When you are in the final year of college, it’s the time to look at employment as one of the most important phases of life. Preparing for employment is equally important and there are various modes of such a preparation.
Academics and the subjects we study will not be sufficient for a career. There are certain prerequisites to a particular job like for instance a skill set. You should consider taking extra training out of your college for such skill sets. If an engineering student graduating out of college, you will need to join for some extra software training or hardware training based on what your job asks for
Next, understanding the employment and its rules are important. It is not just the work you do when you are employed. With it comes a lot of responsibility and benefits other than just salary. There is something called ‘employee rights’ which you should understand as an employee. An aspiring candidate should know to what extent they are exempt from employee rights. There are various online portals which help you understand these. I found here that I am exempt from employee basic rights only after I started working. This is a part of job satisfaction too because paid leaves and unpaid leaves should be in our count to manage finances.
Education teaches us the basic principles or theories of a job but there is a lot more to learn in the course of pre-employment training and continued learning will start only when you get into the actual job. Hence, it is important to check the various discussion forums which talk about the day to day happenings in a particular job. It can not only help you handle situations but also help you manage your career for a brighter future.
