Taking full advantage of these opportunities will only increase your chances on securing a job.
What are the benefits an opportunity like this you ask??
Try before you buy
A great time to make sure you are making the right decision. I've had the experience of registering for a class then realizing it was not what I wanted or expected. Luckily I was able to withdraw and find a better class. Careers are the same. Before you even dedicate your studies to one profession, be a intern or volunteer for some time to see if this is what you can see yourself doing in the future.
Earlier on Instagram we posted a meme that stated " Need experience to get job, need job to get experience". Having the early on experience will only put in a better position when applying to jobs. You will be able to expand on your education by learning skills and abilities that can only be taught on the job. Strengthen skills such as time management, professionalism, and communication are the intangibles that employers are seeking
Creating and building a network of professionals in your industry will be an essential key to your growth. You will be submerged in an environment where individuals are dedicated to their profession. Joining professional associations is another way you can expand your network. Going to conferences or meetings regularly will allow to be exposed to industry trends.
