Before graduating college and beginning the job search, you’ll want to make sure you have a basic skill set to make you more hirable and help successfully transition into the workplace. One important skill is to be able to self-reflect by assessing, articulating, and acknowledging your personal skills and abilities while also learning from experience and feedback in order to gain new insights about yourself. This skill can be learned through any on-campus job and is a transferable skill that you will use no matter what job you have in the future. Make the connection now between the skills you are learning as a student worker and your long-term career goals! It’ll make it that much easier when you have to find a job.
