    1. Donít delay your search, if not already started:

    As essential job search advice for the college students is that you need to start early, according to Jason Weingarten, co-founder, and CEO of talent acquisition software Yello.

    He said, if the about to be grads are just beginning their job search, they are actually behind. As early as the first year of college life, college students must start building their networks by taking part in club events, networking with faculty members, taking leadership roles within campus organizations.

    Geoff Gross, president, and CEO of Medical Guardian, said that even if youíre not interested in a particular career opportunity, the job application process can yet be helpful. You must appear in as many interviews and earn more interviewing experience as much as possible so when you land an interview for your dream job, youíll exactly know how to impress the recruiters or hiring manager.

    Gross said that when it comes to applying for jobs, donít hold back. Even if the job description doesnít sound like the type of work you wish to do, it will never hurt if you try and apply, provided you are qualified.

    2. Improve your social media presence

    Do remember that in this digital era, social media would be involved in your job search; recent grads must create a strong digital presence to make them searchable online, said Susan Vitale, CMO of applicant-tracking system iCIMS.

    Mr. Vitale said that social networking sites are always great to show off your professional skills and expand your network gradually. This also offers candidates several opportunities to connect with and interact with, companies to improve their chances of being noticed.

    Students must keep in mind that hiring managers are on social media as well and would search for a candidateís profile, according to Alexa Merschel, national talent ID leader for PwC US.

    He said that students must not forget that some of the people on social media are potential employers and future colleagues as well. The best personal brands have a professional and an adequate online presence. She quoted that owing to this, job seekers must be aware of questionable tweets and party images.

    3. Do offline networking:

    Digital networking is good, but speaking with similarly minded professionals or seasoned leaders in real also helps to influence your ultimate career path.

    In real time, networking appears the biggest thing that makes students uncomfortable, but doing so will not be good for you, said, Gross. You need to keep updated resumes and business cards with you wherever you visit because you never know when an opportunity to a network would happen and what could come out of it.
