You’ve probably read the title and thought what?? Years of study and thousands of dollars spent and it’s still not enough? Yup you’re right… well kind of.
Having a degree is great and is ultimately what’s going to get you through the door. But if that’s all you’ve got to offer, then I’m afraid you’re in for a shock.
Don’t worry! To have what employers are looking for isn’t going to cost you anymore money, it’s just going to be a matter of getting involved and getting experience. I know we always hear things like “you need 5 or more years’ experience” or “sorry, you don’t have enough experience” and you’re sitting there wondering how you’re going to get experience when no one is willing to let you start somewhere? Well, I might have a few ideas that could set you in the right direction!
A degree will only get you so far! Your involvement in other aspects of life and your character are going to add value to your degree. Don’t sell yourself short, apply for everything and get involved in whatever you can!
