In last years of engineering course, engineering students start getting worried about what to do after completing the course. There are plenty of career opportunities waiting for you outside your college. All that you need to do is to grab some knowledge regarding these jobs and invest some time in learning the skill required in these jobs. Having clear knowledge about what you want to do in your life can help you in landing successful career.
Below we have given some ideas which you can consider after completing your BTech course.
The first piece of advice is that it’s fairly normal. Most of them think there’s some anxiety that ‘It’s only me,’ but it’s not. There are a lot of people who are in the same boat like you. That’s a vital realization, because the more demoralized you get, the harder it is to make a great impression on a prospective employer.
If you’re not working typical office hours, act like you are, and make job hunting your full-time gig, because failing to stay on some sort of schedule could be seriously affecting your day to day tasks, consequently, the effectiveness of your job search.
It is recommended that waking at the same time each day, and showering and getting dressed as if you were going to work. Have a clear to-do list every day. If you start considering your job search like a full-time job, it’ll only increase your chances of finding the right role for you.
It will be useful that getting in touch with your career services office. Many of these services will provide everything from free resume consultations to ongoing job search support through phone or Skype appointments. It’s like having a free career coach who also gets regular behind the scenes job leads from other alumni and it can’t get any better.
Your friends or known people are another great source of potential referrals and leads. While many of your peers may not be in a position to help you, they can help you in finding more established alumni through online or face to face alumni networking groups can be helpful, too.
Deal with your emotions. Don’t overlook the emotional component to this experience. Being unemployed or underemployed can take a toll on your self-esteem. So, the longer the situation goes on, the more it can affect how you come across in interviews. Think about creating a “developmental network” a group of roughly five to seven trusted mentors, advisers, and professional friends who can give you both the psychological support and the professional advice you need.
The most important thing is to keep going. Graduates in today’s time are in a relatively healthy job market, so it’s often a matter of persistence to find just the right fit.
