4 Ways To Kickstart Your Career In College


Who says you can't get a kickstart in the corporate America world while you're in school?! Employers are looking for a lot of things, but most of all is experience. Below are our four (4) ways to kickstart your career in college so you stand out at all the job fairs when the time comes.

First, get an internship! Whether it's during the school period or during summer, intern at a company that is either where you want to work or in the same industry. The best thing about doing this is that you're building rapport. That way, when it's time to transition to a full-time role they'll be more inclined to hire you.

Second, take on leadership roles. Employers want to see that you're a leader and the easiest way to convince them of that is to hold a leadership role in an on campus organization. This will look fab on your rèsumé!

Third, stack up recommendations. Having someone to endorse your skills is so beneficial. Nowadays, the easiest way to have your skills endorsed is through LinkedIn. Sign up for an account and seek those referrals.

Fourth, network with your sorority sisters! Co Founder, Karen did just that to leverage her current medical sales position. Even if you don't have a sorority sister, alumnae are awesome to have because they can teach you skills and coach you for the job you desire.

Good luck!
