With your university years over, you are facing the end of your traditional education and the start of your career. You are done sitting through classes and handing in academic assignments. No more finals!

Resume writing, LinkedIn profiling, interview practicing, alumni outreaching, job board searching, cover letter writing. This career entry thing is hard work!
Has your institution done all it could to help them pursue the career and land the job?

What other resources are out there to help strengthen their profile and seal the deal?
