Be aggressive. It's not easy trying to find a job on his own ...


especially a first job. If he doesn't have any "in" to get his resume in front of the right people ... he has to be aggressive. Usually, lower level jobs go through HR first. He needs to make an impression on that recruiter if he doesn't know people in that company.

He shouldn't be discouraged. Everyone gets rejected a ton when they apply for their first job after college.

I don't know much about chemistry, but he needs to be open to almost any job that gets him in the door. Once you get their attention, other companies become more interested.
