Think of me as Ned from the classic Nickelodeon show “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide”. I’ll be going through every part of the job search and telling you all about it. The best part is, all you have to do is read!
When I first came to Western, I started as a double major in Agriculture Business and Communication. My goal was to work for Ag companies in their Communication departments. I later realized that I didn’t want to limit myself to only Ag companies and therefore changed my major to just Communication and added a minor in Marketing. Changing my major actually allowed me to graduate earlier than I had planned which is the opposite of what usually happens! When I found out I would be graduating in December 2014 instead of May 2015 I realized I lost an entire semester of looking for a career! My stress level went through the roof! But after I calmed down, I realized I still have plenty of time but I should probably get started. Experts say to start your career search six to nine months before your graduation date so that’s exactly what I did.
Follow along in my next blog to find out how my career search is going and what tips and tricks I have to offer!
