With diploma in hand from the University of Arizona you set out on the job search, but quickly discover that the industry you're searching in is more saturated with grads than you expected and the competition is making it hard to find openings.
It's something we hear commonly from recent graduates, but just because the competition is high doesn't mean the opportunities aren't there. In your job search you should leave no stone unturned, and that's where FirstJob differs from other job hunting services. We don't just help graduates connect with opportunities; we provide tools, tips and services you won't find anywhere else.
FirstJob is the only job site of its kind, matching college graduates with quality internship and entry-level positions through their existing social networks. The company’s mission is to simplify the job search by creating the industry’s most intuitive user experience, making it easy for young professionals to stand out in the application process — and for employers to source the best talent.
Opportunities Are Closer Than you Think
Among your various social networks you have company connections you may not even know about that present an opportunity to get your foot in the door. FirstJob offers "Company Connect" to compile your social contacts and reveal a list of your strongest company connections, showing you opportunities you didn't even know were there.
Browsing through endless page of job openings on classified sites not only wastes times, but it can hit your morale hard when you find job after job you're not qualified for. FirstJob is less like a corporate "meat market", instead instantly matching the skills of recent grads to entry-level jobs and quality internship opportunities among a database with more than 100,000+ opportunities.
Let Your Network Sell You
Word of mouth praise doesn't just help sell products and services - it can help sell you. No other job search system offers recent grads a way to collect and display endorsements from their list of relevant contacts. When you make job connections, you'll have endorsements backing you to help you land that first job.
FirstJob connects recent college grads from the University of Arizona with high paying entry level jobs and quality internship opportunities. Get started today to take the search out of "job search" or discover more tips for career success at the FirstJob blog.
