Are you fighting for a full-time position in the job market?

Posted: February 24, 2011 in Decisions, Decisions


 …That seems to be the trend these days as college graduates leap into the “real world.”
Bravo! You just received your bachelor’s degree, now what’s the next step? Start job searching would be a great answer, but how do I go about getting a full-time job in this economy? There’s a lot of competition in the workforce and as graduates we feel we don’t stand a chance.  Firms that are hiring are often times seeking candidates who have both a college degree AND experience. Even if a business provides a strenuous list of qualities you must possess, it’s worth a shot. It only takes a few minutes of your time to email your resume to a company. In order to stand out from others, you must job “search” on a regular basis. If you’re waiting for the call to say you got the job, think again, few and far between occasions arise this way. In order to get a job, you must display characters of being a self-driven, determined, and diligent individual to be successful in today’s job mark.
