Question
Look for Work, Plan Your Career

“I’ve finally graduated and now I want to apply what I’ve learned. How do I get started?”

Answer

Finding a job related to your education is easier when you have a plan.

You’ll need to learn how to market yourself to employers. If you’re fresh out of school, you may not have much experience, but you may have developed skills that employers are looking for.

Highlighting these skills – often referred to as transferable skills – will show an employer how valuable you can be.

Also, make sure you’re looking in the right place. Check job boards and other job postings to see what employers are looking for, and ask friends and former coworkers if they know about job openings.
