7. Choose a course with wide horizons. There are college courses that are applicable to almost all governing industries and businesses. Hence, these courses will surely prosper in the future along with the development of technology. Prefer to have these kinds of courses, if you want to have a secure job matching. Still, consider what interests you. Try to find the college course that has large applicability including in your field of interest. Just weigh these factors properly and you won’t get lost in your journey to your matching job.

8. Attend seminars and trainings for future employment. As I’ve said earlier, the employment trend is changing along with the development of technology and discovery of new knowledge. If you don’t want to get left behind, go with the trend. Have your skills upgraded once in a while. Know the latest skills and knowledge required on your field and get it for yourself. There are available free trainings provided by private and public institutions. You just need to discover where they are. The competition for employment is getting tough. So, prepare for it. Equip yourself and you’ll always become in-demand in your chosen field.

9. Participate on school extracurricular activities. Sometimes skills aren’t just enough, especially if you’re newly graduate competing with experienced applicants. To keep up with the competition and emerge among others, you need to prove your worth on record. And the best way to do it if you’re a newly graduate is presenting your extracurricular achievements. Believe it or not, the extra activities at school say something about your competitiveness. It may prove your leadership, socialization, and communication skills. If you have good grades along with great extracurricular achievements, you’d prove your skills in time management, perseverance, and determination. I’ve meet some people who had the degree required but they were assigned to lower jobs because they are not qualified enough. If you don’t want to land on a job lower than the level

10. Practice your interest while you’re at school. If you want to gather enough qualifications to beat more qualified applicants in the future, start practicing your field of interest now. Don’t worry. There are available “pre-qualifying jobs” in your field that don’t require degree. These prequalifying jobs may come from voluntary community services, project gigs, or part time employment online. Take advantage of the availability of internet. Search online jobs. If you haven’t got much time to finish projects, join a group instead. There are groups of IT’s who take paid contract projects. They encourage students to join them. Start gathering your work experience through these opportunities. Next>>>
