Job markets are competitive in today's world, no matter what the industry. Young adults have to be much more pro-active than past generations because they are competing against a large number of peers as well as laid-off workers looking to get back to work. There are several techniques that recent business management graduates can use to showcase their professional selves as best they can.

First, students or recent graduates from Reeves College must clean up their internet profiles. Any questionable pictures, activity or comments posted on their Facebook profiles can be the causal factor of not getting a call back for a job. Similarly, creating a separate email account - particularly Gmail - for the job search can help organize a person's online activity as well as prevent any employers from blocking a job application (Some employers block .edu and Hotmail addresses, according to The Province).

Second, students should reconsider the current voicemail message they have on their cellphones. If party noises are in the background, the person does not state their name or it just sounds unprofessional overall, replace it.

Use classmates and professors as practice for the real world. By treating every conversation in business management courses as if it were with a recruiter, the chances of a student getting a job offer after an actual interview are potentially much higher. To begin a business education at Reeves College, fill out the form on the right.
