Getting A Job

Trial and error

Choosing a career path comes easy to some people but takes years of self-discovery for others. It’s okay if you haven’t discovered your true calling yet. However, your bills won’t pay themselves while you do some necessary soul-searching. Even if you don’t feel completely dedicated to a particular career choice right now, one thing is certain: you gotta get a job! 

Earning your own money and paying your own bills is certainly a rite of passage into adulthood. You’ll likely have several jobs over your lifetime, and with any luck you’ll enjoy a pay raise with each transition.

But getting that first job in your 20s can feel daunting, even if you already have some experience working during college or high school.

How to write a good resume

After all, how can you know what kind of environment you work best in until you’ve tried a few different ones? Or which skills and strengths you possess? A career coach can help take some of the guesswork out of this process so that you find a job you truly enjoy without having to go through too much trial and error.

The great thing about being young is that you do have plenty of time to get things figured out.

You’ll learn a lot from virtually every job — even if you primarily learn what you don’t like to do.

Your first job doesn’t necessarily define your entire career.

Determining what kinds of jobs you want to apply to is just part of the equation. Getting a job requires you to prepare a resume, craft a unique cover letter for each position, and learn how to confidently handle an interview. You also need to know where to find open positions. Let our experts guide you through the job search process, whether it’s your first time applying for a job or you’re currently working and seeking a new opportunity.
