Stand out in a professional job market!

 

As a college senior can you list the abilities you have that will make you a stand out candidate in a competitive professional marketplace?  As explained in my last post, Candace is ready to examine her abilities as well as the job market opportunities following the suggestions she found in Think To Win.  An honest evaluation of both her personal abilities and the employment environment will help her to narrow the type of position that fits her needs.

Candace’s wants to find an entry level position where she can learn and advance personally and professionally. Her research shows that her BA in Communications along with her social medial expertise positions her within a wide range of today’s businesses and organizations.  Her strong interpersonal communication skills have made her confident in networking and leaving a strong on and offline presence. Her recent internship has helped build a resume displaying her relevant experience and it has enhanced her professional connections.

Granted, Candace knows she has some weak areas to work on like her public speaking stage fright and her need to be a perfectionist. She knows she can improve on these over time. To start, she plans to take a public speaking class which will help with her speech nerves.

Examining the opportunities in the marketplace Candace finds her advantages include her expertise in social media and the growing opportunity for young creative minds in the workplace. As Boomers retire and Gen Xers move up, entry level positions for Millennials seem to be opening up. While Candace realizes there is the threat of competition from the multitude of grads with similar skills and degrees; the challenge of making herself the best candidate is one she can deal with.

At this crucial point in Candace’s life when she is ready to move into her first professional position; she sees her online presence and her communication expertise as competitive advantages. Her research shows there are opportunities to explore in a number of different fields where her youthful enthusiasm and knowledge can benefit her and her future employer.
