Want a job?? 4 Things You Must Do Before Graduating:
Part 1 of 4:
Volunteer in the field where you intend to work.
You’re approaching graduation, you’ve made good grades, maybe you have a part-time job or a summer job that you’re planning to return to until you find your career job. Does this sound like you? If it does, keep reading!
A lot of students graduate with little to no hands-on experience in the field they have pursued through post-secondary education. Utilize this summer as your opportunity to start networking and gain the practical work experience that all employers are looking for. You have spent a lot of money and time earning the qualifications for the job, now is your opportunity to show you can do the job. It’s a lot easier to find a volunteer position than the salary job you’re expecting will find you.
You have the rest of your life to make money.
This summer is your opportunity to learn about your career, develop connections with employers, and acquire a working knowledge of your industry that is priceless.
