So you’ve got a couple of weeks to complete your program at trade school and graduation is right around the corner. Trade schools are job-specific, so you’ve gained knowledge and experience in your industry and are looking for a valuable position. How do you get started?
Your next step should be to leverage your network to land you a job. It’s essential to tap into all of your resources when in the market for a job. Use your school, community, and Mia Share to guarantee a job after graduation!
1. School’s Career Services Department
To start off, your school likely has a career services department that can help put you on the path to success. If you are in need of guidance, ask an administrator to give you more information on what your school offers. Most career services teams provide resume development, job search tips, mock interviews, and more. They also provide a current list of open positions with local businesses and job placement services.
2. Local Community
Job searching can be difficult, but reaching out to those in your community or personal network can increase your chances of getting that position. As mentioned, your school can provide you with open positions with local businesses. Take it a step further and reach out to the business owner, or stop by; meeting them and introducing yourself personally can make all the difference. Your friends and family are also resources! It’s crucial to dig into your network and leverage your connections.
