Advice about looking for that first or second job is in no short supply. We reviewed a number of websites, articles, and blogs about the job search.

The best advice is to know yourself and your goals. Many of the lists encourage you to take self-assessments. The career services office at your institution should be able to help you with those. Be careful: self-assessments need professional guidance and interpretation. Just because the assessment reveals that you have a creative side doesn’t mean you are destined to be the next Michelangelo.
