The Career Contender – Introduction

The topic I have chosen to write about for the next 20 or so post is “Building a Better You: A recent college graduate quests for a job.” I figure that since I am going through the process and already doing research on it, that it would be a wonderful choice. My hope is that I can create a good resource for any one prospecting a new career. There should hopefully be tips for the young and 0ld , or at least a few refreshing points that one may have forgot. I created a rough table of contents that should give you an idea of where we will be going.

  1. Who am I?
  2. What do I want to do?
  3. Where do I see myself in 5 years?
  4. Resumes
  5. and
  6. Online Applications
  7. Cover Letters
  8. Interview – First Contact
  9. Interview – Preparation
  10. Interview – Appearance
  11. Interview – Composure
  12. Interview – Thank You Cards
  13. Interview – Call Back
  14. Interview – Basic Negotiating
  15. Interview – Contract Negotiating
  16. Interview – Finalization
  17. First Day on the Job
