MCI OFFERS FREE JOB SEARCH BROCHURE FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS; TELEPHONE TIPS AND PLANNING IDEAS INCLUDED

 WASHINGTON, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- College students and college graduates can now call a toll-free number to receive 60 tips on job-hunting. In order to make the sometimes agonizing search for employment a little easier, MCI has produced a free brochure filled with advice for the job seeker, "An Organized Approach To Getting A Job."
 Anyone interested in receiving the brochure can call MCI toll-free, 800-283-5617.
 The free 20-page spiralbound notebook offers practical advice and helpful tips including:
 HOW TO ASSESS INTERESTS AND SKILLS
 Determine what you like doing and then think about how these activities and personal interests can translate into a fulfilling career. Identify your strengths and determine the areas where skills match interests.
 HOW TO PLAN A JOB SEARCH
 Research the industry you are interested in entering. Maintain a directory of contacts, including dates of cover letters mailed and follow-up calls made. Keep a daily to-do list.
 HOW TO EFFECTIVELY USE THE TELEPHONE
 Networking on the telephone is an important first step in a job search. Contacting friends, family and previous employers is the best way to compile a directory of individuals who represent organizations in the industry of your choice.
 HOW TO PREPARE FOR JOB INTERVIEWS
 Learn as much as you can about the company before your appointment. Prepare a 30-40 word written "infomercial" addressing who you are, your employment goal and two or three reasons why your skills fit the job requirements. Spend some time before the interview anticipating questions and preparing your responses.

 -- MCI's Friends & Family program offers an additional 20 percent savings to customers who call other MCI customers in their Calling Circles.
