Did you have a clear idea of what your career would look like when you entered University? What about when you graduated, that piece of paper firmly in hand? Perhaps you already had a job lined up – one that you knew would keep you engaged, moving forward on your clearly defined career path.
Unfortunately most people aren’t this lucky. High school students often graduate with a vague idea of potential career options, and after completing some form of post-secondary education that relates to that vague idea, they’re released into the professional world. As a result, all too often career choices are made out of necessity rather than a true understanding based on unique interests, drives, and career options.
With so many tips and tricks being thrown around, it’s not surprising that there are a lot of misconceptions being formed when it comes to job searching and career discovery. Thankfully this exclusive GradusTalks session is here to change all of that, helping to debunk career myths and give you the hard truth of what the job search is really about. The session will also offer tips on how to stand out to an employer and how you can go about making career choices.
