Class of 2021, YOU did it! You’re at the final stretch, only a few short weeks and you’re a college graduate! Wow, who knew four years would fly by so fast?! Going to miss game days, gross lunch in the dining hall (you know you will), going out with friends, Spring Break adventures, and so much more. BUT, look at the bright side - NO MORE HOMEWORK - WOHOOO! Oh wait, you still have one more assignment left, these 3 things you MUST do before graduating:
1. SOUND THE ALARM!
Tell everyone you know that you are about to graduate and are going to be on the job market. Friends, family, professors, speakers, managers, coordinators, anyone you know should be aware you are graduating. Not only should you tell them your graduating, but also tell them what you want to pursue, because after all you never know who they might know!
2. VIRTUAL NETWORKING MEETINGS
I know, I know, you probably want to skip this one because you're tired of Zoom but just trust us on this one. Schedule meetings with your alumni center, job center, professors, deans, anyone on campus you have a relationship with. Ask if they know anyone in the industry you want to get into that you can get in touch with, don’t just ask to have them "keep you in mind" because honestly they won’t.
3. LINKEDIN – DUH!
Open up Instagram, scroll through EVERYBODY and start connecting with them on LinkedIn. You never know, that shy, quiet girl that would sit in the back of the class could be the next CEO of your dream company. What are you waiting for? Get on LinkedIn and add them NOW!
