How do you build a successful career, without any experience?

Many job offers/positions require a person to have experience. If I'm fresh out of College, of course I'd be looking for a place to work. How will I be able to prove myself in my field, even though I'm a rookie/newbie. #jobs #salary #job-market #career #job

Angela’s Answer

Hi Eboni,


There are plenty of ways for you to get experience while you are in school. A great way to get experience is to complete internships during the school year or over the summer. During this time you will get a sense of what it is like to work for a particular company, make connections and gain real world experience. You can also work part time during school. Getting a part time campus job will boost your resume. If there is a class that you really enjoy, apply to become a Teaching Assistant. Any of these experiences will improve your resume and you can always refer to these positions during an interview.


Good luck!

Angela recommends the following next steps:

Apply for internships for winter and summer breaks
Look at part time campus jobs
Apply for TA positions

You can find many entry level or part time jobs to work at while attending school. For any specialty field you are looking into, then internships may be a great way to start. Many jobs are posted online these days but you can certainly go into company offices to see if they have any available openings as well.

Hi Eboni,

There are many ways to build a career without experience. I would recommend to create a Linkedin account with your school history, languages you know etc. It would be good to try to find an internship during your school times, so you would be a part of a company that might hire you immediately after school.
