Many recent alumni are unsure of what they are able to do with their degree once they have graduated. There are a few important things to remember as you begin to explore your employment opportunities. Your degree is not a permanent stamp; if you combine it with the other skills you possess rather than boxing yourself into your degree’s pre-established field, you will open yourself up to more opportunities in the market.
The EU Alumni Association is a great tool for any recent graduate to get a pulse of the current business world and its trends. Networking is one of the best ways to gain first-hand, tangible information on how those with successful careers got to where they are. Use your alumni network to gain valuable insight into the current market from active, successful business people.
The current job market is difficult, and there are fewer opportunities than in recent years. Although graduates need to be flexible, it is very important to avoid applying for jobs you don't want and won’t enjoy. While your dream job might not open up right now, a job you can tolerate certainly will.
On the EU Alumni Association website you can find information on open jobs as well as contacts that might open doors throughout your career. For more information on the EU Alumni Association send an email to email@example.com.
