If you are a recent graduate or in your final year of post-secondary, you know the feeling of anxiety when you realize you have to figure out what to do after school. Trust us, it is a tough time. Chances are, your school will have resources for you throughout the year before graduation: job fairs and recruitment events are quite popular. The downside? Not all students get the opportunity to be recruited right out of school (although wouldn’t that be nice?). Here are some handy websites to bookmark if you are looking to find a full-time, entry-level position after graduation.
Indeed is a simple search engine which finds results based on your keywords. You can narrow your job search down to specific cities, levels, and titles. You also have the option of creating an account and posting your resume to the site for employers to contact you.
For professionals, LinkedIn is a network to connect you to others in your field, past co-workers, join groups, and find job opportunities.

Employers can view your profile to see if you will be a good fit to the company so ensure what you are posting directly relates to our professional self.
