JOB HUNTING After College: Finding Jobs, Applications, Interviews, Compensation

I’ve only known how to hunt for jobs for internships and for my one job at Accenture (my first job application in college for entry level and landed it!), but because I had family that stayed in the same job for decades and friends that have not changed jobs yet, I had to learn a lot of this alone in this journey on how they actually differ and what to watch out for, so here are my lessons learned! Maybe this will help you!

Important Questions To Ask the Interviewer in a Job Interview

We’re always told to ask good questions after (or even during) a job interview, but instead of asking meaningless questions, here are some good questions to ask in a job interview to not only impress the interviewers but also for you to find out if this job and company are right for you!

HOW TO GET A JOB IN TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING: Application Strategy | CAREER COACHING WITH CHRISTINE

I worked with Ivan on a job application strategy to enter into technology consulting! Sometimes pivoting in isn’t that hard if you think about the important and relevant skills needed and pull it from everywhere, not just your work experience! We also spoke about how to stand out by networking (and some juicy tips using Linkedin), as well as the interview process and how to prepare!

What can you do with a low GPA?

How can you get a job or internship if you have a low GPA? Grades are not the end of the world; I did poorly on exams (I still do, I hate the “a or c” or “all of the above” questions), and your self worth is not determined by your grades. You are determined by the type of person you put out in this world. Not ever did my grades ever come into question in my job in #consulting. In fact most companies don’t even ask after your first job.

If you ARE trying to find an internship or job and you have a low gpa, what can you do then? Here are the tips I have for you that I personally did in school to maximize my chances for a great entry level job!

Which one would you try to do today? Which one have you tried before? Let me know in the comments!

I also did a full video on this topic, so if you’re interested in learning more, head over to my YouTube channel!
