Apply for jobs and attend interviews

5. Apply for jobs and attend interviews

If you plan to find a job after graduation, set aside time each week for job search. Enrich your CV with experiences that can demonstrate your leadership, teamwork, organization and other skills that your future employer might look for. Practice writing tailor-made cover letters for each job. Attend recruitment talks and job fairs on and off campus. Browse job sites for suitable vacancies and send out applications. Keep abreast of current affairs. Interviewers will ask you questions that test your competence beyond your studies. You will feel nervous in the first couple of job interviews. Review your performance and learn from each as we all know “Practice makes perfect!”
