Student - Career Challenges Post Uni
Last edited 17/08/2017 - 02:21
So recently I have been really thinking about my career and my future.
I have almost completed my commerce and arts degree at UNSW but have had difficulties securing a summer internship or an entry level role, despite my experience and good grades.
To date, the part time roles I have done while doing full time university include:
- Internship at a private bank that serves the military. (4 months)
- Marketing co-ordinator for two brands (B2B/B2C) in an FMCG environment.(6 months)
- Analyst at one of Australia's leading media companies (1 year)
I believe I am also socialable and have great communication skills from my involvement with volunteering, sports and university societies. I have also spent a lot of time improving my resume and cover letter (for each job app).
I'm not sure where I am going wrong, but I know I should not give up on job searching. I'm eager to learn and am open to any feedback or advice.
Thanks so much!
