College is MORE Than Books, Beer and Sleep

Do a little of this and lots of the job search...

Sleeping until noon, weekends that begin on Fridays and the privilege of studying are among the perks of undergraduate life, yet a benefit that is often overlooked is the employers who descend on college campuses each academic year to recruit the best and brightest for their respective companies.  In fact many students ignore this access to opportunity all together.  My suggestion: DONT.  Chances are if you are enrolled at a college or University in the United States there are companies looking for you. Take advantage of their willingness to woo you.   In order to  be wooed you have to be present. Show up. This may  require that you sleep a little less, invest time into your job search and  wait until the Friday career fairs end before you begin your weekend, but the pay off in the form of  job offer or internship  is worth it  don’t you  think?

How Are You Showcasing Your Talents and Interests?

Have something to showcase.

Have something to showcase.

What steps are you taking today to achieve your ultimate career goal?

What projects are you pursuing that demonstrates your commitment to your stated area of interest?

What are you doing to prove that you are more than just talk?

For example if you have an interest in fashion how does your resume  and experience showcase your dedication to this area?  What have you done that  illustrates your passion and excitement for this field?  For example have you interned with any designers?  Do you write or contribute to fashion blogs?  How about a YouTube show where you discuss  fashion trends?  It isn’t enough to have lofty and exciting goals, you must also demonstrate your commitment to these goals based on your activities. Your activities serve to a potential employer as proof of your stated area of interest.  If you can’t  showcase your interest then it’s just talk.

Go Even If It Doesn’t Relate To Your Major

Are you the student who ONLY attends events that targets your major?  For instance, if your major isn’t in the title of the event  you  don’t show up or if your major isn’t mentioned in the job description you don’t apply.  Unless an event or program specifically bars your attendance or participation I’d like for you to consider using every  recruiting activity on your school’s campus as a way to showcase your brand and learn about the various opportunities that companies offer.  Events and activities are a good way for you to practice communicating your message.  The more events you attend the better you get at meeting people and expanding your personal contact network.  You may also be exposed to  new industries and companies and ways to utilize your major that  you not have previously considered.  Don’t limit your job search experience by simply focusing on events that apply to your major.  Think outside of the box and expand your horizons just a bit by participating in something that doesn’t seem to relate to  your  area of study; you may uncover an area that becomes a new interest.

Do You Enjoy Your Major ?

A lot of students pursue major areas of study for reason other than their love and passion for the subject.  If you are one of those students chances are your lack of love is reflected in your grades. Your major is like most things in life if you don’t love it you will avoid it and as a result refuse to give it the time and attention that it deserves.  This will be evident in your grades.  While grades are not a measure of intelligence they are a measure of how much time and effective effort you give to a particular area.  Usually the more time and effort you spend on something the better you will be.

For many students average grades in your major area of study means 1. you are average in the area that you have chosen to devote the most of time in studying 2.  You are not giving it much time or serious effort.  Would you  hire someone to perform average work in an area that they claim to love?  If not, why would an employer pay you a salary for average effort in an area  in which you have majored.  Pursue something that you and enjoy and supplement what your major does not teach you with other activities and involvement on and off campus.   If you enjoy your major it will be evident.  You’ll  enjoy  your undergraduate experience so much more.
