If going through College is hard enough, life after College is much harder. Based on a study made by the Georgetown university, in 2016 the number of college graduates who are unemployed was 6.2%. This is not a huge number but still, it is still a significant number of people who can't find a good job after toiling for years in the university. Therefore, these are the best methods, according to experts, to land a good, decent job fresh out of college.
Create a vast web of networks and explore
This is according to Forbes magazine, the most important thing to do right after college is to slowly create a web of networks. A student can easily do this on the internet, using social media site and other services such as LinkedIn, but one should not solely rely on the internet. Newly grads should also stretch their legs and visit job bazaars, and even talk to neighbors, old acquaintance and people who may have links to companies and such.
Create an awesome resume
There are many people who would pay money just to make their resumes prim and proper. This is because there are a lot of people who are opting for that position and the resume that really stands out would get noticed quite quickly. As stated by Careermine, listing all accomplishments on paper is not enough to entice the client, especially if there are others who have more credentials. However, if a resume is attractive and eye-catching, in a professional way, then a newly grad can have an edge.
Never be afraid to test the waters
Careers sometimes do not dictate what job one will have. A college degree will just guide a newly grad on where he or she has a higher probability of getting hired. However, one must be open to jobs which are not linked, sometimes totally differ from one's degree. Most of the richest people today have degrees which are not related to what business they have that lifted them to success. So never be afraid to venture out of the nest, out of the comfort zone and find greener pastures beyond one's horizon.
