Univ. of Minn. career expert: How grads can find a job

Paul Timmins, career services director at the University of Minnesota’s College of Liberal Arts, talks about what students can do to find a job.

His classic liberal arts mantra:

“It’s not about what can I do with my major, but what can I do with the unique set of skills I’ve developed in college.”

He also mentions a point I’ve long heard and always thought was meant as a reassurring note — but which pounds the egos of those still struggling:

“There are jobs out there, and good candidates are finding jobs.”

Ouch.
