Getting a job in general isn’t an easy task-and it’s even harder when you’re leaving college without a ton of experience.
You know how you have that one fear that pops up every now and then? Like when you are taking a shower or on public transportation?
This is mine.
Michelle from Take Care Package wrote an AMAZINGLY helpful post below on how to get a job after college-since, you know, I’m still in college and don’t know how to navigate that part yet. She’s great-make sure to go give her social media some love at the end of this post and check out her business!
Congratulations!! You’ve put in years of dedicated hard work to get that degree, and now you’ve finally secured it (or are close to doing so). Having that coveted designation will help your chances of getting a professional gig. But how do you actually get that job after you fist bump the dean at graduation?
I graduated in 2003 with a BS in Mathematics. Everyone told me how great that was because math can be challenging. I was too shy to teach, and I didn’t know what else to do with my degree. So I spent way too long working as a waitress before applying to jobs that could turn into my career.
A lot of people will be offering you advice on getting into the job market, so listen to it all and take away what you think is relevant to you. To pile onto those advice givers, here are my two cents on how to secure a solid job that I wish I had heard before jumping in. I hope this helps you to be efficient and successful!!
