To identify the types of positions you are most interested in (or most qualified for), conducting industry research is important. The work you put forth now will provide a large return on investment; the more clearly you can identify your goals, the greater your chances of fulfilling them.
Online professional networks provide useful ways to communicate with potential employers about your work experience, job skills, and education. Go to this Web site and click on “Add to profile.” If you do not have an account on this site already, please contact Career Services, and they will walk you through the process. Under “Add to profile,” find the qualifications that you have, and add them to your profile. Take a screenshot (CTRL + PRTSCN) of your profile after this update, and paste the picture in this document. As an extra boost to your profile, you may want to ask others to recommend you in these areas of qualification. Employers often review your profile for additional information. If they see that others have recommended you, that additional endorsement adds to your validation.

Have these job descriptions in front of you as you answer the questions below. For more information about searching for jobs, view the tutorial below.
