Important Note re: Hiring Timelines

For current seniors, it can be challenging to ascertain whether a position is meant for YOU, i.e., someone graduating in May 2022 OR if it’s intended for someone who can start sooner, i.e., in less than a month. If possible, you could consider reaching out to the prospective employer to ask if 2022 grads can apply. If you’re unsure, you might still choose to apply and hope they keep your application on file, but understand that they may want someone who is able to start earlier. At the very least, add the organization to your “list of employers to revisit,” because they may post opportunities in the future that better match with your timeline.

Great reminder for everyone: Whether you’re attending a virtual event or applying for an opportunity, there are many ways to learn about career paths and gain experience. Talk to a career advisor about finding options that align with your interests and goals.
