CollegeRecruiter .com Can College Recruiter Jobs Assist You Find a Job?
This is one of the best US job sites for recent graduates and also current students and allows you to quickly and easily search for your first proper graduate job, plus there's plenty of advice to get you started.
How to Search for Jobs on College Recruiter
- This site used to offer graduates two approaches to seeking jobs: the advanced search, to use if you have work experience, and the Career Channel, to use if you are a recent graduate, entry level applicant or still a student.
- They've now dispensed with this approach and just present you with a 'Job Title / Keyword' box and a 'City, State / Province' box on their home page. You can refine your search later, so just start by entering the type of job you want and the location you are interested in.
- The first time you search for jobs, a pop-up will appear asking you if you want to set up a job alert for the search terms you've entered - if you do, then just enter your email address and that's it. You can get rid of this pop-up by clicking on the small cross at the top right of the pop-up or just click anywhere outside of the pop-up itself and it will disappear.
- On the left-hand side of the jobs results page, you'll see that you can further refine the results - useful if you have too many matching results or you just want to quickly look at one particular thing.
- In 'Refine Results', they list particular employers that have jobs matching your criteria, plus jobs listed by location and job type, and a 'more' option to enable you to see more options - select whichever you want, to narrow your results down to a manageable number.
- When you enter generic keywords their search engine can bring up unexpected results. For example if you type in 'banking' you would expect to see jobs from banks, but instead the first few results (at the time this article was written) were for a Blood Bank Technologist - not what you were expecting!
Start Researching Jobs early on College Recruiter
- College Recruiter is a great place to research what jobs are out there before you actually have to start making job applications, but note that many of the jobs you will find still require specific work experience or qualifications.
- This is really worth knowing beforehand, so you can do something about any skills or experience you lack before you make your applications.
