Even for those still in college, the prospect of getting the necessary experience is daunting, horrifying, even enough to send the best of us crawling back under the covers and shivering in fear. But you should know there are some hot new resources out there for current and graduated students. Check them out!

Monster.com reminds me a bit of the monster from Ghostbusters, and that’s not a good thing.

Though Linkedin and Monster may seem like great places to find work, you often end up never hearing back, getting bizarre spam emails from putting you resume out there, and often end up just as unemployed as you were before. How do I know? I applied to countless jobs through Linkedin (I’d estimate well over 30), and only heard back form one job that I ended up not pursuing. I applied to one position on Levo League, and received an email in less than a week.

Mad at your boss? Hate your job? Pissed you don’t have one? Keep it to yourself! Image courtesy of Sexy Social Media.

Another helpful tip? If you have Twitter, Facebook, or a personal blog….don’t whine about how you haven’t been hired yet or how much you hate your current job. Chances are, you’re giving potential employers another reason not to to hire you!
