How for a Job
As a result of the population booming in the past, the competition in job markets is getting much fiercer. As college students who are the future, we must prepare ourselves when still on campus in order to gain an upper hand.
There are several things we college students can do to sharpen our competitive edge. First, start preparing early. We all know that it is the early bird that catches the worm. It is too late to consider our future career upon graduation. Why not plan beforehand? Second, we should attach greater importance to our personalities such as honesty, cooperation and perseverance. They are more important than appearance in landing a job although it is advantageous to have a neat look. Third, we should make a close self-examination so as to know what our weaknesses and strengths are so that we can do something about them to improve ourselves. Lastly, we can take some preliminary training for the job we'd like to have. For example, if an English major wants to work as a certificated public accountant, he'd better acquaint himself with some financial knowledge while on campus.
In a word, opportunity will only favor those with a ready mind. Just figure out what we'd like to do in the future and act accordingly.
