You have the blissful months of happiness right after you graduate with the sense of accomplishment of having donned the hat and he cloak. But the euphoria will sadly but surely rub off as you enter the world of ‘trying to find a job’. Currently the job market in any country is in a sad state unless you have the right degree for the right company. Finding a job is gruesome and hard work and sometimes your efforts do not get even half the rewards. But before going about not liking the co-workers or the boss, you have to go through the transformation of doing the first version of the CV with a happy attitude and then ending up doing the 10th version without any hopes at all. Even though most people turn to the international scope when they do not see any opportunities in their own local job markets, applying to international companies right from the beginning would be much better.
Making yourself marketable
Nowadays it is all about selling your skills and certificates that will get you known; along with some good networking skills. LinkedIn and Facebook are two of the top sites where you can make yourself known to people who are interested in hiring or are headhunting. Your profile needs to be clean and filled to the brim with your experiences and technical capacities and it should showcase a bit of your personality as well (but not too much or it will take away professionalism). LinkedIn is recognized as the official method for having a profile that is professional and also catering to the crowd that is looking for employees. So make sure to get your friends and professors to endorse your skills as well. If you have any experience working as a tutor in a tuition agency ni Singapore for English, no matter how insignificant, then it is best to add that into the resume somewhere as well.
Volunteering and interning
Volunteering/ interning at the company of your preference is actually a great way to integrate yourself slowly into the internal circle. You can get contacts and work your networking techniques to get a full time or part time position at the company. In the international world, study abroad sessions or gap year can be taken for getting some volunteering done. This will also be a great chance for you to show your skills and hardworking abilities and get to know the company that you want to work at. In most foreign language spoken countries, working as a tutor that you can have effective learning experience will actually earn you a lot of money.
Participate in career exhibitions, join professional associations and groups and make your professional circle wider so that you can be exposed to more opportunities. Keep doing volunteering at your own locality and also other courses and certifications to increase your technical skills.
