Tough job market shouldn’t discourage summer graduates A full résumé, internships and the right interview skills can help search, Career Services coordinator says. BY JASON BOYD The Shorthorn news editor

It’s tough out there after graduation. A National Association of Colleges and Employers’ national survey of summer 2009 graduating seniors showed less than 19 percent had a job. In this shrinking job market, employers want more from applicants than ever before, said Debbie Villagomez, Career Services employer relations and career events coordinator. Graduates compete with past graduates who have come back to school and are re-entering the job market for employers, who are hiring less and less. “The biggest piece of advice we can give is a degree isn’t enough,” she said. An internship, maybe two, can put students on the top of hiring lists, Villagomez said. Soft skills, like how to talk to others, also help set one apart, especially in an interview. Villagomez suggests getting involved on campus. Ms. UTA Rosita Tran has been involved on campus for more than two years, and

recommends it to anyone wanting to develop interpersonal skills. “You need help inside and outside of the classroom,” she said. She said she’s formed lasting friendships that will help her network in the future, learned her strengths and weakness, and has something on her résumé that gives her an advantage. Villagomez’s office offers mock interviews, including a webcam recorded one that can later be critiqued. Using this service to catch bad habits, like repeating “um” and “like” and not making eye contact, can result in better real-world results, she said. Career Services offers help year-round, she said. The office is open to alumni, not just recent graduates. The need is more evident today, she said. Though she used to be surprised when someone came into her office two years after graduation, she now has alumni visiting who walked the stage 22 years ago. Even with the right interviewing skills and a full résumé, students can benefit from thinking outside the box, she said. Many fall for the lure of big name companies and get dismayed when not hired, while a smaller company may offer an even larger salary.

She also sees, particularly at job fairs, the need for students to see their degree’s scope. For instance, accounting majors can apply anywhere because every company needs accountants, not just accounting firms. Also, government jobs are booming right now, and they also tend to offer better health benefits and 401(k) packages, she said. Some ignore this avenue, chasing the big name companies, she said. Many respondents to the NACE survey said they would enter the job market, despite the small hiring pool. But, more 2009 graduates expected to head to graduate school at the time of the spring survey — 26 percent compared to 24 percent in 2008 and 20 percent in 2007. Villagomez said she hopes graduates don’t pursue a higher degree just to wait out the storm. She would rather them concentrate on learning those soft skills. Overall, she advises students to not become distraught by such a fierce job market. “At the end of the day, this isn’t going to be the economy forever,” she said.

actions Behind words This senior wants to uncover criminal justice’s unresolved issues

The Shorthorn: rasy ran

Psychology senior Marcia Vasquez serves as parliamentarian for the 2009-10 Student Congress and plans to pursue a second bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. vasquez says she wants to specialize in forensic psychology at the University of California, irvine, to help people understand the inner workings of criminology.

By JoHnaTHan SilvER The Shorthorn staff

Graduating psychology senior Marcia Vasquez said she wants to use science to help understand crime. Vasquez, Student Congress parliamentarian for the 2009-10 academic year, said she enjoys making a difference. She worked with the Science Constituency Council, part of SC representing the College of Science, and consequentially met SC senators, who encouraged her to attend congress’ meetings. “After a few meetings, I had a strong urge to change things on campus,” Vasquez said. “Being active in Student Congress was the

way to get things done.” Vasquez said she gets strong support and motivation from family. Her father, a pre-trial officer and Dallas County chemical dependency counselor, encourages her to do her best. “My father is my inspiration,” she said. “He was the first child [of his family] to graduate from college. It seems that his passion is so amazing that it motivates me to seek helping people.” After graduation, Vasquez said she will pursue a second bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and plans to go to the University of California, Irvine, for graduate school. She said she wants to specialize in forensic psy-

chology and work in a setting focused on victimology and criminal profiling. She said more degrees are ideal to prepare her for a career with the federal government’s internal affairs, which is her ultimate goal. One of Vasquez’s passions is eyewitness testimony. “I have found that this type of testimony is not nearly as reliable as we have led ourselves to believe,” she said. “Within internal affairs, I hope to bring new light to the way criminals are prosecuted and sentenced based on eyewitness testimony.” The criminal justice system and politics as portrayed in the media leaves some questions unanswered, she said.

psychology and reasoning behind peoples’ actions will be part of Vasquez’s trade, she said. “I am an optimist and feel that there is so much more to be understood about crimes and the victims that these crimes are happening to,” Vasquez said. “I only want to be able to aid in the growth of understanding crime and the effect it has on the victim.”
