Sln tracks college and university: what really going to land you a job?

When we are 17 or 18, we will make one of the biggest decisions of our lives. For better or worse

With a settlement

It turns out that the degree or the diplomas are helping, but it's something that you hired

For many high school graduates

"[ University] is a costly and costly self-discovery exercise."

At the same time, there is a growing number of university graduates who continue their studies at the university level after graduation. In the 2013 article

Jenna Pulver, a young professional working in the student union Sheridan as head and coordinator on engagement, had the same self-discovery as a university and then a college student. Jenna took the sociology and geography at Wilfrid Laurier University, where, although she had gained university experience, she found that much of what she taught was theory and ideas, and as a practical student, she could not fully join. "Like many undergraduates, I left the feeling that I was not ready, and I didn' t fully know what I wanted to do," he said

At the end of the university, Jenna hoped that she would continue her studies at the college level and send her to a program that would be more specific, she would learn the practical skills and find out what she really wanted to do. After the end of social work at Sheridan College, she realized that she loved to help people, but social work was not the career path she wanted to take. Fortunately, while she went to Sheridan, she was part of the student union, which led her to re-find her passion for leadership. Her role in the student union has enabled her to continue to grow up in her profession, and although she has no connection to the post-secondary level, she has become engaged in a career with full employment, with which she has been passionate about

Obviously, your education is not going to happen in itself, but it will help you learn and develop-even if it means you understand what you are studying. " You will have to go out there, find something that will separate you from others, diligently and volunteering. Have a cup of coffee, meet the new employees in the position you want to be, and find out, as in the network, Marcy MacMillan, a university and college graduate, and professional communication

"If someone has a degree, nobody has a degree."

Alissa Liotti had a similar experience. She was ready for a career in accounting due to Wilfrid Laurier's business administration. Three of her places in various accountancy roles encouraged her to network and helped her resume her work, which, of course, prepared her for a successful accounting career. She even offered a position at Deloitte Canada a year before she graduated, but something in the Liotti Accounting department wasn't there. "It took many hours for me to know that this is not a career path for me," she said. This led to the decision by Liotti to apply for a certificate after graduation in public relations; to give her competitive advantage and experience required to reach the pier industry level

The University provides many opportunities for self-discovery. This allows young people to learn a lot about themselves and what they like and do not like-an important step in understanding what you want to do for the rest of your life. Adeline Wong, Victoria University, explained that she was involved in the work

Emma Mackiazek, Psychology of the University of Lakevedov and the Graduate School of Environmental Science, took a different approach to helping her country to work in the field of marketing-a field she discovered at the university. McIsaac felt that her education had helped her to apply for work, but not necessarily land. "If someone has a degree, nobody has a degree," he said. She explained how she had depended on her experience and community participation to make her career in the marketing industry, with the exception of displacement, which, in the opinion of many people, was impossible without a degree or degree. So, how did she do that?

McIsaac worked part-time for a marketing company that promoted promotion throughout the university, and when it finished, it was automatically upgraded to full role. By the time McEizek was ready to move to his second career, a few years later, even though she was only 24 years old, she had spent seven years of marketing experience, making her opposition to other candidates, even if they were involved in post-education education, and she was not

As McIsak said, most professions require post-school education, but this is not something that will force you out of the system. In 1990 only a little more

"The universities do not teach you how to work, they teach you how to be idealistic, but not how to work with daily."

Mel Hattie, a graduate of the University of Bish and his student, explained that she would not do anything differently when it was about her education, but she did not necessarily lend her university to help her work. "The universities will not teach you how to work, they teach you how to be idealistic, but not how to work with the daily hammering," Hatti spoke of his experience. "They don't teach people how to do it." Hetty explained that several of the people she knew were unemployed after graduation because they refused to be pruned for anything other than their dream job-something that is often necessary to build your experience

After a discussion with a large number of current students, recent vacancies and young professionals about their work, it was clear that the majority depended on their participation in extra-curricular activities, past work or volunteer work, and on their hard work and commitment to work at the end of their studies. "Networking and creating connections can really give you a competitive advantage when applied to jobs," said Julia Moniz, a university graduate and financial advisor. "Meeting with the right people and influence can help you get your leg in the door while your education and experience proves that you are qualified to work."

As I spoke to the more recent and later years, I saw a tendency in which they combined a unique set of volunteer work experience, which led them to success in finding work. Victoria Stacey (Victoria Stacey), the current marketing professional, explained that it was a collaboration in her program at Waterloo University, which helped her to use the skills she uses every day. Alice Laiotti explained that her role was with her

"The universities take on a lot of credit for the successful experience of students, but the truth is that you end up as a person in the end."

Except for fields like medicine and law, where degrees are mandatory, choosing a university or college will not stop you from being more or less successful. If you want something bad, it's not part of the paper that stands in your way, that's if you want you to get a job to get there. "The universities are taking a lot of credit for the successful experience of students, but the truth is that you end up as a person," said Hattie. " I've had some very exceptional teachers who I am grateful for and to make me a better person, but if I wasn't ready to take part in the work, I would never have a relationship that I had with these teachers. The university doesn't make you stunning, you do! "
