Opportunities are everywhere
The most successful job seekers take a varied and proactive approach to their search. This goes way beyond filling out a bunch online applications and waiting for a phone call from a recruiter. To speed up the process of landing that internship or job, it's important to utilize multiple online resources, networking, career-related events, and getting more involved on and off campus. Finally, it is important to follow up with employers after applying to make sure they reviewed your resume and increase your chances of receiving a response from your application.
