A 3 Minute Read for Students who are Thinking about Launching Their Careers During the Outbreak

Usually, graduates who receive their diplomas and degrees always have new jobs available for them in the job market and are fully prepared to launch their careers. However, due to the recent outbreak, their dreams are mere dreams as the markets are down and most businesses are shut.

Students who are graduating this year are thinking about whether to go for a virtual commencement ceremony or a delayed one. These graduates have no clear view of the future. They are looking forward to the virus being contained and the job market being opened.

Big problem for foreign graduates

Although it is equally essential for the natives to get jobs, some international graduates need to have a job to prolong their stay in the country. Most of them are nationals of poor countries and spent all the money they had for education. As the businesses are shut, and there is no room for internships and new jobs, these foreign nationals will face severe consequences due to the adverse situation.

Greater competition

Graduates who are confined inside their homes have some expectations of working part-time and are spending time on learning online skills while getting more creative with virtual networking. These graduates are always on the internet to find new jobs.

Although some companies are still hiring, competition is more robust than ever. The fresh graduates don’t stand a chance because these companies don’t want to risk themselves at the expanse of hiring a new graduate. At the same time, they have more experience people for the same job lined up for interviews.

Stay ahead of the game

Some HR companies have started new online programs for people who just got graduated. These programs are free to register and allow people to learn new skills and prepare for the upcoming future.

These companies are advising the students to get themselves registered for these programs and focus on what they want to do and what they want to be in the future.

Hendler Grunt, the famous career guidance expert, advised that the students must polish their skills and learn new skills as they will need these to enhance their resumes and urged them to refresh their LinkedIn accounts. She asked the students not to stress much about the future and encouraged them to figure out what they really want to with their life.
