any job search tips that would help me?
I am going to complete my Ugrad degree in Economics with 2 minors in Pol Sci and Mathematics. I've been having a hard time in finding a decent job despite my skills. Im looking for jobs in the field of Finance- Securities/ Investment Firms, Brokerage Firms, Etc. My GPA is not top notch- a 3.37, but it's not bad either. I've had several interviews so far and although i've heard back from some companies, those were the jobs that i did not really want. I've worked in a Law Firm before and i've also worked as a teaching Assistant/ tutor for elementary/ middle school kids. Is there any way that I can make myself more marketable? Any tips for job interviews/ job search?
