Career Guidance

Edited BY: Nasir Lotiya.

It is not enough to do your best; you must know what best to do, then do your best. No one can go back and change a bad beginning, but anyone can start now and create a successful ending. Heated gold becomes an ornament. Beaten copper becomes wires. Changing the face can change nothing but facing the change can change everything. Do not compare your life to others; you have no idea what their journey is all about but if you found something useful try to do it. Get rid of anything that is not useful, beautiful, or joyful. Do not forget your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your family members and friends will. So stay in touch. Over prepare, then go with the flow.( Dhara jo behti he milkar rehti he… tu bhi dhara banja fir duniya se dol….) Do not wait for tomorrow; start it today.

Job Searching.
Letter-writing skills are essential for job searching. An excellent cover letter and a Thank You letter often make a difference in whether or not you are considered for a position. In addition to the main course, sometimes a few short-term courses play a major role in our career. In addition to Engineering courses, I joined the “Technical Report writing” course (3 months. It was very helpful. The most critical question to ask oneself is: Do I have a passion for this field of work? If the answer is Yes, then the job becomes your passion and can be developed further into a hobby. With this attitude, your work becomes a passion and a hobby. This is the ultimate successful job searching path to pursue.

Unemployed graduates must change their mindset. From my experience, every employer is hungry to hire multitasking employees as well as good learners. If you are looking for experience, please do not care about your salary. A good salary and a good position will come if we can prove to our employer that we are good in all aspects. So, please change your orthodox mindset.

Some items to take note of during job hunting: know the company’s location, the job requirements, and responsibilities. Besides, survey the company; learn its history, industry, products, and stability to avoid joining a company where you will be unhappy later. Information from friends and company websites will help us make better judgments and decisions before we apply.

Do not judge a job by the pay and do not ever expect very high pay. If you are offered a job even though the pay is low, do it first to gain the experience. Never put all your eggs in one basket. Always apply for a few jobs and not rely on just one. However, do not apply for too many either until you cannot keep track or take control of the applications.

Resume(CV)
Nowadays, many employers are seeking people that have the experience to work with their companies. So in your resume, please state clearly your job experiences. Do not feel shy to write about your experiences, even though of a few months. Always remember that real working experiences are worth much more than your academic transcript. The tip is to focus on several relevant strengths on the job you are applying for and keep them concise. Remember, quality better than quantity. Check for spelling accuracy. Be consistent with the layout throughout the entire Resume. Have someone else read and comment on it before printing the final copy.

A resume is the first impression of you! A bad resume gives a bad impression. A good resume gives a good impression. Whenever you write a resume, keep your language simple and organized. A good resume must not have any typo error. Keep your resume to the point and stress the important facts and figures that relate to the job you are looking for. Include IT-savvy items such as the use of spreadsheet and word processing software and other technical software for the relevant post. One’s strength in the language(s) and courses attended must be included, besides the academic credentials.
