      Here is some advice for job hunting. When considering any job, it can
      be helpful to have informational interviews with people who work at
      your target organization to find out what it is like to work there,
      and what it takes to get through the hiring process.

      LinkedIn is a service which allows you to search through the profiles
      of over 4.2 million professionals worldwide. With a basic free
      account, you can contact many of these people to get an inside
      connection at organizations in which you are interested. Anyone can
      join at LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com .

      On top of the basic free service available to everyone, SJSU sponsors
      a LinkedIn Group for SJSU alumni, which appears to be open to those
      nearing graduation as well. This LinkedIn Group enables you to
      directly access almost 400 alumni. To sign up, go to
      http://www.sjsu.edu/alumni/membership/benefits/careerplanning/

      LinkedIn is a great tool for strengthening student and alumni
      connections to help each other out, whether you use it for job
      hunting, finding business contacts, offering your services, etc.

      If you would like to learn more about how to grow your professional
