According to The American Freshman: National Norms Fall, 87.9 percent of students identified, “to be able to get a better job,” as, “very important,” in deciding to attend college. Competition in the job industry is at an all-time high, and most schools fail to provide students with the important knowledge needed to succeed in every aspect of the employment process.
Seeing the need his own students had for knowledge, Huer wrote Be Employed When You Graduate to outline the simple steps you need to take while you are still a student to get internships, freelance positions and post-graduate jobs. In this book you will learn:
- What you need to ace the interview
- How to create a resume
- Where to find professional opportunities at your university
Obtaining a rewarding career is as much a learned skill as the technical ones you’ve learned in class. This book is intended to guide college students from the fundamentals of professionalism to accepting a job offer. Huer’s perspective places students in control of their future with practical advice that can be applied to any major.
