Volunteer to Not Look Desperate
Job hunting, done right, can be a terrible, terrible lonely process, admitted by a job placement professional. So to get out of your head and score some real world cred (no need to note "volunteer" if work is legit), get a gig the easiest way – by working for free. You don't have to do it full-time, as you need to eat once in a while. But stories abound about how people have either turned these jobs into full-time gigs or met great contacts to get them ahead.
