How to Get Your First Job after Graduation

The more things change, the more things remain the same!

Why do I say that?

The fundamentals of job search are unchanged!

What do I mean by that?

Regardless if you are a high school or college graduate, you need to sell yourself to a prospective employer as a problem solver, who can add significant value, compared to what they are willing to pay you. In other words, if they do not hire you with your skills, they would lose more money than what they will pay you!

Sounds simple? It is easy to say but difficult to do!

Here are three key pointers:

1.   Know exactly what you want to want to do ( technical, medical, legal, engineering, etc.).

2.   Where do you want to do it (industry, company, etc.).

3.   Find the hiring manager and convince her/him that you will be an asset to the company.
