What are Employers Looking for From Graduates?
What are Employers Looking for From Graduates?

The purpose of attending college or university, generally, is to obtain a successful career in a field in which you have significant interest.  The dogma, for many years, has been that you need a college degree to find a lasting career in this country. This fact still holds true, but employers look for more than just a college degree from graduates. The college degree has become a requirement for employment rather than an extra bonus for employees. Now, more than ever, you must have qualifications other than a degree from a reputable college or university. Even more than this, your university degree must match the standards of recruiters and hiring managers.

Make Yourself Irreplaceable
Make Yourself Irreplaceable

With all of the courses available in college, schools should begin to stress the importance of being a valued employee. This seems like common sense, but many students are clueless as to how to go about doing this once they get into the real world. Showing a company that you are irreplaceable is a hard task and although no one is really irreplaceable you can at least make it hard for the company to do so.

Where Do You Want To Be?
Where Do You Want To Be?

Knowing what you want out of a life is a big decision to make. Everyone realizes what they want in life at different times, but many have whiffs of where they would like to be during college. The issue here is that people change and so do hopes and dream. There is nothing you can do about your changing feels, but when you have a strong feeling about something you should jump on it. If you are one of those people whose dreams change every month, you might want to reevaluate where you are in your life now and where you see yourself in the future.

Patience is a Virtue after College
Patience is a Virtue after College

It is not a secret that college students have no patience. They are continuously rushing and becoming agitated with those making them late for the next class, next appointment, or next available time to boil some noodles and study. Once college is over, students have to gain a better perspective on life and realize even though it was their time while in college, it is no longer as self-involved. Once graduated, students need to bow to the demands of a career and their new superiors. Adjusting to this can cause personal turbulence but the sooner it is learned the sooner they will be acclimated with their new demeanor in life.

Second Languages Take Backseat
Second Languages Take Backseat

From the time we were in elementary school we have always been taught the value of learning a second language for our futures. But now that we are pretty much there, have you seen much need for this second language? As a recent college student I have found that many college-aged adults have taken the time to learn languages such as Spanish and Italian. The issue that has come about is that they have no need to use it. This is not true for all who learn a second language, but a decent number are experiencing this.

Why Get Your GED?
Why Get Your GED?

Today it is very important to make sure you have some sort of piece of paper that indicates you have either finished high school or graduated from college. The problem here is that not everyone is able to finish high school in order to get in to college. Sometimes, high school does not occur at the right time for students, or other problems have caused a high school diploma to be out of reach. Whatever reasons, it is still important to get your GED at any point during your working years.
