The Job Search In Your 20s

We've already seen what the job search is like for people who have a wealth of experience, but what's in store for those who are much younger?  For job seekers in their 20s, it's all about taking risks.

Recent college graduates generally don't have a lot to stand on when it comes to previous work experience.  But just because there isn't much time for actual work doesn't mean the job search should wait until college is done.  A college student should begin their hunt the moment they declare a major.  This work should start with building a professional network.  There are plenty of people out there who are willing to help, whether they are professors or family friends.

College students can also use their time to try out different career paths until they find one that fits.  It's not a good idea to graduate without having a career in mind.  That's why students should be on the lookout for opportunities during summer or winter break.  Organizations are always looking for volunteers or interns, and these opportunities will help build experience for post-college life.  Working for free isn't exactly an appealing choice, but all of that hard work will be worth it when it comes time to put together a resume.

What other advice would you have for college job seekers?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
