“Where’s My Job?” shouldn’t be like “Where’s Waldo?”
by Paige Faber, ACDC Peer Advisor
Searching for a job can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t know where to look. But sometimes even when you do know where to look, finding a position you’re interested in seems as difficult as locating Waldo. Luckily, ACDC has some navigation-friendly platforms to help you on your job search.
New to UNO this year is the job recruitment website Handshake! Handshake is a resource affiliated with UNO that allows you to search jobs in your career field, network with other students of your same interest, and quickly connect with ACDC’s services for even more assistance. Under the jobs tab, you are able to narrow your search using these filters: job type, industry, job function, major, and employer. With these filters, the perfect job for you is easy to find! To sign-up for your UNO Handshake account, visit this site.
Similar to Handshake, LinkedIn is also an online professional networking site. On LinkedIn, you can find available jobs, connect with employers, and follow the companies that you find most interesting. By following your favorite companies, you can stay updated on their business culture and many times their job opportunities. If you apply to work at a company and they see you are an active LinkedIn follower of their account, they might be more inclined to consider you for their open position. To create your own LinkedIn profile, visit their website.
What better way to find a perfect job than through the real-life employers themselves. Thanks to ACDC’s career fairs, this option is available to you! Every fall and spring, ACDC holds a career fair with over 100 organizations across 62 industries. To help you find the companies you’re most excited about, ACDC provides the list of all of the employers in advance to you so that you know exactly who to seek at the fair.
