Career. Doesn’t that have a nice ring to it? While I am in the midst of papers, critiques, exams, and what seem to be useless classes, the word career sounds quite appealing. I mean, it is what we have all been working up to right? First elementary school, then the awkward years of middle school, and then high school. Lets pause there. High school graduation. You have now completed 13 YEARS of schooling. What an accomplishment, BUT WAIT, you aren’t done yet.
College. The institution that you seek farther education. Four years later, you can finally say you are ready for the professional world. But are you? I mean really? Do you know how to present yourself well in an interview? Is your resume’ lacking in different areas? What is going to make you stand out from thousands of others?
This is one of the most important things that you leave college with. I mean, you can know a lot, but if you can’t take the appropriate steps to get yourself a job, then your degree, your college education, has no use.
So, as a college student, it is important that we research what to do and what not to do while interviewing, creating a resume, and the “job hunt” in general.
While writing your resume it is important that you think about what the company is about, and what things that the organization would appreciate that you have been a part of. For example, if you are applying to work for a mission’s organization, you should highlight on missions experiences that you have been a part of or lead. Also, as a college student, your resume should only be about a page long. If you make it any longer than that, it will not get read.
