College Students Use Their Winter Break To Gain A Competitive Edge In Their Job Search

MILWAUKEE, WI--December 28,, the #1 entry level job site, today released its survey results on what college students plan to do over their winter break. Over 70% of those polled plan to use their break searching for a job.

Many college seniors are finding that winter break is the perfect opportunity to get a jump start on their job search. "In the current competitive job market, it's vital that students dedicate every available moment of their Senior year to their job search," said Brian Krueger, President of, "and winter break provides uninterrupted time away from the hectic senior schedule for students to focus on finding their post-graduation job."

No longer a time to lounge in front of the TV for days on end, winter break has become an essential step along the way to early job search success. Krueger pointed out, "Not only will they have a head start on fellow students, but with an accepted offer and their job search behind them, Seniors will be able to focus on finishing strong, without worrying about what they will do after graduation."

"It's never too early to begin your job search," reminds Krueger. "While some students choose to go on vacation and just take a break, now is the best time for job seekers to take advantage of those spare moments while on break to focus on their job search."
