As a recent college grad of a 3 year diploma course in science I am no facing the reality of finding a job. What is your advice get the interview and then land the dream job I went to school for?
keep on keeping on.
job market is rough, but the main thing to do is keep applying to jobs. where i started out teaching, the call-back rate was something ridiculous, like 5% or 10% or something (10% is actually pretty good in comparison to other fields) and this was 8 years ago so i can’t even imagine what it is now. it’s frustrating to put out 100 applications and maybe get a call back on 5 but you know, that’s what you gotta do.
have someone look over your resume, make sure it’s appropriate and fits the jobs you’re applying for. don’t forget to tailor your resume / cover letter to each job, highlighting the skills and responsibilities they’re looking for (with the appropriate buzzwords included!).
think about taking internships if that’s a possibility (both availability and financially speaking for you - i won’t get into the problems of the concept of internship in general here).
i’m not sure whether you mean you want the dream job now or you want at least a foot in the door to work your way to your dream job. depending on what you mean by dream job, think about other routes to get to that. And remember that no one starts off as a high-flyer, lots of people have to start from the bottom and work their way up. don’t be above that, remember you still have a lot to learn and you still have to pay your dues.
hope that helps!
