1. Targeted Search

Avoid applying for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. Aim for QUALITY, not quantity. Research companies that share your values. Search for companies in your industry. Find local companies in the Chamber of Commerce directory.

2. Networking

Complete your LinkedIn profile. Create a blog or website to showcase your skills. Create a professional Twitter account. Join professional groups on Facebook.

Connect with recruiters, industry experts, current/past colleagues, UNG students, and alumni.

Follow companies, industry news, and discover opportunities.

3. Use our job board, Handshake, to find opportunities.

Explore thousands of employers across the country. Upload your resume and search for jobs/internships. See listings of virtual events such as virtual career fairs and live chats.

Create your Handshake profile and jump start your job search!

4. To-Do List

Make your job search manageable by creating a daily To-Do list. Accomplish small steps every day to move closer to your goals.
