Got Jobs?

As the countdown to graduation whittles into double-digit territory, the pressure of finding a job post-graduation grows.

As a COM student, the application process doesn’t really kick off until March. Since we are applying for a supply and demand business, we don’t get hired until there is a client demand present, and a short time to fill it.

3. Hitting the "submit" button:

4. Anxiously waiting to hear back:

5. Receiving a confirmation email: 

 

 

Good luck fellow Class of 2016. Let’s get the job (hunting) done!
