What to Do If You Can’t Find a Job After College

Redefine Your Mindset

Feeling overwhelmed or fatigued at the thought of additional training? If you’re trapped in an “I’m Done” mindset, it’s crucial to shift towards a growth-oriented perspective. Celebrating your achievements, like graduating from college or completing a technical boot camp, is important. However, feeling burnt out is normal. Take time to rest, but recognize that your journey isn’t over. When overwhelmed, determining your next steps can be challenging. Let’s explore how to navigate forward.

Conduct a Skills Inventory

Let’s delve into your competencies, including soft skills (e.g., communication, leadership, teamwork), hard skills (e.g., technical software knowledge, quantitative abilities), and transferable skills (e.g., supervision, safety management from summer camp jobs). When you work with a Priority Candidates career coach we will work together with you to showcase your abilities effectively for the positions you desire.
