Whether you have a specific career in mind or you’re not exactly sure where your degree will lead you, the process of finding and getting a job can be a bit overwhelming. If you’re feeling stuck, consider the following advice. Although we’ve compiled these tips in a specific order, any one of them might help set you on the right path.
1. Talk to your academic advisor—on a regular basis. Your academic advisor should know you pretty well by the end of your freshman year. They’ll not only know what courses you need to take to stay on track, but they’ll be familiar with your interests, skillsets, and passions. If you’re considering grad school, they can point you in the right direction and might even know which courses will best prepare you for a specific program. They might also have some valuable internship connections for you to pursue. Many students get hired directly out of an internship, so this is a great place to “test-drive” a variety of work environments.
2. Check out Corban’s job board. Whether you’re looking for a summer job to make money for college or a full-time job after graduation, Corban’s job board can be a great place to get started. These employers have already signaled that they’re excited to hire Corban students, which can be a refreshing confidence-boost.
3. Keep your resume up-to-date. If you don’t have a resume yet, there are dozens of online resources that offer free templates, tips, and advice. Having a baseline resume in your files will allow you to quickly and efficiently tailor it to a new position should an opportunity come up.
4. Research companies that interest you. If you have an idea of what companies you might be interested in working for, browse their websites and see if there are any career opportunities that seem to fit your skillset. Remember that most industries offer a variety of career opportunities. Hospitals need more than doctors, schools need more than teachers, and government organizations need more than politicians—they also need people in HR, communications, and accounting, just to name a few!
5. Don’t be discouraged. If it feels like you’re in a period of waiting, don’t be discouraged! The perfect opportunity could come up when you least expect it. Keep applying to jobs that interest you, and keep talking with family and friends about your career goals. Someone might hear of a lead and be able to pass it on to you. If you’re still feeling stuck, revert to “step 1” and talk with your advisor. They might be able to help you reframe your job search and start from a new angle.
