Job Search Perspectives and Experiences of a 2017 Graduate

In 270 applications and 7 months of interviewing to land a job as a new grad, Vincent Yeh, a June 2017 graduate of University of California, Davis details his job search journey that ultimately led to his obtaining a Software Engineering position at Apple. Of particular note is his experience that “… reaching out to a real person, even if you don’t know them, has a higher probability of turning an application into an interview versus simply applying through their websites” – the power of networking!
