As much as clearing campus is met with an array of exciting opportunities, most often than not, over 60% of graduates will get stuck in their first or second jobs while languishing in mediocre careers and doing very little to move forward. But you can easily change this by putting the tips into consideration.
Nothing great has ever been achieved without a passionate mindset. It doesn’t whether you love your current job or not, stay focused on your dreams and career goals. In fact, you’ll notice that a lot of people today are ambitious and have great, definite plans for their future. What most people lack is the passion and willingness to put in the extra hard work even when everything else looks bleak.
If you have just graduated college then chances are your closest friends are simply your former classmates or drinking buddies. Whom, of course, can’t help you much as far as advancing your career is concerned. That’s why it is advisable to build new relationships with seasoned professionals as soon as you walk out of college. Not only will you benefit from their valuable experience, but they can also recommend you to employers whom they know personally.
Additionally, expanding your network exposes you more to newer opportunities that may not have been accessible without the same connections.
If you studied engineering in college, then spice up your technical knowledge with a short first-aid or computer programming course. By now you already know that HR professionals have a soft spot for all round, talented individuals. And one way of displaying this is by painting a picture that you’re more knowledgeable than your peers. However, make sure that the new skill learned is relevant to your career or at least fits in your dream career journey.
