Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing a few reasons why you should consider speaking with a career advisor while you are still in college. Your college likely has many resources to help you succeed and find an amazing and rewarding career after graduation, so it is especially important that you take advantage of these resources and use them to your best ability. Below I share a few reasons why career advisors can be helpful to you in your career planning process!

Job searches

Career advisors can make you aware of the many available job opportunities in your area or desired location after graduation. They can make your job search so much easier and provide information you wouldn’t have been able to find on your own.

Resume building

Interview skills and confidence building

Advisors can help you learn how to prepare for an interview effectively and what kind of questions or information you need to know before job hunting. This can in turn make you feel more confident in your process and transition to post-graduation life.

Networking

Lastly, advisors also often have connections with many companies and people who you may be interested in working at or with. The ability to network is so crucial for getting a job in the 21st century. Advisors can help you learn more about the process and provide you with the research and support to get started.
