Early start can land job

(The Modesto Bee) -- If you're a senior and you haven't started your job search, start now. Don't wait until a week or two before graduation, say directors of college career services.

Here are more job-hunting tips:

Talk to the people who work in your campus career-services center. They organize job fairs and interview days for recruiters on campus. They get phone calls and letters all the time from employers looking for job candidates.

Use networks of friends, professors and alumni to find out about job openings.

Be active, not reactive. Don't just put your resume on Web sites and wait for the phone to ring.

Do internships before or during senior year. They can show you what you like or don't like to do, and expose you to possible future employers.
