This year's college grads are stepping into a bleak job market. As the unemployment rate continues to climb, more members of this year's graduating class are heading straight to grad school, many no doubt hoping their employment prospects will brighten by the time they finish.
But if grad school isn't in your master plan, don't fret. A recent survey found that 54 percent of employers plan to hire 2009 grads, down only slightly from last year. A survey by CollegeGrad.com actually found that entry-level hiring, while down 1.5 percent from last year, is up 11.4 percent from 2007.
Knowing how to find job openings—and how to stand out once you do—is key to your success.
