After a busy week of presentations for Employment BOOST, the career services company continued operating at full force. Upon returning from traveling to New York to visit Allscripts and presenting at the Novi Battery Show, the Employment BOOST team found themselves in Illinois to present to students attending Northern Illinois University.
Understanding that the steps to becoming a top candidate in today’s job market are evolving, NIU wanted to present their finance department students with the best chance at landing a job upon graduation. “It’s never too early to start thinking about your career and marketing yourself as well as possible, because with over 2 million new graduates in the USA every year, the job market’s incredibly competitive” says Client Success Manager, Ryan Miller. In addition to providing the opportunity for their students, the staff hopes to help connect them with NIU Alumni for additional resources in future endeavors.
During this event, Employment BOOST staff presented industry best practices on formatting, SEO keywords, and how to frame accomplishments in a way that highlights their skill sets. “It was great getting a chance to work with students that were interested in putting their best foot forward in the professional world. It’s so important to establish that foundation early on and support good habits in searching for internships and jobs, not just now, but for years to come” says Senior Career Services Associate, James Hunter Warning.
With the expansion of using applicant tracking systems (ATS) and the use of search engine optimized (SEO), the job search process has become more meticulous than it has ever been. Outside of creating an impactful resume, networking has become a critical piece in the job seeker’s journey to land a position. With the knowledge that Employment BOOST provided the attending students, the resources give the soon-to-be job seekers a better chance at landing competitive entry-level positions.
