3 Do you have what it takes to get your dream job? Take this quiz and you ll find out! The job search process has undergone dramatic changes in the past 4 years. Prior to the 2008 recession, it was relatively easy for grads to get jobs. But then 8,000,000 people were let go and a hiring slowdown has resulted in nearly 80 percent of graduates from the classes of 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 graduating from college without jobs. Many of the laid-off workers and grads are still competing for the roughly 150,000 positions filled each month. So with that much competition, are you prepared for your job search? Take this quiz to see if you are adopting the right skills and knowledge to help you get a job on graduation day. 3
