Jobless After Graduation?success

Are you facing any of the following challenges?

  • I’ve just graduated without a job; where do I start?
  • How do I write a resume with just a degree and little experience?
  • How do I stand out from all the other recent grads?

Recent grads come to their job search with many pressures:

-financial needs to establish their lives or to pay off loans;

-from parents;

-from their own internal drives to move into the next phase of their lives.

Most often, they have focused on getting the required education, grades, and what seemed to be the most valuable academic or work eperiences. When they find themselves needing to look for a job, they realize that looking for a job is a very different set of knowledge and skills.

You’ve spent four or more years on your college education. Coming to career coaching is also an education. It is learning the specific – and newest – skills and best practices unique to taking yourself into the job market, finding the jobs for which you can effectively compete, and being the chosen candidate for those jobs. It might also be setting both short and long term strategies for your career. The biggest benefit is your ability to spend time on activities that have the highest return.

K.C. has practical tips and tools for each phase of the job search process:

– Assessing your talents and goals

– Creating a unique “Brand” that will set you apart

– Resume writing

– Posting on job boards / using Linked In

– Interviewing

– Negotiating

– Smart career navigating after you accept a position
