How long before graduating should I start applying for jobs?
I was wondering, when should I start applying for jobs? I graduate March 10, 2012.. :-)) I have seen many local jobs in my field of Criminal Justice and many of the job listings don't have a start date, and I don't want to be like "Oh, sorry, I can't take the job yet cause I won't graduate until March" and then lose the opportunity. So, according to your experience as either employers or employees, what would be a good time for me to start job hunting? Thanks! XOXO :-))

You need to start looking about 6 months before you graduate. That is, today. Employers understand about grads not being available until their graduation date.
