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
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.
Angela recommends the following next steps:
I know not everyone can afford to work for free for 6 months (and she did have a second retail job in the evenings and the weekends to make her rent and eat). But her hustle and hard work paid off with a dream job in the end.
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.
