Re: employability

My top finance graduates have a job offer (or 3) during the fall semester of their senior year. It's never too early to start looking.

Re: employability

I agree that it is never too early to start looking. Informational interviews can be better than a job interview. A good informational interview requires the same preparation. The advantage is that in that setting you are interested in learning about what the job holder does, that is flattering. The second advantage is that you can learn what the job holder doesn't enjoy about their job, that can be revealing.

Re: employability

Do you still have a free summer left before graduation? If so, do an internship...I had a full-time offer in October 2003 to start in July 2004 based on my internship.
