Gaining Experience While In College
January 30th 2020 @ 1:40 PM   |  Liv

Hey students! “What are your plans after college?”

"What are your plans after college?" The most dreaded question you could get as an upperclassmen. Well, hopefully you have your listening ears on because this topic applies to all of you in order to get this exact question figured out. There is no time too early to get started on building your resume in order to blow an employer’s socks off. In fact, one of my biggest regrets is not getting after it from the start. Here’s what will come as a surprise to you: the experience you gain is arguably more important than school. *GASP* How dare I say that, right?

 

Well listen here. As a second semester senior who has freaked out about what she wanted to do for her life, changed majors multiple times as well as schools, the one thing that has always been advised to me is you won’t truly know what a career will be until you give it a shot in a job or internship. So how do you do that? Get out of your comfort zone, ramp up your LinkedIn, establish what you are genuinely passionate about and head to the career center. Apply for that part time job as a teaching assistant if your dream is to become a professor, lead that team in your RSO to build your leadership skills, or grab that internship where you might just be doing cold calls to see if the sales industry is right for you. Get your freaking foot in the door, friends. You won’t start at the top, but you have to start somewhere. The experience will reinforce your path or beneficially make you shift gears to a plan B.

 

I get it, college is intimidating and overwhelming at times, but do this for yourself and I promise you it will change the end result of your scholastic career for the better. I'm here to tell you that you got this.

I’m here to tell you that you got this.

And I’m so serious about that statement. I found my niche so I know you will too. College is such an important time to grow as an individual and develop to your potential. It’s an opportunity to slingshot yourself into your future. So one last question for you, will the experience you have make you soar?
