Tandym Group’s Glenn Bernstein Featured on CBS

New York, May 2014 – On Monday, Glenn Bernstein, Chief Operating Officer of Tandym Group’s Temporary Staffing division, was featured in a CBS News segment on the state of the job market for new grads. The segment covered a press conference Senator Chuck Schumer held at Hofstra University to cover the imbalance of student debt and interest rates to the likelihood that they’ll get a job after graduation. The segment then turned to Glenn for insight on job market trends and what they mean for recent or soon-to-be grads.

According to Glenn, there are still opportunities for new graduates in a number of fields. “Healthcare, specifically,” he said. “We see a lot in the information technology area. Digital media is a popular area right now. So there are jobs available; there’s just more competition for them.”

To stand out against the competition, Glenn’s advice for students is to begin the job search well before senior year and to think outside of the box when it comes to your search. Connections are key, so students should begin making new business and industry relationships through social media, internships, and networking early on in their college years.
