We won't lie: Your first job search, when you're graduating from college and competing with thousands of other new grads for the best jobs, isn't easy.
So we're bringing you a new secret weapon.
We've partnered with online education company Chegg to bring you an inside look into what hiring managers are really looking for in their entry-level hires. We sat down with recruiters, HR pros, and successful leaders at companies like Uber , Chartbeat , and iCracked and picked their brains about the skills they're looking for, the most common mistakes job seekers make , and the candidates who really shine.
What did we learn? Get a sneak peek with this video—a roundup of hiring managers' best advice on how to stand out in a crowded job market. Then, check out all of the research, even more video tips, and printable job search checklists at Chegg Pulse , a portal that pulls together everything you need to know about landing your dream job.
