  Does Your College Care If You Land A Good Job?
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2016
Although many students go to college with the goal of landing a good job at graduation, most colleges don’t care all that much about student employment goals. In fact, to ensure their survival, many colleges have very different goals: - Recruit enough new students to fill the class for next year - Keep students in school (paying tuition) as long as possible - Obtain donations from alumni - Seek money from all other...
 
  Five Factors That Lead To Student Employment Success
by Bob Roth - May, 2016
College students and their parents should realize that there is a sequence of steps that can be followed to increase the likelihood of a student’s success in the job market. Unfortunately, most students pay little attention to anything associated with their job search until they reach the second semester of their senior year. That is not good. The timing of many job search preparation actions and activities is critical....
 
  Your HS Student May Not Be Ready for College
by Bob Roth - May, 2016
Before parents decide to send their High School graduates off to college, they should carefully consider their student’s chances for college success. As they told me during my own freshman orientation, “Look to the right! Look to the left! One of those two students won’t be here for graduation.” Those odds are even worse at some colleges today. That’s why it doesn’t make sense for parents to send a child off to college when he...
 
  Great References Must Be Cultivated
by Bob Roth - Apr, 2016
There is an important aspect of the senior year job search that most college students fail to appreciate, undervalue and sometimes ignore. Many students don’t seem to understand that the best employers place a great deal of weight on good references. These employers won’t hire someone who can’t provide them with a list of people who are willing to serve as positive and enthusiastic references. The best references are respec...
 
  Have You Stubbed Your Toe Today?
by Bob Roth - Apr, 2016
There is one secret to success that every college student should take to heart. Nothing gets done when you do nothing. You must take action and move in one direction or another, if you are to accomplish your goals. Unfortunately, many talented students are afraid to step off the curb. They let their fear of failure hold them back. They sit on the sidelines and play it safe. However, they will never find success if they don’...
 
  College Students Earn Their Job Offers Before They Graduate
by Bob Roth - Apr, 2016
It should not come as a surprise to college students that good jobs do not just fall into someone’s lap. The students who receive the best job offers have earned them. Therefore, it is important to understand that the term “earned” means that the student’s performance has been consistently good throughout the college years. It does not mean a last minute flurry of improved performance near the end of the senior year. Emp...
 
  College Students Have Many Obligations
by Bob Roth - Mar, 2016
To be successful, every college student has a long list of obligations that he or she must be willing to fulfill. Since these obligations are not always made clear to students, many end up falling short in several important areas. Students must be aware of the following obligations and stay on top of their performance and progress, as they move through college. Student obligations include: 1. Financial Obligations - Co...
 
  Student Employment Success is Just as Important as Financial Aid
by Bob Roth - Feb, 2016
Is it better for students to receive 20, 40 or 60 thousand dollars in Financial Aid in the form of Student Loans or obtain the information, training and guidance that greatly increases their chances of landing A Job that pays 40, 50 or 60 thousand dollars a year? Of course it would be great if a college would do both. However, there are comparisons that can tell us where your college stands on this issue. Where does your co...
 
  Students Can't Ignore Important Activities And Still Expect To Land A Good Job
by Bob Roth - Feb, 2016
When students go through college without doing any of the things that lead to the best jobs, they should expect to be disappointed. The competition for good jobs is stiff, even in an excellent job market. Employers do not relax their requirements just because they have more open jobs. And yet, each year, many students graduate from college unprepared to compete for those jobs. Students who have already graduated or are i...
 
  Before Students Enter College, They Should Estimate How Much They Will Need To Earn When They Graduate
by Bob Roth - Jan, 2016
Students often enter college without looking ahead to the jobs that will result from their chosen fields of study and what those jobs will pay. Unrealistic expectations about their living arrangements and available spending money can result from a lack of knowledge. By taking a few minutes to answer some important questions and then doing a bit of research, serious student disappointments can be avoided. College applica...
