looks different than just a year or two ago. For the past few
years, Mitchell Technical Institute graduates have been riding on the
shirttails of a booming economy. Even today, the job outlook for upcoming
graduates looks promising . . . but, the fact still remains, in either a
shaky economy or in a booming economy, finding a job may require as
much time and energy as working at a job once you have one.
It’s true: opportunities are not as
plentiful as they were just a couple of years ago. Even if you are in
high-demand career, the job is not yours for the asking. You will have
to measure up to an employer’s image of the perfect candidate. Even
when employers are desperate to fill positions, they will not sacrifice
their standards or hire someone they feel is not the candidate
they expect to find. You must prepare yourself for the job search!
If you are in a career that will likely contain a lot of competition
for the available jobs, you will need to be even better prepared to
sell yourself. What can you do to make yourself more
marketable and stand out from the crowd of candidates? First, you
must realize that landing a job is your responsibility, not someone else’s. You must prepare and sell yourself!
