Hello everyone, its me again yay! I’m back with a new blog post for you guys. In today’s post I shall be discussing something which is more ‘business’ related if you like. That is: The Guide to Getting a Job After You Graduate. If your confused on what you need to do after you graduate or need further assistance, carry on reading to find out more.
Talk to people about their jobs.
The best thing about going into a job is that you know what the job role requires you to do. Isn’t it a good idea to talk to people who have the same, if not similar jobs? You are going to be spending years in that profession and you don’t want to make the mistake of going into a job and regretting it afterwards. Ask individuals if they are open to a quick conversation.
Listen to your college professors and tutors.
They want what’s best for you after all and most of the time their advice is the best advice. Have you asked them for feedback at what your strengths and weaknesses are? Take notes, have regular meetings and thank the person for giving you their valuable time.
Identify job roles which interest you.
Take jobs into consideration which you know your skills and background will fit well into. You know your abilities and prior experience relates to. Moreover you need to see yourself succeeding at that job and only moving up that employment ladder. You see a good future with the organisation.
Craft you application.
Think of your application as chapters of your story which you are providing to potential employers. You want your story to represent you best. Demonstrate how your experiences and skills will make you thrive in the demands of the job. You don’t need a fancy job or internship to show that your capable of working to the best possible standard.
Check spelling, grammar and syntax.
Before you submit an application, be sure to check for common mistakes that could cost you a job. We all know someone who has a good eye for identifying mistakes so get them to proof read your application and make the most from it. Don’t let grammatical errors be the reason why you don’t get that dream job.
Research/do your homework.
The way you researched different universities you were interested in attending, the same rule applies for jobs. Do you know how the company makes its money? How the company is organised? Do you follow the company’s social media channels so you understand how they have positioned themselves in the market? If you expect the company to invest in you, you need to invest in them.
Accept/negotiate a job offer that is right for you.
If you have got your dream job, congratulations! All that hard work paid off in the end. Thank the company and begin your career working in that profession. If your unsure, review the material again and ask the company questions which you have in mind. You want to ask questions which are insightful, thoughtful and reflect important things which matter to you. If the company isn’t right for you, then look again. The world is full of opportunities.
I hope you feel more prepared than you once were about getting the right job. The key is to invest time into the process because this will shape your entire career and help build your future.
