How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"The program offered job placement with shaw construction once completed so it was pretty straight forward."
"I knew I wanted to get to work relatively quickly. I talked to maybe a half dozen potential employers before I picked or more accurately, was picked for the right position. I received two low-ball offers, one offer that was almost slave wage and one that required me to commute much too far everyday, then I got lucky and got in with a good team."
