Getting your degree is a huge milestone in your life. But, your journey doesn’t end when you have a degree in your hand. You have to find a job, start your career, or figure out what you’re going to do with your life after college. Here are some helpful hints to get you started.
Career Counseling Center
Most colleges and universities have a career counseling center. The career counseling center is a usually free resource to college students where you can make an appointment and talk to someone about the many different careers and volunteer opportunities available to you with the degree you have (or about to have).
Not graduating yet? No problem. Your career counseling center is open for all students. In fact, it’s a great resource for helping you choose your degree path. You can go in and talk to a career counselor about the degree options you’re considering, and they can help you get a clearer picture of what your career could look like with each option.
Just looking for a job? The career counseling center can help with that too. They can boost your interviewing skills, help you write a cover letter, and give you some helpful pointers on how to make your resume shine.
Websites like targetjobs.co.uk can help you find information on what types of careers are available to people with your degree. Other sites might contain other useful information. Searching the internet can be helpful.
Your Program Adviser
Talk to your program adviser about the careers available to someone with your degree. They can provide you with ample information, or point you to someone who could provide you with more specifics. They have a lot of insider knowledge and might be able to point you to someone you never thought of before.
You would be surprised by how diverse a college degree can be. Some careers do not require a particular degree as much as they need a college education. On the other hand, your degree could unlock the doors to some specialty careers that are a perfect match for your life. Dig deep, get creative and find the career path that will get you where you want to be.
