It is important to remember to set your goals- and do not stray from them! It is advised to make a list of potential jobs prior to your initial job search. These ideal jobs will help you direct your search in a positive manner and allow you to assess your timelines towards gainful employment.
When the job market is diminished and you are not hearing back from companies, it can be easy to become frustrated or fear that your resume is entering a black hole. It is highly recommended to keep a journal or record of where you apply and to whom you sent your resume. Remember to always follow up! This shows your potential employers that you are genuinely interested in working with them and eagerly awaiting their feedback.
From reading Ms. Pamela Wall’s post regarding “My Resolution,” I have to agree with the fact that “the future is now.” As you embark on your independent job search it is important to remain organized and focused. Gear your search towards what you want to be doing. As recent graduates the future may seem like a threatening or unusual place- where you are no longer graded for your effort, and the work isn’t divided by semesters. This will be your job! Make it something that interests you, and something that you are truly excited about.
