I hope that you got everything that you wanted for Christmas, but I’ll guess that you probably didn’t find a shiny new entry level job under the tree. Our soon to be released job search training course is almost as good, and someone can actually legitimately give it to you as a gift. We won’t be giving it to you as a present (your parents can do that), but here’s another recap of current opportunities with companies that we’ve featured in the past. In case you missed them, here are links to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of our end of the year recap.
Shamrock Boats: There’s even less information about jobs with Shamrock Boats than there was when we first posted about them.
Federal Reserve Board: Although the Fed seems to do most of their entry level hiring through college recruiting in the Fall, they still appear to have a ton of Analyst jobs available for new grads. The current economic conditions mean a lot of work for the Fed, so it’s good to know that they’re hiring.
Xenith: The manufacturer of high-tech football helmets doesn’t have any job openings, but they still would love to hear from you if you’re interested in a job with them.
CBSSports.com: Finding open jobs with CBSSports.com is a hassle – they direct you to another site that doesn’t even appear to have their jobs listed. We recommend that you just try cold calling/e-mailing your resume.
Just Born Quality Confections: The maker of Marshmallow Peeps has a new Careers page, but only one job listed. It’s an Assistant Brand Manager position, which, unfortunately, requires three years of experience.
YardBarker: There aren’t any job openings posted on YardBarker’s site, but they do invite you to send a resume.
Gilt Groupe: This has been our most popular post in terms of comments (maybe because we’re giving away free invites). There must be a lot of interest in their jobs too, though. Current entry level opportunities include Interaction & Usability Designer, Merchandise Assistant, and Merchandise Product Coordinator.
American Express: They’re finally getting their act together when it comes to their online college recruiting presence. The user experience has certainly improved – it’s now easy to see which positions they fill with entry level hires.
Targetcast tcm.: No jobs listed, you’ll have to send your resume to the e-mail address listed.
Clif Bar & Company: There are a couple of Sales jobs that will provide you with all of the Clif Bars that you can eat.
Motley Fool: There are three foolish jobs available that might interest new grads – Writer/Analyst, Community Analyst, and Front End Web Developer.
Burt’s Bees: Maybe the reason they make such great lip balm is because they hire such experienced people. No entry level jobs right now.
PBwiki: Finding entry level jobs with PBwiki is still as easy as making a peanut butter sandwich. They have opportunities in Web Design and Sales.
PostWorks: PA/Client Services, Junior Avid Engineer, and Scheduler are just a few of the entry level jobs that you can get at PostWorks to break into the world of production.
Standard Style Boutique: It’s not clear that they have open positions, but Standard Style lists a ton of areas in which you can submit a resume.
Etsy: Etsy looks like a very cool place to work, and is a very cool place to buy unique stuff. They have quite a few jobs that might appeal to new grads, but you need to have a web/tech background.
Google: The word is that Google has cut back on hiring, and their campus recruiting schedule is over. It’s probably not the best time to get into the Googleplex, but they do still have quite a few jobs posted.
Cheezhead: I doubt that the Cheez is hiring right now. Although, he’s certainly been putting his new hire to work. She’s blogging up a storm.
Mars & Co.: Nothing seems to have changed when it comes to the hiring process at Mars & Co.
Orvis: There are no job openings at Orvis’ corporate headquarter in Vermont, nor in their Service Center in Virginia.
Cannondale Associates: The college recruiting process with Cannondale seems to be exactly the same as it was when we last checked in.
Gallup: Gallup isn’t in the news every day now that the election is over; however, they haven’t used the free time to make it easier to find entry level jobs. Their Campus Recruiting Site is still excellent, but it dumps you into the regular job listings eventually. It’s up to you to browse through the 98 openings for something that is of interest to you.
Digg: Digg is still growing fast and hiring lots of people with web backgrounds.
Sun Microsystems: A quick search for entry level jobs on Sun’s site turns up 80 results, so you should have a lot of options there.
Vineyard Vines: I wore a Vineyard Vines tie to church on Christmas, and maybe you can design the one I wear next year. They have an entry level apparel design opportunity as well as one in graphic design.
DailyLit: For all of you who love reading, but are fine with doing it on the screen, there are jobs as an Editorial Assistant and Software Developer available with DailyLit.
Rumsey Engineers: Rumsey’s current job openings look to be geared towards people with more experience, but they still might be worth looking at if you’re an engineer with an interest in energy efficiency.
CustomInk: CustomInk isn’t hiring right now.
Recapping non-profits tomorrow!
