You are not alone! Many students are having the same experience and I recall friends of mine having the same experiences in college. Try to identify transferable skills. For example, organization and communication are skills that transfer easily among different fields. Without knowing your major and current work experience, I can't give you specific skills to focus on but just know that other skills such problem solving, leadership and collaboration play well in any field, as well. Also, employers will likely look at those overall skills since you have yet to gather significant professional experience after college. If you are involved in a student organization or have volunteered, you may be able to promote the skills you have gathered there, as well. Best of luck!
