Transitioning Into Adulthood

9 Oct


Here I am just 65 days from walking down the aisle to receive my piece of paper saying that I graduated college! While this is a very exciting time in my life, I am also starting to stress and worry a little about what’s to come. I am now entering the phase where you begin applying for “big girl” jobs. I have been reading a lot of helpful tips and I had a mock interview to better prepare myself, but I’d say this is no easy task for anyone.

I stumbled upon a helpful article that I think highlights key factors in having a successful job search. Check out these Job Hunting Tips.

Here are a few strategies to keep in mind:

1. Plan ahead and spend at least an hour or more per day preparing. If you fail to plan, plan to fail.

2. Utilize as many resources as possible.

3.  Network, Network, Network. Life is all about who you know sometimes!

4. Be confident. Go directly to employers and show them you want the job.

5. Be persistent. Do a follow up call or email to let them know you are interested.

6. Know yourself and what your strengths and weaknesses are.

There are so many things to keep in mind when considering a career and your future, but I think with a little determination and a few other things, you can go pretty far!

    Great points. From my experience thus far, planning is definitely super important. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is also important, IMO, so you can tell employers how you’ve improved on your weaknesses and stuff like that. Good luck and look forward to reading more!

      Thank you! I agree, It’s crucial to be able to admit your strengths and weaknesses to someone in order to show that you have actually assessed yourself and are always working on being better!
