Welcome to the working world. We are so excited for you to leave your “student” title behind. We are here to help! Our advice for graduates looking for a job could be just what you need to hear.
Are You Ready for Your Future?
So you have now completed your studies. Congratulations are in order! Now we know that those first few months after graduation are sometimes rough. The transition from studying to working might seem scary, but we are here to make it as easy as possible.
Take Your Time
There is no rush. The only thing worse than being unemployed is choosing the wrong career. Once you have completed your qualification, there will be a host of careers in your field. Make sure that you choose one that suits your lifestyle best.
Understand the Job Market
There are some things that we simply can not control, like the weather, economy and the job market. The job market is another big contributing factor when choosing a career. There is a supply and demand factor.
Which Careers in Your Field are Currently In-Demand?
Before choosing your career, check how many jobs are currently available in the field. You can do this by visiting sites like Career Junction. Simply search your desired job and check how valuable you are!
What if I Can’t get a job in the Role I Studied for?
This is where you need to be strategic about where you are applying. If you are unable to get the job you want, try and apply for a different role in the same field. By doing this, you could work in your field of interest and make the transition when your role becomes available.
Your degree might qualify you for your career but a completed workplace skills course will make you stand out from the rest. Companies look for the best candidate for the job. By having more skills, you become a valuable asset. These are a few courses we offer:
- Becoming a Successful Supervisor
- Business Etiquette
- Change Management
- Managerial Leadership
Go Near and Far for Opportunities
Do not be afraid to relocate. Sometimes the only jobs available in your field will be in different parts of the city, country or even the world. A new challenge and journey might seem like a scary concept but progress often means change. Follow your career wherever it might take you!
Do a Short Course
We offer a variety of courses which cover many careers. By having both a qualification coupled with your short course qualification, you become a valuable asset. Choose one of our courses that couples best with your existing qualification. As an example, if you have graduated with a business degree you could complete our Business Management Course to upskill yourself even more.
Apply for Internships
