November is just another regular month, part of a regular year. Nothing to see here...

If you haven't been applying for jobs, but want to start -  bookmark and check Handshake regularly. As of this writing, it is THE employer portal. 
Have you ever applied to a position and not been selected? Are you wondering why? Keep your eye out for an opportunity to hear feedback on applications, and ways to separate yourself from the crowd - directly from an employer.
