If you’re like most fresh-out-of-college students, you’re probably working with people who are significantly older than yourself. Sure, there are the hip creative agencies or the quickly growing tech start-ups where young employees are the norm, but these cases are not representative across the career board. This means that more than likely, you will be one of, if not the, youngest people at your job.
Have you ever felt like you don’t belong? Maybe you believe you’re not as good as your colleagues or co-workers, or that you don’t deserve the accolades you may have accumulated. Maybe you feel like things that go wrong are your own fault, or you’re very upset with yourself when you don’t live up to your own goals.
Internship season is upon us! The beginning of February is the perfect time to look for a spring placement, which means you need to act quickly if you want to be working this semester. In your search for the perfect job, you’ll probably find a decent amount of unpaid internships...but are they even worth your time?
Jerry Seinfeld once said, “To the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” While this is probably a bit of an exaggeration, most people do have a fear of public speaking. It might seem like an easy solution to take a job that doesn’t involve a public speaking component, these jobs are few and far between. In fact, most jobs require some level of public speaking - even if they don’t seem like they would.
It might feel as if you’ve sent out a thousand resumes and applications, made it to the first stage of a hundred interviews. If you still don’t have a job despite all of the efforts you’ve put in, it’s only natural to be upset. The key is turning that frustration into something more productive and never giving up.
When is the perfect time to start looking for an internship? Is it possible to look too soon? How do I promote my resume, even if I don’t have related experience? Is there a place I can go that will help me?
