First off Congratulations!!! whoop whoop…
Graduation is one of the most important moments in one’s life, there’s no doubt about it. Since your childhood, you keep hearing your parents that performing well in school will help you build a bright future. From elementary school, they have been pushing you to be a good student and get to college. Once you entered college, their primary goal was to see you successfully graduate. But, now that this happened, after seeing their thrilled faces that their child finally made it, they suddenly relax and move onward. So, is that it? They’ve accomplished their primary purpose of getting you here and now what?
Well, dear college graduate, now life is entirely in your hands. Most parents would do anything to see their children graduate, so once they do, they consider their mission completed, considering that you have the knowledge package you need to start your life on your own. With other words, it may be time to get a job and move out of your parental house, because you are a grown up already.
Yes, you will require time to adjust to the new status, but meanwhile, scout the job market and start sending a nicely made resume to the companies that are in your range of interest. Most probably, now that you graduated, your parents will slowly turn off your usually financial resources, considering that it is time to produce your own.
So, because it is rather difficult to get a job in a short period, it would be wise to start as soon as possible.
But what do you do if you can’t find a job in your area of expertise? After all, you did finish college and got a certain degree Kudos to your success! Well, we all agree with this and we know that in the ideal case a college graduate manages to find a job that is connected with his or her school preparation.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t apply in every case.
If you want to have a job and be financially independent as soon as possible, you will have to decide what kind of jobs you can take, others than the ones in your area of expertise.
Here are 7 Tips to keep guiding you along the way.
1. You will have to be resourceful and take advantage of any opportunity that comes your way, especially if it sounds attractive or doable.
2. Your first job may not be your dream job, but it is important to start somewhere.
Many employers demand experience, which you won’t have if you don’t start working.
3. Once you entered the work field, it will be easier to evolve in the desired direction.
4. Whatever you do, try to be the best at what you’re doing, and you will be noticed.
5. The people that work hard and do their best to deliver high-quality results are always appreciated and will enjoy many opportunities during their careers.
6. Also, do not forget to continuously invest in your self-development.
7. If possible and whenever possible, take courses, training sessions, attend to conferences and various events that will have a positive impact on your improvement and get you higher on the hierarchic ladder. Network, Network, & continue to Network…
p.s. “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
