Job Outlook Good For College Seniors

March 14, 2012, 6:42 AM by Austin Hoffman

Job Outlook Good For College Seniors
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

There's good news for college students who are ready to graduate. Nationally, the job out look is improving. But, how is it doing locally?

Many college seniors are excited about what they're seeing. While they say the situation could probably be better, it could also be a whole lot worse.

"I think there's quite a few companies here that we can definitely make a play at," South Dakota State University senior Andrew Brower said.

More than 140 companies and 40 school districts from across the region took applications at Tuesday's Big Job Fair in Sioux Falls. For Brower, who will soon graduate with a master's degree in economics from SDSU, it was a good day.

"Looking at the stock market, January was a really good month and everything.  So, I think the sentiment in the market is that everything is picking up.  So, hopefully that translates into the job market," Brower said.

Riley Jensen will soon graduate from Dakota State University and is also looking for that first full-time job. He agrees that the market is looking up. 

"Some of my good friends that had some of the hardest problems trying to find a job last year and they had to interview and interview and interview.  And it looks like the market has gone up; a lot for jobs this year," Jensen said.

Both students say the internet is one of the biggest tools they'll use in their job search.  But, they also know it's important to get face-to-face with prospective employers so they can see who they really are.

"Something like this really gets you face-to-face with people that applying on line just doesn't do,” Brower said.

"It gives me an idea what companies are looking for a job," Jensen said.

The Association of Career Centers sponsored the event and also held another fair earlier this month in Rapid City.
