What are the best ways to start a job search?

Use the career center at your school. Speak to your professors, volunteer for events offered by professional associations. Take a look at the websites of companies for which you’d like to work and determine what key competencies they are looking for and make sure you have them. Network and temp to get experience. Companies like LAC Group are invaluable. Never underestimate that fact. Employers pay for professional services because they want qualified candidates who have been prescreened and evaluated.
