On Tuesday, the career counselor in my placement seminar, Mr. Castro, said something that picked my hopes up with the whole "oh man, am I gonna have a job after graduation?" freakout. He said "Okay. 7% of the country is unemployed. You know what that means? That means that 93% have jobs!" He pointed out that there are jobs out there. You just have to find them.
After that, I did a little search on job placement. Apparently, only about 3% of available positions are posted online. A huge reason why people hear about jobs are either physically search the field or word-of-mouth. Newtorking, people! It' s more important than you think!
