As college students, we are a group that takes our future seriously. We are not working hard for four-plus years to earn a degree and then not find a job, but in the current economic climate getting hired is certainly not a given. What can you do to keep this from happening to you or at least cope with it when it happens?
These and other issues will be addressed in the free April 6 edition of the campus magazine Oshkosh Insider.
- Learn the top 10 things not to do and say in a job interview
- 13 steps to getting a job
- Read personal stories from recent graduates who have been rejected from their ideal jobs and learn from their experiences
- Seven UW Oshkosh alumni share their stories of success and failures as well as frustrations along the way
You probably know that attitude is an important factor in your hireability as well as your own mental health. We give tips and strategies to help you stay positive if you are rejected.
Ever thought about going to graduate school? As more people than ever are attending four-year college, today’s bachelors degree is becoming more like yesterday’s high school diploma. Following this logic, a master’s degree is like yesterday’s bachelor’s. We address the benefits of going to graduate school, give statistics about how many UW Oshkosh students are going and why they are going or not. While it can be extremely helpful in some cases, this path is not for everyone and we list both the pros and cons of going to graduate school.
The goal is to succeed after life at UW Oshkosh, and the Oshkosh Insider could provide you with tools and tips that could be the difference between post-graduation success and post-graduation frustration.
