Landing a job directly out of college can be a daunting task. New graduates are faced with competition across the country from experienced professionals and classmates as they go for open positions. Preparation throughout their undergraduate career has become a key to landing that pivotal first job. Internships, co-ops and portfolio building are all ways students can get ahead of their competitors and network their way to a full-time position. On tonight’s show, host, Lawrence Burns, Vice President for External Affairs, will speak with four guests who are familiar with the importance of internships and experience building before graduation.
