Job Search Tips


These tips have been taken from Getting from College to Career by Lindsey Pollak.

Before you head off into the real world ...

There are a few more pieces of advice to heed before venturing out into the real world:

*Be willing to ask for help if it is needed. No one expects anyone else to have all the answers, so when in doubt, always speak up.

*Take time to get advice or feedback.

*Remember that finding happiness is a lifelong process that will almost certainly change several times, often in unexpected ways.

*Always meet new people, constantly develop new skills, and pursue interests.

*Explore.

*Never forget about enthusiasm. Do not be afraid to display passion or be successful.
