Nowadays, what worries college students most should be the balance between job hunting and study. Have you noticed the phenomenon that the competition in job market is much fierce than before and the unemployment rate of college students is of a high level, which is given rise to the reason that a growing number of graduates are pouring into society whereas job opportunities are simply not enough for them.
Owing to the severe situation, enormous undergraduates set about looking for a job long before their graduation. Some even begin when they enter college. However, each coin has two sides. The offenders hold the opinion that applying for a job can undoubtedly cut down undergraduates' study time, considering that their main work is to learn academic knowledge as much as possible. While supporters believe that applying for a job earlier can secure a better job after graduation. On my personal perspective, opportunities favor those who are well prepared. Both sparing no effort to study and applying for a job earlier can eventually serve to our better job in the future on condition that we balance the two parts reasonably.
What's more, lots of factors are taken into consideration when recruiting new employees, work experience, degree, ability and so on, of which I think the most important is study. Although it cannot be judged from the academic grades whether a person is of high ability, it is at least a proof that one has a large scope of academic knowledge. Generally speaking, job hunting is not contradictory with study; in contrast, they can coordinate with each other perfectly.
