How can I be guaranteed a job after I graduate from college?

You've just gone through four years of college (or more) so now that you're done you need to find what you've been working so hard to obtain. A job. It will be nice to have peace of mind knowing how I can be guaranteed a job after college. #engineer #professor #graduate #electrical-engineer

Lee’s Answer

My advice would be to get a job as an operator or technician during college. While you may have to take longer to obtain your degree, you will gain valuable experience reading drawings, understanding various processes, and getting real world work experience. For example, an operator in manufacturing will read work instructions, reference an assembly drawing, use measurement tools, and run equipment. This is great experience to put on your resume. It also shows that you have been exposed to a high pressure work environment and are able to handle it professionally. If you stick with that company, they may even hire you as an engineer once you finish school.

Hi Tristan D. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

Adding a bit to the answers already provided, I am inclined to agree with the advice that Gabriella has given...there is no such thing as a guaranteed job. This is the case for new graduates or for people who have been working in a particular space for a while. In very general terms, a job is one that oftentimes is earned based on how a worker has been able to contribute to fixing a problem.

What CAN help though, in increasing your odds for getting a job once you graduate from college, are things like summer internships. Some colleges/universities have programs where they arrange for their students to get a summer job with companies, government agencies, etc. These arrangements can come as part of the curriculum at the college/university and likely come with requirements in order to be accepted for a summer internship program. In other cases, the student may have to go and find their own internships/summer jobs. Either way, building a relationship with an employer while you are still in college can help as you plan for job prospects once college is over.

Best of luck to you!
