is it better to graduate in the fall or the spring from a job opportunity perspective

Is it better to graduate in the fall or the spring from a ‘job opportunity’ perspective?

A.Typically, of ISU Ag Bus graduates each year, about ¼ to 1/3 graduate in the fall. It doesn’t really matter. While the number of job interviews in the fall is lower, the number of job opportunities per graduate is about the same. It doesn’t make too much sense to delay your graduation for job placement reasons. If you don’t find a job you like at graduation time, you can always come back to school as a ‘special’ student (after graduating) and continue to search for a job.

things not to do in the job search process

Things NOT to do in the job search process:

Do NOT show up for a job interview.

Do NOT prepare for an interview

Do NOT have a high-quality resume.

Do NOT take advantage of career-related work opportunities.

Do NOT participate in leadership development activities.

Do NOT add depth or rigor to your academic program.

Do NOT continue to interview after you have accepted a job.

Do NOT back out of a job offer ‘prematurely’.
