As seniors are getting ready for the end of this semester, many are looking for jobs — some haven’t started. According to Career Services, last semester, 50 percent of seniors had jobs coming out of graduation and 50 percent were still looking.
CareerSpot is an online database that contains every potential employer that the college knows about. Students can access it by going to www.flagler.edu/careerservices.
Every student has an account with CareerSpot and can use it whenever they want. Even after graduation, alumni have access to this database for life.
As of Thursday, there were 45 active jobs available, with more than 1,000 employers in the database. The problem is students aren’t taking advantage of this opportunity, says Director of Career Services Jenny Preffer.
“I would like to challenge Flagler College students to take more responsibility for beginning the job search process,” she said. “We are here and available to help, but students must begin by contacting us.”
