Graduation is right around the corner for the class of 2012! I’m sure that is sad, exciting, scary, and a whole lot of other emotions for most of those who will venture out into the real world.
Unfortunately, that means trying to find a job in an economy that is clearly struggling and has been for many years.
What should you do if you are one of the ones who is now trying to find jobs for college graduates?
You might add Gradspring into your list of websites and strategies. It is a relatively new site where recent college graduates (or soon to be graduates) can go to find real entry level jobs. The emphasis is on “REAL” because no home jobs or Internet jobs you can do from your local coffee shop are allowed.
If you are graduating any time this year, you should be VERY happy to get an entry level job. Even if you do have work experience, expecting something more than entry level might not be realistic.
So, Gradspring is perfect for college graduates who want to find and apply to as many jobs that they can while avoiding the scam jobs and types of jobs that might be posted on Craigslist.
It is free to sign up and browse through the available jobs. Once you find something you are interested in though, it will cost you $35 for one month, $75 for 3 months, or $125 for 6 months to find out more and apply. Interestingly, the 6 month $125 price includes free 6 month extensions forever until you get that job so the most you can ever pay is $125 if you sign up for that right from the start.
