You have come across several job employment adverts online or in print media. One thing that cannot miss in the job requirements section is minimum experience. You have finished campus or college like two months ago and you stumble across a job that needs the applicant to have a job experience of about 3 years. Despite you meeting the educational requirements, 3 years of job experience locks you out.
Most employers need people with specific years of job experience because they need an employee who will start working immediately once she or he has been employed. They don’t expect to employee a person and then start training him or her on how to do the job. So where do you get all those years of job experience after graduating?
Below are 3 ways through which you can get the job experience that employers are looking for.
Internships serve as a vital way of equipping you with practical working skills. The experience that you gain through internships is a solid background to your CV.
Always try to come up with ideas that are related to your course of study. For instance, if you are doing a communication course. Try opening a communication firm. It does not have to be so big. It does not have to be successful. But it adds value to you. Opening one will cost you not more than 4k for beginners.
Attend training camps
There are so many firms that are willing to train people in particular fields as a way of enhancing their customer relations. Attending such camps is vital but always attend those camps that offer trainings related to your course of study. For instance, if you are doing media course there are so many photography camps around.
I would wish to inform all my lovely readers who are still in campus that always learn with a mindset of creating your own job rather being employed. There are jobs, but the problem is that our poor education system is designed in a way that it produces a high number of unskilled graduates. Most graduates do not have the practical skills to handle jobs for the first time. There is so much theory taught in our schools.
