The employment pressure on college students is a common problem in current society, which has a significant impact on their physical and mental health and development. This paper is based on positive psychology and explores strategies for alleviating employment pressure among college students, and evaluates their feasibility and effectiveness. Through research on relevant literature and empirical analysis, the paper found that strategies such as cultivating a positive mindset and optimistic emotions, enhancing self-awareness and self-control, establishing good interpersonal relationships and support systems, and cultivating adaptability and resilience can help college students better face employment pressure, maintain mental health, and promote personal growth. The implementation of a strategy based on positive psychology to alleviate employment pressure for college students is feasible and provides significant assistance to them. Therefore, the government, educational institutions, and all sectors of society should jointly pay attention to the employment issue of college students, strengthen the promotion and implementation of mitigation strategies based on positive psychology, provide comprehensive support and assistance for college students, and create a good employment environment and atmosphere.
