Add experience to your resume by doing volunteer work.
Recent grads are
often frustrated because they cant get an good job without
experience but they cant get good experience unless they
get a good job. Volunteering is a helpful solution.
You have to do work your way up before you can start making a huge salary. You have to pay your dues. Youre not going to be hired for a six figure salary job just because you just completed a certification. You need some experience too.
Get a list of non-profit agencies and apply your skills by volunteering to help them. This approach will help you because it gives you an opportunity to get your hands dirty in the real world, by applying what youve learned in the classroom. Also, youll be able to confidently tell an interviewer, Yes, I have done that before.
As an added
benefit, Youll feel good about yourself because you will be
making a real difference and helping others.
Don't forget to ask for referrals! If you do a good job the charity might recommend you to others they know. The word will get out and you will network your way into a paying job somewhere.
