In school, when do you learn how to get a job? Be Employed When You Graduate outlines the simple steps you need to take while you’re a student not only to get a job, but start a rewarding career. Getting a job is as much a learned skill as anything else. But most schools don’t provide this important knowledge as part of the formal curriculum. Be Employed When You Graduate will help you get your money’s worth, no matter where you go to school.
Through the short chapters and included exercises, you will learn everything you need including how to pick a major, how to efficiently move through the university system, how to prepare a résumé and take control of your online presence, how to network and find job openings, how to ace the interview, and how to negotiate that first job offer. You’ll also learn how to supplement your income, and what to consider when it comes to graduate school.
Remember, you don’t need to master these skills. You just need to be better than your competition. Even running through the exercises once in this book will get you closer to your dream job! At some point, you’re going to have to pay back those student loans. So take the small steps now to make the most of your four, five – or more –years as an undergrad!
