In our part of the country, our local LEAs have job fairs in the spring of the year which allows spring graduates to come and meet potential employers face to face. Many a grad has been hired that way. How about your part of the country?
I got an internship by going to a job fair at my school. Seeing as a job fair doesn't take long to get through, they are for sure worth going to. It can never hurt to meet a potential employer face-to-face.
