Our website and publication are great resources for students looking to enter the workforce—whether they are searching for hourly and part-time jobs during college or entry level to mid-management positions after graduation.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
The Employment Guide, a division of Dominion Enterprises, will participate in the NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) 2013 Conference & Expo June 4-7 in Orlando, FL. The niche job board and publisher will help career services professionals identify current job opportunities for college students and recent graduates.
According to a report by the Economic Policy Institute, the 2013 unemployment rate among recent college graduates (ages 21 to 24) is 8.8 percent. That figure is higher than the national average, which the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed was 7.5 percent as of April 2013.
Chris Baker, vice president and general manager of the Employment Guide, believes students should be equipped with practical knowledge in order to meet the challenges of finding employment in today’s economy.
“The job search can be both overwhelming and underwhelming for recent or soon-to-be graduates,” said Baker. “Our website and publication are great resources for students looking to enter the workforce—whether they are searching for hourly and part-time jobs during college or entry level to mid-management positions after graduation. We aim to empower job seekers with sound information that has real-world applications.”
EmploymentGuide.com provides an array of tools for job seekers, including videos, an education center and a popular career blog which features resume and interview tips, industry news and advice. The site can be accessed via smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
“It’s essential for students to have options once they graduate from college. Some may find a job and others may pursue an advanced degree. For those very reasons, Employment Guide offers access to a multitude of career and education opportunities,” said Tom Baron, who leads the Employment Guide’s career education department. “Our visitors are looking for jobs and additional training. Employers and institutions post their listings on our site because they are able to make direct contact with a receptive audience.”
Interested career services professionals, colleges and employers are encouraged to visit booth # 324 for more information.
