BETHLEHEM, PA — Want proof that it pays to get a jump on a job search? Students who began their job search early this year were rewarded for their early efforts, according to a new report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). At the time of NACE's 2007 Graduating Student Survey—conducted March 1 through April 30, 2007—71 percent of responding students either planned to or already had begun to look for a full-time job after graduation. Among those reporting that they had actively begun searching for a job, 79 percent already had submitted an application. And, of those students who submitted a job application, 51.2 percent had already accepted an offer for the job they would begin after graduation.
