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.

You should be looking into interning while your finishing up your last classes in college. That way when you graduate you will already have on the job experience to go along with your degree.

Start now, that way there's no hurry and hopefully you'll have plenty of places to choose from. Best of luck to you.

Start now and apply for internships so that you already have your foot in the door when you graduate.

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.
