Abstract

We go to college with the hopes of earning a degree that will one day get us a job. Although for most of our four (or more) years here, that seems like a distant and far-off achievement, but in our last year we eventually succumb to the unavoidable and begin the search. After the endless preaching from advisors, the non-stop flood of emails from Career Services and the relentless pimping of successful alumni in our department, we may start to get the idea that our dream career is just one great cover letter away. It can feel like getting hired is inevitable—if everyone is talking about it, surely it can’t be that hard to find a job?
