My advice it to hit the job boards hard, there are tons of high paying jobs posted:

http://www.linkedin.com (networking for professionals)
http://www.indeed.com (aggregated listings)
http://www.realmatch.com (matches you to the perfect job)

There is a perfect job out there for everone!

This article, from my perspective is very factual but not only for MBAs but for other disciplines as well.

I work for Wall Street Survivor, a fantasy stock market game, and we have see an increase of students registering for our University Investment Club Contest. They state that they want to have a better understanding of finance and the market. This is what we offer.... at no risks!

Looking forward to reading more in the future.

Absolutely the present economy has and will make it tough for prospective graduates looking for the work they want when the graduate.

The problem for most of these graduates is that they are unsure of what steps they need to take to get the jobs they want. Checking postings on-line is definitely a fast and easy way to see what is out there.

However, many jobs never make it to the posting boards and those that do are flooded with applications so it is tough to stand out in a crowd of electronic resumes.

As mentioned above, using job fairs is a great way to get yourself in front of many prosepctive employers in a short period of time and gives you the added bonus of being able to leave a lasting face-to-face impression on potential recruiters.

Too many people simply post their resume or look on-line and don't get out and do the foot work required to get themselves a really great job that suits them.
