    • Asking the Interview Question: Show Your Interest in the Job

      Prove you’re looking for more than a paycheck We work to get paid. That’s a fact. And interviewers know that—but what they’re really looking for is genuine interest in the job. An interviewer wants to see an applicant engaged with the position and company, an individual with a certain expertise who understands the company’s mission, brand, and values. But how do you show you know all about those things if your interviewer doesn’t ask you? By asking the right questions! Here are a few ideas: I’m really interested in this position because of XYZ reasons. What does a typical day look like? Asking this question shows your interviewer two things. One, that you’re organized and want to be prepared on your first day, and two, that you want to know about the less glamorous, day-to-day moments of the job you’re applying for. This is also important information for you to know to gauge whether the job is a good fit. I was researching online and noticed that you recently completed …

    • Jobs You Can Get with Any Bachelor’s Degree

      That degree is shiny and new, but uh, now what? If you’re graduating this fall, congrats! If it’s not ‘til May, still, congrats! And if it’s in a few years? Yeah, congrats are still in order.

It takes a bit of learning and experience to get there, which means you might not end up in a job related to your major (at least not at first). Luckily, there are plenty of jobs out there that just require a bachelor’s degree, but nothing super specific. Let’s dig in! Financial Planner “AGH MATH! NO!” That’s probably what you’re thinking right? But being a financial planner is about so much more. Many financial planners have degrees totally unrelated to finance. A bachelor’s degree gets you the general know-how you need, while most of the job-specific stuff is learned on the job, …

    • Coping with Job Search Rejection

      Keeping your spirits high when interviews are down. Interviews are tough. Not getting an interview is even tougher. You can spend hours and hours just searching for jobs to apply for, then spend several more hours filling out applications. And all that work doesn’t even guarantee an interview. It’s natural to feel down; to want to give up. But you have to dust yourself off, roll up your sleeves, and dive into the job search again. Easier said than done right? Here are a few tips to keep things moving. Do Things You Enjoy Don’t let every day be a 24/7 job search. Concentration and drive are great, but you can only last so long before you burn out. If you like to bake, make cookies once in a while. Watch a TV show you love or take a trip to the movies. Go see a football or basketball game. Make sure you still have a life outside of the job search. Get Used to Hearing “No” HR people aren’t …
