Follow us on the path to finding your first job out of college
If you’re feeling the struggle of post-grad life, our new video series “Graduated—and Unemployed” is full of laughs and job search advice to help you land an awesome job.
Congrats, class of 2017. You made it. All of those cheap boxes of wine, midday meltdowns, 20-cent noodles, and late night cram sessions are behind you. You’re on your way. But….you’re not quite there yet. Because if you’re like 79% of last year’s graduates, you still don’t have a job.
Monster’s newest video series, Graduated—and Unemployed, is here to help—and hopefully provide a few laughs for those all-too-real moments everyone encounters on the journey to a full-time job and a 401(k).
If you've been following along (it's OK if you haven’t, you can catch up below), you'll know that Jessica woke up the day after graduation wondering what the heck she was going to do now. She’s done her due diligence by creating a job search plan, updating her resume, applying to jobs, even attending a networking event to make professional contacts.
And it looks like everything is finally starting to fall into place—Jessica scored her first interview (yay!), making sure to first do some company research and practice interview questions. Now that she’s gotten the hang of interviewing, see if Jessica gets a job offer in the final episode: Breath mints, ping pong tables, and job offers.
Join Jessica as she guides you through the post-college job hunt, and then click through the links below for more job search advice.
