This LinkedIn post, Dear Graduate, Here’s How to Get in the Game, offers pointers to graduates that extend beyond the usual resume writing and interview skills:
- Seek the juncture of your strengths and passions rather than focusing on the compensation. The money will come.
- Before the interview, study the company well enough to be conversant on what matters to them.
- Benefit from your parents’ experience in communicating with professionals. Let your parents (or in my opinion, a mentor too) help you plan what to say, how to dress and how to follow up after an interview.
Congratulations class of 2015!
