Some University of Colorado seniors have been on the job hunt all year.

Others are just getting started.

No matter what their progress, most graduating seniors are taking the day off from the search to celebrate at commencement.

But after a weekend of graduation parties, many new graduates will hit the ground running in hopes of getting a job, if they weren’t able to secure something before the end of the school year.

We asked a few graduates how their job search was going so far.

ALEX FULTON

Senior, economics and mathematics

“I have an internship lined up for this summer at a life insurance company. Then I’ll move home and find a job after that.”

PAIGE NORTHWAY

Senior, engineering physics

“I’m planning to stay out of the workforce as long as possible by doing research and going to grad school.”

KAYLA CROSBIE

Senior, physics and math

“I’m going to grad school to get my Ph.D. in physics at Cornell. I’m postponing the job search for another seven or eight years that way.”

KAVITHA MURUGAN

Senior, integrative physiology

“I’ve been busy with the semester so I haven’t done a lot of job hunting yet. I’ll be working part-time in Boulder for a while and I’m applying for med school so that’s just temporary.”

TYLER WINGFIELD

Senior, engineering physics

“I haven’t started looking yet. I’m waiting until a job finds me.”
