How to Prepare College Students for a Career

Students in colleges aspire to pass their courses and graduate, then afterwards to find their
dream job, travel, have adventures and eventually settle down for a happy life. The reality,
however, is far less direct than this statement would imply. You are likely to meet college
graduates who have not managed to find the job they have desired for a long time and others
that have completely changed their careers, losing years as they relaunch in a different sector.
The main cause is insufficient career preparation while they are in school.

Both the student and professors have the responsibility to prepare the graduates to know how to
find a job after college. Today we want to look at what can really help you regarding career
planning for college students. Learn more here about getting the most out of your education. You
have the potential to find the best jobs on the market that you can even enjoy if you prepare

Here are the five good tips to follow when building your career plan:

1. Participate in Work-Based Learning:

Most Universities have the option of working for professors or with associates in industry, either
as summer jobs or throughout the academic year. These experiences can really help you later
when writing resumes/CVs for your field. These positions enable students to make a living while
completing their education. This caters not just to your finances, but also to your future goals!
If you can, avoid minimum-wage, low-skill jobs as a student. They won’t help you on your
resume in 10 years!

Avoid being misused just because you have not graduated yet. To build experience for the
career you want, you need to find jobs related to your major and job goal while you are in
school. An example is if you are studying to become a tech developer, you should start by
getting a job in a computer store with software related services. The exposure makes you stand
out when you graduate from college.

2. Expand Your Knowledge:

There are many subjects and courses offered in colleges. Many students choose what they
want to be and disregard the rest. When you want to know how to choose a career, keeping
away from other subjects in college is risky. You will need them in the future after graduation,
they always give you insight. It is better to pay attention and seek new knowledge rather than
discarding any academic opportunity.

Prospective employers will gladly take you if you have knowledge in a wider range of
interrelated fields they may need in their companies. For instance, if you are planning to
become a software developer, it is ideal to learn how to develop websites as well.

3. Find and Participate in Job Shadowing Positions:

Job shadowing is when you visit a business to observe how they run. You can see the
responsibilities of one more job positions of a real business in any field of study you are
interested in. You will learn the basics of a job, the challenges, and the potential. The time you
can have to learn this depends on how long the business owners are willing to welcome you.
Job shadowing allows you to make a sound decision as to what career you should settle for.
When you know what a real job in the business world is like, you will have a better idea of how
to find a job after college.

4. Be Wise with Internships:

The internships help the students get hands-on experience with a real job while they are still
advancing towards graduation. However, some students don’t get the opportunity to intern at a
place that actually helps them with their career goals. It is sad to acknowledge that companies
may take you for an internship and offer you a job that is outside your career plan.
If this happens, you need to make changes. Find something that will help you with your career preparation.
Even if it means that you have to work long hours, it is better. An instant assignment help service (UK)
can help you write your assignments while you get your hands on the career you are aspiring towards.

5. Stay Updated:

Are you able to discuss the latest developments in the industry of your choice? In the effort to
innovate, new technology, discoveries and methods tend to play a significant role in most
business. For any graduate to land a job that fulfills their desires, they need to ensure that they’re
up-to-date with all the aspects in their industry.
Current college students are privy to all the big new tech trends and innovation. Older
employees out there understand industry developments, but are often a bit outdated in tech and
research. Learning to stand out from the majority of graduates is a primary goal in your career
Instead of relying just on the knowledge you get from your lectures and textbooks, you need to
take time to learn about the industry trends in your career path. Universities have professional
journals released every month for various industry subjects. You need to read as much as
possible and discuss this knowledge with your professors and colleagues to get ahead with your
career preparation!

5 Ways to Face Mistakes at Work

This entry was posted in Articles, Working life and tagged , on by María Aragón.

Making mistakes at work is not the end of the world, the problem comes when you’re unsure of how to manage them. In one of my favourite quotes, Robert Kiyosaki perfectly sums up what it means to make a mistake: “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn”.

Facing Mistakes at Work

If managing mistakes at work is something new to you, we’ve got some tips on how to see your mistakes as something positive and productive!

5 ways to learn from your mistakes and move on

list_okRecognise the mistake and learn from it!
We’re expected to be honest at work, not perfect. Managing a mistake is a key moment for showing our honesty and capacity for reaction. Assuming our blame for the mistake (not stepping up an admitting the mistake is like using petrol to put out a fire), detecting its origin and assessing the consequences will help us to deal with the obstacle.

list_okFind solutions and if necessary, help. If we simply report the mistake, we send this message: “I put my foot in the mess but I don’t know how to clean it up. Let someone else come and solve it.” This doesn’t say a lot about our emotional intelligence. To the contrary, if we report a mistake and we propose duly-researched solutions, we are showing our capacity for assuming responsibilities and adapting to unexpected circumstances.
