You Gon’ Get This Work: How to Snag a Career In College And Beyond


2. No Shots: Lacking Bullet Points On Your Résumé

Make like a Justin Bieber-sponsored blemish remover and be proactive. Most colleges house a career center that hosts panels and diverse seminars throughout the year for students to meet with individuals in a certain field. Even if your résumé mirrors a blank slate, use the tools you already possess like personality and educational background to win over a potential employer. Prep your elevator pitch by researching that person’s occupation and compliment them on an accomplishment you found inspiring. Being hands-on will reap benefits long after the firm handshake is done.
