Searching for the Right Job After College

Searching for the Right Job After College
  • Opening Intro -

    Each year, soon-to-be college graduates breathe a sigh of relief as they hand in their last exam, research paper, or project.

    The hard work has paid off and the end is in sight as they eagerly await graduation day.


While some college grads have internships lined up after college, some may even have a job waiting for them once they enter the “real world”. Whether a recent college grad is searching for the job of his or her dreams or something that will help cover student loan payments, there are certain things that college grads should consider when browsing the job field:

Well-Paid Position

If you ask any recent college grad what he or she is looking for in a job, it’s likely that a majority of them will say, “money” and who doesn’t want to be paid well for working hard? While it’s a great goal to go after the job of your dreams or one that is related to your major, don’t brush off job opportunities that are not at the top of your list or even on your radar.

Many people will argue that in our economy (even though it’s improving), that job seekers can’t be too picky. While you shouldn’t sell yourself short, don’t pass up a well-paying job if you think it’s something you can handle and it fits some of your other criteria; even if it is just a starting position.

Job positions that are far from your dream position may end up surprising you and you may even end up loving what you do. If anything, it will help you keep on top of debt and it can create important networks and skills that will make you even more employable in the future.

Job Safety

Almost all job seekers are looking for a job that is secure, but how about safe? Although occupations are deemed “safe” and many of us may take our safety at work for granted, there are plenty of jobs that are more dangerous, putting employees at risk for an injury.

According to worker’s compensation attorneys at Hasner Law, getting hurt on the job can be life changing, forcing you to stay at home with a serious injury, mounting medical bills, and a lot of stress and worry. For many college graduates, facing “real life” bills like student loan payments, getting injured on the job is the last thing that they need.

Anyone in any occupational field can be injured on the job, but when you are looking and interviewing for jobs, make sure that you are aware of any dangers that may occur on the job. Not only should your prospective employer have a safety plan implemented in the workplace, but they should also have workers’ compensation coverage for its employees.

One of the best ways to stay safer on the job is by avoiding a dangerous career, but always remember that a work-related injury can happen at any time and often without warning.
