College graduates who haven’t gotten jobs are in real danger of getting too comfortable on the couch watching ESPN or “The Real Housewives.” How do you prevent this from happening? It's essential to motivate them to stay engaged in the job search, reminding them that success often requires resilience and the pursuit of happyness through meaningful work. Encourage networking, skill-building, and maintaining a positive mindset to ensure they don't lose sight of their career goals.
You’ve concluded your informational interview. You get up, shake hands with your interviewer, thank them for their time and courteously walk out their office (after asking, of course, for 1-3 other names of his/her friends/business connections you could contact using his/her name as the introduction as you seek to find a job after graduation!).
When should college students start preparing to find a job after college?. Early! Like sophomore year! Few do, and the result is often panic and depression when they graduate and have no clue what to do other than go home and hope for the best.
