"Job seekers need to start marketing themselves based on the skills, competencies and traits employers need and value most," said Beth Tarquino, Chief Academic Officer at Bryant & Stratton College. "Too often the background experience and soft-skills attributes needed to successfully look for a job are underestimated, especially by college students and new graduates. Searching for a job can become a fulltime job, but putting in the extra work to understand hiring trends and needs of employers is worth it."
