Does it feel like all of your friends have jobs and you’re going on interview after interview but nothing seems to line up? Getting frustrated, jealous and worried nothing will pan out before you graduate? We get it - we’ve all been there! Going through the job search process is not easy. It can be a stressful time but don’t give up, think outside the box and know what you stand for. You are not in this alone and reach out to the free resources that your campus offers and get more involved in your community. Small changes can make a big difference and can lead to your first full time position.
Now that we are one month into 2017, it is time to look back to those resolutions you may(or may not) have set one month ago. The brand new year is full of fresh starts, new beginnings, and original goals. Each time we find ourselves back in at the beginning of the year, it’s a good time to reassess the many important facets of our lives: health, relationships, education, career, finances, happiness, and the like.
How do you create content to tell your story? Be intentional about it.
Whether we use it to our advantage or not, headed into 2016, we as individuals and organizations are media companies. With a camera in our smartphone we can now tell our story (or thoughts, concerns, or feelings) with the push of a button on a variety of platforms that is then amplified to 50 or 5,000 followers. Unfortunately, several organizations haven’t grasped that they are also a media company and need to put out content. Instead, they rely on traditional marketing tactics with a push “buy my product” mentality.
