Finding a job in Business is not necessarily difficult. There are many options as ‘business’ is a broad area. Are you interested in Accounting, Finance, Investment Banking, Banking, Operations, Financial Planning and Analysis, Data mining, Analyst, Risk Management, Compliance (just to name a few)? Research and explore to narrow down your interests. Do you mind working long hours?, Do you need a flexible schedule? Do you have interest in one industry more than another?
Where you start out may not be where you end up as your interests might change so be prepared when post-graduation opportunities arise. I got my start in Accounting ~2 months post-graduation when one of my former Accounting professors recommended me to a CPA firm. I was grateful, prepared & anxious to get my career started.
I have had jobs with several different companies in different industries using recruiters and have also moved across Accounting, Finance, Legal and Sales Operations. The key to finding a job is a handy and succinct resume, research, practice interviewing, show your authentic personality, skills, demonstrate how you add value & NETWORK! You should seek out people doing what you would like to do and see how they got their start (ex., networking groups, professor's connections to business, family/friend connections).
Believe in yourself and the sky is the limit!
Tirzah recommends the following next steps:
- Start somewhere and then see what you like/don’t like. When starting at an entry level, the ease of getting a job will vary depending on the relationships you have, your preparedness (resume & interviewing), your ability to stand out, assertiveness and any technical skills (companies like certifications… obtain one in some area of interest).
