ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The job picture is starting to look a little bit brighter for Minnesota college grads and job seekers.
Employers expect to hire 8.6 percent more graduates from this year’s class than they did last year.
Career Consultant Lauren Berger says it will still take time and effort to land a great job.
She suggests new grads get out of their comfort zones and talk to people they don't know, attend networking events, and take initiative.
In the digital age, Berger says job seekers want to make sure they are searchable online -- but that the results make a good impression; she advises new grads to clean up their digital presence and make sure that frat party pictures aren't the impression they make on the web.
