The excitement of graduation is real but what’s more is what to do after the graduation. It has been a wonderful time going class and learning as much as we could and we are definitely grateful for how far we’ve come. My friends Jerry and Grace graduated the other day and I couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations to them. I graduated too. Well, I didn’t wear a gown because it wasn’t necessary but it felt the same as I felt when I graduated from campus. The course was so enjoyable, I wished it was longer.
I am in that space too, now that you are done with books what next. Here are a few pointers that will get you ahead.
- Polish up your CV, portfolio whatever it is that you are required to present for a job. Include your recent achievements.
- Send out application letters if you do not have a job yet or if you are looking to move to a better position. The more letters you send out the higher the chance for you to land on an interview.
- Work on being the best version of yourself. Yes, the papers matter but what employers really buy is you; how you present yourself, your mannerisms, confidence, organisation just to mention a few. Work on that and you will thank yourself.
These are just a few but you can do a lot more if you are dedicated and motivated. All the best and thank you for reading.
