hire the best and brightest individuals. However, you don’t want to show up to a career fair without a plan. I believe the following post will better prepare you for this invaluable experience.
It’s that time of year– the college career fair circuit is in full effect. One of the goals of the Viacom College Relations team is to spread awareness about our internship program. In the fall, we travel to a variety of college campuses every week to find talented students (like you).
It’s always rewarding to meet students in person, hear about their passions, and tell them about the great opportunities they have ahead of them. Some of the young people we meet really blow us away, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. It’s easy to make a great impression if you follow a few rules. This is why I feel it’s important to outline the do’s and don’ts of career fairs.
