So I am about to graduate from college... - September 23, 2010, 07:07 AM

…and I don’t want to find myself working the night shift drive-thru at McDonalds. I have applied to about 40 positions so far on USAjobs and have only received a few responses so far. I scour the main boards daily (Indeed, Monster, etc…) for new positions and apply accordingly, but again I have received little response. My aunt who works for the GSA said that for every open position there is usually hundreds, if not thousands, of applications sent in and it is really tough to land a federal job (or even an interview for that matter). I assume it is the same for businesses as well.

I am looking for positions in Human Resources (Full-life cycle and recruiting), Consulting, and Admin/Clerical. I am, however, completely open to different positions and am eager to learn about what you have to offer. I do have experience in HR and also extensive experience in Customer Service. I have began Six Sigma training and completed nearly 10 hours of Project Management training (CAPM certification track) and hope to test for my certification when I am eligible. I am a SHRM member and just recently joined NCMA.



I am open to travel (CONUS & OCONUS) and relocation (even abroad for the right position). I do not have a clearance, but am certainly clearable. (No criminal record, squeaky clean credit, etc…)



I will be graduating in December and I am starting early because I know the hiring process can sometimes take months.



If you think you can help me with my situation please let me know. You can email me at jasoncb4@vt.edu if you prefer.

Thanks!!


Go Hokies!!!

Oh and no, I do not have a Computer Science degree. I do, however, have a lot of experience with Microsoft Office and basic experience with Lotus Notes, Adobe Acrobat, Windows and Mac systems, and the ability to troubleshoot issues effectively.

I will stay in college, but at the graduate level. I plan to start next fall earning my MBA with a Management concentration.

Apply for an internship now, if you can balance school and a part time job. Starting pay may be small, but when you graduate you will most likely be hired on full time if you do well. Best way to get a job out of college. Otherwise, you will just get lost in a sea of resumes on all those huge recruit sites.

Not to mention the exodus of NCOs and Officers that apply for those jobs, and get a 5 or 10 point preference.

Does your school offer any sort of job placement help? Or can they connect you with alumni? Usually having an "in" is the best way to get a job any more.

The problem is that there aren't too many internships to be had around here. (I go to Virginia Tech where the scenery is not of massive office buildings and traffic jams, but corn fields and cows...the nearest "big" city is Roanoke and it's a hike) For that very reason I am applying to other schools such as GMU and Maryland as they put me in a better position geographically.

Thanks for the advice!

Yes. The career center here is great, but they too are overwhelmed with too few positions for the number of applicants. I am just trying to work every angle I can in hopes that one will pan out.
