Build your resume otherwise ... seek out volunteer opportunities with local non-profits that have great need for your specific skillset or opportunity for different and broader experiences.

First I will take away the “how-can-I-get-experience-if-I-have- no-experience” dilemma from my Mind and I will start working on the following:
Create my own blog: If I don’t know what career path I want to pursue, I will pick a personal interest and write about that, it’s preferable if I can put in on a professional topic but if I can’t, I will write about a subject that interests me.


Create a LinkedIn profile: I will start to prepare my profile. Even if the profile is just a bare-bones list of where I attend high school, my extra-curricular activities, what I see as my skills, and a summary of the sort of career that may interest me


Finding a Mentor: I will find a Mentor who is doing what I want to do and become.


If I am desperate and breath in it, I am definite that I will get a Job soon.

Faseeh’s Answer

First, you are a human being.
You have immense talent and abilities in you. You have a lot of options open. If not A then B.
This does not mean that job type A is superior to job type B.
It simply means you are a survivor who sensed opportunity and grabbed the offer that job B gives you.
The world is a race for the best of the survivors. Those who constantly survive, come on top of the list. Just like any game that you have.


If you have done a course and do not have an opening in the same field, do not waste your time, just enter into a vocational job.
Two things will happen:
1. You will have constant amount of money flowing in.
2. You will have an experience that seldom people will get and that will enable you to think bigger and better when you do enter the stream of your choice.
I am saying this because I have three cousins who underwent this phase.

Anthony’s Answer

i understand how frustrating this can be. Consider entry level positions in your area of interest. Also, don't rule out other forms of employment outside of your field of interest. Look for temporary work or even seasonal help at local movie theaters, retail stores etc. While it may not be your ultimate goal it will show a prospective employer that you are active while you search for so meting in your area of interest


As difficult as it may be try and remain positive and focused. Gook luck.

Once you complete your studies. First you have to analyse your skills in which you are good in and you can apply for it so that you will get a job for your capability.Instead trying for a job which you are not sure about.

Hi!

Most universities still allow their alumni to utilize career services. This would be a good opportunity for you to sit don with a career counselor to look over your resume and experiences figure out what steps you need to take to get into desired career field. In addition, it would be good to develop your skills and experiences to make yourself more of a desirable candidate. You may want to do further research on your career to know what type of experiences you would need for your career, such as an internship, certificates, volunteer, etc. Make connections with people in your desired career field and discuss opportunities and what it takes to get in the career.

Hi


Do not give up. You just have to try something different. Networking is a very important way to go. Here are some ideas:


One of the best ways to find a job is to go through the alumni relations department of the college from which you graduated. Arrange to talk to graduates in your field of study to see what they are doing and how they got there.


Also locate professional organizations that represent your field of study in your area so that you can network and see how you might be able to use your degree.


Here are some pointers regarding networking that might help:
