When graduating the university, every former student thinks that the worst part of life is behind. In reality, this is just the beginning of all the challenges. And the first challenge every person meets is finding a job after graduating. The matter is that everyone wants to find a good job with a good salary and perspective of career growth. However, only some individuals are lucky enough to get the job of their dream after the first interview. Most of us can not land the dream job during our whole career lives. But does only luck determines individuals who get the desired job? Of course, it’s not only luck. There are other multiple factors that influence your life just right after the graduation and you need to use all of them to your benefit. Note that you need to prepare for a good career in advance (while still being a student), so even if you are a freshman you can already do something that will help you in your further life.
Strong life position
Have you ever thought why some people get everything they want while other people get nothing? The matter is that some people have a strong life position, clearly determined objectives, and always know exactly what they want. Besides, they know what they need to do to reach the settled goals. There are also people who are always dreaming about some achievements but do nothing to reach them.
Strong life position determines a person’s attitude to what they do. Moreover, it helps a person get the desired meeting with a representative of a company and demonstrate the required qualities during the interview. Do not hesitate to include your achievements in a social field to your CV, especially if they show how active you are. Solving problems, participation in volunteer organizations, assisting at university or college, or having a part-time job demonstrate your potential employer that in spite of your age, you already understand the importance of time and know how to set proper goals.
Today, no one needs passive employees who go to work just to earn money. A person should be motivated and the motivation should come from the person themselves.
Good university achievements
They say that education does not have importance in achieving success. In fact, the education is not enough to achieve success, but it is one of the determining parts of your life. When you study at a college or university, you discover a totally new world for yourself, where you are the only one responsible for your results. If you pay enough effort, you get high grades and receive the appreciation of your professors. You can even get sponsorship for doing some research and make your studying the first step in your career.
Studying itself makes you more prepared for the adult life. For example, most of the companies require the ability to maintain correspondence with existing clients from new employees. In order to succeed in that, it is not enough just to know how to use emails. You need to be good in writing in a strong and effective manner. Students get used to writing term papers, and later they actually have almost no problems with presenting their thoughts in written form. Moreover, former students are generally good with presentations, and advanced oratory skills are frequently required for the best job positions.
Self-education and desire to study
It does not matter how many years of experience you have, five or none. If you do not use self-education opportunities and do not demonstrate desire to study, the employer will never get interested in your CV. Today, the university degree is not enough to impress an employer. You need to keep working on your skills and education even after you get a diploma. If you are still a student, you can change the attitude of your potential employers even now. Visit special workshops and training courses related to your major, and study foreign languages. Every employer will be interested in inviting for an interview a person who uses the available time properly, spending it to boost the personal growth, not to visit pubs and clubs.
Of course, if you just graduated the university or are preparing to do that, you need to compose an effective CV that will attract the attention of employers. Find your strong points and include them to your personal characteristics. If you have always been good at writing, do not forget to mention that you have a strong command of writing and correspondence. Moreover, add the information about all languages you speak and do not forget to include your previous achievements. The least but not last – do not be afraid to send your CV or even call to the companies where you would like to work. Use strong life position to find the job of your dream!
