Are you soon-to-be grad or recent grad and trying to differentiate yourself in a sea of sameness? Are you applying for jobs but not hearing back? Or are you not sure where to even start?
Are you feeling bright? It’s hard. It’s December and crazy busy and the answer is no, you’re probably not feeling too bright right about now. I’m not talking about the holiday spirit, either. I’m talking about that part deep inside of you that feels good when you wake up and go to work, class or otherwise.
Should you intern if you’ve already graduated? This is a question I get A LOT. And I get it. You feel like if you’ve graduated you should get a job immediately. Which is great if you can. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes you just can’t get a company to take a chance on you. But you might be able to get a foot in the door if you intern for them first.
You’ve heard of a side hustle, right? I feel like that term has had a super big moment right now – and rightfully so!
It’s time to get in gear because September is the beginning of the all new you. Wait. You check your calendar. January is four months away. September is just another month. You’re done with school, so why should you think about September as a transition time?
Interviewing is NEVER easy. For anyone. Even for those who interview all of the time, it still is a challenge. Sure it might get easier over time, but it still plagues most folks with some level of anxiety. There are always ways that interviews trip you up and make you fumble and you lose your self-confidence.
You’ve had a lot of friends that you went to school with – which is awesome. When you move to a new city, you could be wondering who to keep and who to let go. You try for a while to keep in touch with your old friends but the busier you get, the harder it will be. Also, you might feel like you don’t have a ton in common with them anymore.
