College Lessons From My Junior Year

If you think you might change your mind or if you simply have no clue as to what major to choose, enroll in a college with a variety of solid programs of study. Doing so will ensure that you don’t have to change universities if you decide to change majors.

Produce. Go into the fields and pick your own fruits and vegetables at farms and orchards. Mom and dad did this and we loved it. The alternative is farmers markets. You will get better, fresher produce that will last longer at home. You will spend time with the kids having fun and save a bundle of money. It’s even more fun to get the kids to help with canning the produce.

Whether you are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or have already graduated, visit your undergraduate’s college or university career center or career placement office. They keep a library of guidebooks and information on different graduate schools that offer various programs. This is a great source of information for you to get a feel for the various graduate programs offered at various schools.

One way to do this is by sitting in on a few of the classes geared towards the majors you might consider. You don’t have to enroll in the courses to feel out your prospective fields of study.

What to do you love to do? Perhaps there is a field of study that really sparks your interest, or maybe you’ve taken courses that you really loved. Think about your past work experiences. What did you like and dislike about those jobs? You should also consider the hobbies you enjoy. Were you involved in any extracurricular activities? Transfer those hobbies and interests into your major and career choice.

The “employed” buddies tend to mask their envy of you in newer cars and lunches they don’t have to cut into bite-sizes for their lunch-mates. They do have more “things” than you, except one very intangible object; time watching their children grow. This factor is probably the most underrated and precious commodity in the work world. Sure, some places have “on-site” childcare, but that’s still lacking compared to kickin’ it at home with your mini-me’s.

Wear lighter clothing. You can remove the sweaters and boots. Make sure you have a nice white blouse or shirt to wear under your blazer or dress jacket.

Improve Your Job Searching Attitude

A broad resume — that tells the person with whom you’re meeting the most about you. You’ll use this for about half of your job conversations. It’s best for a general conversation where there’s no job opening at stake, and the person with whom you’re talking doesn’t work in one of your career fields of interest.

Contact the people above. Tell them you’re looking for a new career opportunity, and ask if they can refer you to other contacts as well. You never know who might know someone who knows someone who may hire you.

I took a chance looking up what a school district had to offer for jobs. My image of a school was that it was only for teachers, cooks, and custodians. But to my surprise there were all kinds of jobs that fit many areas such as psychology, communications, computer science, speech, sports, and languages. And no, these aren’t teaching jobs either. I was amazed at what I found.

Now it is up to us millennials to go out and start job hunting. Maybe take a little more of the burden off of our parents. No one should give up the freedom of a life on their own, paving their own way just because of some hard economic times. So when it comes time start digging for a career after graduation use the resources available to their fullest extent. For instance the career center at the school your attending probably has excellent services to offer. While they can help also do some active research of your own and maybe even call potential employers or send in a resume.

Schedule about 25-30 hours a week to do your job search. This includes any job search activity you spend time on, including researching companies, looking at online job listings, and attending networking events.

“Many graduates.reported they would have done something differently in college if they had to do it over.been more careful when selecting a major. When asked what they would have chosen instead, 40% of the sample said they would have chosen a professional major, like education, nursing, or social work” (Stone, Van Horn, Zukin 24).

These are just six job ideas for people with a degree in psychology. Be sure to read “Jobs and Career Ideas for Psychology Majors” for some more suggestions. If you are still in college, it might be very wise to do some volunteer work. Read “Psychology Volunteer Work: Volunteer Job Ideas for Psychology Majors” for advice.

Update your contact information with email and phone Only use contact information that is completely separate from your companies contact information.

5 Ways To Help You Look For A Job As A Certified Nursing Assistant

Do you enjoy helping children? Would you like to play an important role in the life of a child? You might consider becoming a nanny. This is definitely an unique career option for someone with a degree in Psychology. You can find one agency that hires nannies here. You might also search on Yahoo for “nanny jobs”.

You can make any job turn into something big. You may start out in the mail room, but who said you had to stay there. Getting your foot in the door with a company is a wonderful start. Once you’re in a company you want to work for, you can apply internally and prove your abilities for promotion.

Next be sure to drive carefully. Try not to panic. That is extremely difficult. You just want to be with your child or loved one. We prayed continuously on the way there. We didn’t even know at this point which hospital they were taking him to. We got a call from the hospital telling us which one he was at. They also got verbal permission from us to do what they needed to, if they had to do something before we got there.

You may ponder how “the employed” could feel jealous? After all, they are “bringing home the bacon” and living up to that most cherished of egotistical titles, “provider.” Please, give yourself a break. We live in a period of social role transition. “Old school” paradigms are being turned into powder and you’re in the crucible. If your dad was off at work while mom “raised” you (which makes you sound like a crop, by the way), then you are part of the outdated “good old” days. Those are the same days when girls weren’t allowed in the school career center and boys were not allowed into home economics classes.

Call up friends and family members. Get in touch with friends of friends. Spend more time at the clubs and organizations you belong to. You never know what kind of doors they can open for you.

Get carded. Writing your phone number on a cocktail napkin or ATM receipt is cute at a party, but it sends the wrong message when you’re networking professionally. Show that you are prepared to meet people by having business cards at the ready. All you need on the card is your name, a phone number (which can be a cell phone), and an email address. I am thoroughly impressed when I meet a student who has cards. It shows maturity, foresight, and an eagerness to have the appropriate tools for the working world.

You’re out there, doing the best you can (or you think you are doing the best you can), but jobs are not easy to find. Statistics vary, but I’ve heard that there are anywhere from 4-8 people for every job (depending on your location and field). It’s not a “come as you are” job market.

Don’t ever forget that you usually get out of something what you put in (that annoying “you reap what you sow” adage that your grandfather might have told you, while he was sitting with straw in his teeth and a spittoon next to the rocking chair). If you go to events on campus, keep meeting new people, attend lectures that aren’t even required (gasp!), and maybe even do some community service, you’ll find the whole experience much more rewarding. You’ll feel like a part of the community, instead of just a student.
