I am recent grad i have been in the search since May but have not found anything. i have been doing leetcode and hackerrank but still not passing my interviews.
i am based in dallas. i am applying for positions in north carolina and washington since those are the places i want to start my career in.
i am looking for referals.
i am also wondering is it a good idea to move to one of those location and get a part time job while o continue my search?
what would you do if this was you?
thanks in advance.
- Meltwater / Mgmt gBkn82Your location may be hurting you. If I come across a candidate out of state and I’m under constraints concerning hiring timing, I usually pass on that candidate in favor of someone local, if the candidate pool is big enough. I’d definitely either include a relocation timeline in your candidate message or cover letter to out of area job postings.
- Meltwater / Mgmt gBkn82On your resume when you outline internships, past jobs, academics, and extra curricular activities I would highlight both instances of achievement and also detail how you affected or changed or implemented something. This would show not just the success you enjoyed (drive) but also illustrate that you make an impact and don’t shy away from challenges (stamina). Your resume should really do this for all the points listed, and should avoid being just a breakdown of duties in a particular role.Oct 28, 2019 1
- Probably not a popular company on here, but Bank of America has a DFW office in Plano that was hiring like crazy when I worked with them awhile back.
Could get in the door there and try to transition to their CLT office, which is unlikely, but it would be easier to apply to other banks in the Charlotte area with previous Financial Services experience.
Once one helps you move to CLT, you can look for a position wherever in NC you were hoping to go.
It’s a longer play, but it could be a viable option. The banks pay decently so you’d have some breathing room during your job search.
