How early should a future college grad start job hunting?
I am going to be graduating from College in May, and was wondering when would be a good time to start my job search and start sending resumes to companies. How far in advance do most companies hire employees? I don't want to waste the time of recruiters by sending out my resumes in December if they don't typically start thinking about June hires until April.

The year you graduate and sometimes, even before you enter college. Some companies will pay for school if you agree to work for them when you graduate.
