That’s so awesome! Actually, I think I found CareerFuel through one of your LinkedIn posts on a shared group we must have. 🙂
Heather, this was such a good link, thank you! I’ve been hitting a lot of silence on the job search lately, so there must be something to fix.
Heather, while I was at Smith College, I heard so much about friends planning on grad school. Smith had lots of grad school fairs, too, and hardly any career talks in my field of interest, so I felt a little lost compared to everyone else. It gave me the impression that moving on to a job instead was analogous to not going to college. Granted, my friends were mostly in science or sociology-based majors so they needed grad school to get any sort of good job. I was very ready to graduate and can’t imagine continuing school for at least 4 more years, however, so my friends felt a little jealous.
Thanks, AnnMarie! I was really worried about this, so your confirmation was what I needed.
Samantha, how easy was finding a second job after already having one? Did you use Craigslist again or something else?
Yes, I was wondering this as well. Does this mean you have to make a decision to focus only on one career field, even if you have experience and interest in two sectors, like editorial and marketing? This would help career focus but I’m worried that would decrease job search options if transferrable skills are viable.
Lauren, did you end up taking a post-grad internship, and if so, what did you think?
I graduated this May and have been considering post-grad internships, too, though I’ve also had prior internships. I do believe exactly what Heather found on Twitter, though. Do you think there’s a likelihood of getting a job at the company after interning there if everyone knows you’ve graduated already?
What would you say are some good questions to ask? Asking questions to the interviewer can show preparation and interest in the company, but I’ve also seen on career advice logs that sometimes questions are asked for the sake of showing this rather than actually being interested in the answer. I really liked Greg’s post about asking what a successful candidate will look like after 6 months on the job.
