  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Job market expands for graduates Here

When it comes time to graduate, students often find themselves stressing out on whether or not they’ll be able to get a job straight out of college or whether their dream job is in demand.

A recent study released on employment trends, done by the Collegiate Employment Research Institute at Michigan State University, showed that the job market is expanding for 2007 graduates. According to the study, 864 companies and organizations supplied a growth of 4-6 percent.

However, there is no guarantee when it comes to getting a job. Individuals entering the work force must be flexible when it comes to location, starting position and hours.

JoAnn Kroll, director of the Career Center, pointed out that people who put a limitation on their own personal job market are those who have the most trouble finding a job.

“People have to be willing to go where the jobs are and openings vary by region, growth and economic development,” Kroll said.

Andrew Mason, future graduate of 2007, plans on going into sales for insurance. He will graduate with a major in interpersonal communication and a minor in entrepreneurship and wants to take his degree to South Carolina.

“I’m not really that worried about finding a job because Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities as far as population and economy,” Mason said. “There are going to be a lot of openings and it will probably be easier to get into the job market there.”

Kroll explained that whether or not a person gets the job they want can also depend on the desired work shift and a willingness to go out of state. If someone wants to be a teacher it can depend on the subject or grade they want to teach. There is a lot more to consider than just sending in a resume.

“You have to understand the market of the field you are going into,” Kroll said. “There are job openings in every field but some positions are just more competitive.”

Job fairs are one opportunity to help students meet employers and discuss job options. According to the Career Search Guide, distributed by the BGSU Career Center, this year hundreds of employers will come to campus to interview students for internships, co-ops and post-graduation career positions.

The career center offers staff members who are available to help create a resume, look over job openings and get information on internships. There are always people available who are willing to help students find a job.
