In march of this year, your graduating seniors were finishing up their academic requirements and starting to think about visiting the career center to get help on preparing their resumes and picking up fundamental interviewing techniques.

Research by Heldrich showed that 58 percent of graduating seniors did not think their alma mater prepared them for their first professional job search. Imagine that!
