Posted by Willy Franzen on April 21, 2008. Jobs updated daily.
We’re still finding tons of great entry-level jobs for those of you who are in the process of figuring out what you’re doing after graduation, but we’ve decided to take a slightly different approach to our postings for this week. Instead of telling you about one new company every day, we’re going to go back in our archives and revisit many of the companies that we’ve already featured. We’re going to tell you who is still hiring new grads, and who isn’t. We’re also going to clean up any broken links on old posts, and make some other improvements in the way our job archives are organized.
Hopefully you’ll like this idea, but if you think it’s stupid, let us know in the comments. If most of you just want to hear about new companies, then we’ll be more than happy to do less revisiting, and more new research.
InsideTrack: They still have positions as Success Coaches and Enrollment Coaches. These were posted as recently as April 1st.
Iconoculture: They have positions as Cultural Fluents in China, India, Italy, Indonesia, and Canada. These aren’t full time jobs, but they’re a cool thing to do if you’re living abroad.
WildCharge: WildCharge still isn’t listing specific jobs; however, they are interested in Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Program managers for their Boulder, CO office. They also are always looking for Product managers and Business development managers for their Scottsdale, AZ office.
Gorilla Nation Media: Gorilla Nation is still growing and still hiring. Right now they have these positions open: Human Resources Coordinator, PHP Developer, Online Ad Trafficker, and Python Developer.
GEICO: GEICO continues to make great commercials and continues hiring at the entry-level. We’re disappointed to see that they’ve gotten rid of the best part of their Jobs site – the little green EL icons next to their entry-level positions. That is a bummer, but their College Recruiting page is still excellent, and it will feed you right into the appropriate job openings.
WET Design: They still have the same list of current job opportunities that they did when we featured them, so that means that they probably don’t update it. This is a really cool company for engineers and design students, so it’s worth taking a look at anyways.
J.P. Franzen Associates Architects: I just had to do a post for my Dad’s company when things were just getting started. He’s not sure if he’s still hiring, but if you’re a star architecture student, he’d definitely be interested in hearing from you.
Ryan Partnership: There appear to be a ton of openings, although we’re not sure how up to date they are. The best bet still seems to be e-mailing Ryan Partnership and letting them know that you’re a soon to be grad who is looking for a job in Marketing.
Plimoth Plantation and Colonial Williamsburg: This was not an entirely serious post, as it was published on Thanksgiving Day; however, these types of jobs still might interest a few of you. Plimoth Plantation doesn’t appear to have any “Living History” jobs open, but Colonial Williamsburg has quite a few.
Amazon.com: Amazon has quite a few openings in their entry-level hiring programs. Areas include: Human Resources, Area Management, and Software Development.
LECG: They’re a unique consulting firm, with a heavy emphasis on research. They’re hiring a ton of Research Analysts right now.
CNN: New Video Journalist positions have been posted as recently as April 10th, but CNN’s job search site is still a pain in the butt to use. It wouldn’t even work with Safari.
IDEO: They were never huge on entry-level hiring, but they do offer quite a few internships. Judging from what we know about IDEO, these internships are probably good choices for a new grad. You can also look around and see if you can meet any of the requirements for the full time job openings. They’re not the types to turn you down because of what is or isn’t on your resume.
Zillow.com: Most of their current openings require experience, but a software development star might be able to find a good fit.
Under Armour: None of their opening scream entry-level at us, as most of them require at least a few years of experience. If you absolutely love Sports Apparel, take a look at their openings and see if there’s anything that you can talk your way into.
That’s it for today, we’ll be revisiting more companies tomorrow!
