Industries attending USD Career Expo

I’m disappointed that there weren't any advertising agencies at last Spring’s Career Expo. Can’t you get ad agencies to recruit on campus?

When should Spring graduates start applying for jobs?

My friend is an accounting major and she’s already started to apply for full-time jobs for when she graduates in the Spring. Is it too early to start looking for jobs now if I’m graduating in May?

What do I say about salary history?

I have two questions about salary history. First, what should I put in a cover letter when the job ad says to include salary history? Second, what if an employer asks me in an interview about my salary history? I’ve only had unpaid internships and I feel dumb saying “I have no salary history.”

Job postings that do not include company names

Why is it that many jobs I see posted on online job sites don’t name the company. Is this a scam? I’m not sure if I should respond to ads like these.
