Getting a job? Should be easy. You've got your qualification, so now you'll be offered a job - right? Not quite as easy as that though.
Just because you've got your qualification, don't think that employers are waiting for you outside the graduation hall. That may have been true once, but it isn't anymore.
Is there much competition? What about all those others who graduated with you? They're wanting the same job that you are. So how do you make yourself stand out from them?
And where are all the jobs anyway? According to recent statistics, the 10 fastest growing jobs in the US are in just a handful of industries. So first you've got to find a job to apply for. And that's what this page is all about.
First you have to find a job to apply for - and there might not be many around when you're looking. When you apply for a job, you will find that there are many others who have the same qualification as you. So how do you make yourself stand out from those others?
The first step is to find jobs that are available.
Don't expect to get your "ideal job" and don't expect to get the first job you apply for. You'll probably have to apply for many jobs so you'll need to find a lot of adverts for vacancies. To do this use multiple strategies. For example:
Whilst you are looking for a job that you are really interested in, make sure that you are doing something other than staying in bed late. Try to obtain a job part-time, take hourly work, do short term jobs, take short courses, do voluntary work - do anything that you can put on your CV to show that you are resourceful, can keep time, work in a team, engage with peers, know about the demands of the workplace and generally understand what work is all about.
The discipline required to get up and get to work on time everyday also does something for your mental condition as well - it keeps your brain sharper, working and alert. This is noticeable in interviews.
