The job market is completely cyclical. If you want a job for June or July, you should start in March or April at the latest. But you’ll increase your chances if you started making contacts over your winter break,” Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com, a recruiting Web site, told eWEEK.
Other difficulties in landing a job after graduation could stem from generational or motivational issues.
“The really motivated people won’t have problems, but the challenge in the millennial generation is that there are a lot out there that didn’t spend time on internships, didn’t get work experience before graduation or are more lackluster in their desire to work. They’re going to have a lot of trouble entering the work force,” Milgram said.
