From New Grad to Employed: How?

So you've gotten the degree. Now you need a job. How?

Well, if you've been reading this blog (or if you do some backtracking), you'll find what I hope are some useful tips about internships, networking, LinkedIn, resume and cover letter content, and so on.

Here are two more useful links. The first, from Fast Company, points out that you have to prove you deserve the job. (Duh.) That means the world doesn't owe you a living, of course. It also means that you have to learn how to speak the language of jobs, rather than schooling. Yup--it's like learning to speak another language.

The second gives you some practical strategies about where to speak that language. Develop showcases--portfolios, websites, clusters of others who know you and will sing your praises.
