The biggest thing university fresh graduates fear is not getting a job at earliest convenience. The job market is highly competitive and the most paid ones are usually never vacant. Even if they are, they don’t hire university fresh graduates as if they are an alien species. Unless you plan to startup your own business and be an entrepreneur, there are certain steps you need to go through. Remember, it’s never only your academic results that define your career path but who you truly are as well. Before a face a viva voce on your job interview, let’s shed some light on what you should do beforehand.
1. Find out the Appropriate Job Offerings
Before you apply, make sure the application is being dropped in the right place. If your university major was in the CS, applying for a Human Resource position won’t get you any further. Some jobs require specific degrees for their departments while many other would just be okay with any graduates. Minutely go through the job posting and check if you can apply.
2. Take Additional Courses, Be Productive
University education is more like a user manual and jobs require that the employees know how the theories work in real life conditions. That’s not easy as it sounds; because the real world out there is nowhere near perfect like the theories you have ever studied. Diploma courses can get a university graduate the head start for their jobs. Practical courses would come very useful as they emphasize more on the actual job fields.
3. Extra-Curricular Activities
Get your face known to individuals from various job firms and companies. Having connections is considered as a very special virtue for any jobs out there. Extra-curricular activities can be very diverse in nature;l they could be arranged by some local organizations or maybe some international ones. Participate in relevant communities. For example if you are a business graduate, you should attend the seminars that discuss hiring people for a company or takes fresh ideas for campaigns. Participate in competitions where your potentials would be valued. Take part in social works as your contribution towards society is also important to the hiring companies. Bottom line is, don’t miss out any chance in life. Nothing you learn goes wasted.
4. Be a Netizen:
These days basic human needs include connectivity as well. Internet is currently the best form of connectivity and you need to indulge yourself into it. For studying, for conducting researches, for socializing or maybe just killing your time – internet can get you anything. However, like every great power this one has misusage potential as well. If you spend too much time on internet doing nothing productive (not bio-productive); you won’t reach anywhere.
5. Be Helpful to Others:
Don’t think helping others in your very same industry will get them through further advancements and not you. They might get over you but at the end of the day, it’s a new achievement to your leaderboard which might not be seen now but during a later assessment. Helping out people indirectly means helping yourself as you get to know your boundaries and limits and can figure out your life goals that way.
These 5 tasks should be embedded in a fresh university graduates to get jobs faster. It takes a practically well-known of their university degree ‘human being’ to get a job faster and shine and rise. Be the one who not only knows the theory well but have excellent knowledge on the practical stuff, and also a worthy ‘human being’ to any team.
