How to Survive Post College Blues

We've heard enough about anxiety and depression that result from transitioning from your home to college, but what about the other way around? Getting used to life in college can be challenging because students are not adjusted to the “crazy” schedules and lack of family support present at college. However, once they have accepted the change and actually started enjoying it, they won't like going back to the life they came from either.

This is true for many students who experience what is called “post-graduate blues”. College to real world transition can be just as stressful where you are back to a life of order, sobriety, and individualism.

Here’s how we think you can beat the post-graduate blues and transition into the real world.

(1) Consider a Gap Year : Many students nowadays are choosing to take a year off after graduation just to enjoy the only time in their life they are actually “free”. Immediately going back to the boring 9 to 5 schedules, bosses, and tons of hard work can be overwhelming after a four-year long -- or even longer -- intensive program that requires no less hard work. Enjoy the year doing your favorite activity. It could be travelling, volunteering, teaching English, or other adventurous or useful experience. 

(2) Develop a Hobby : Don’t be afraid to “do what you've always wanted to do”. Heck, it could be anything from hunting to fishing, painting or even gardening. Reacquaint yourself your passion that was probably the last thing on your mind during your busy college life. Sometimes, the hobby you choose can become a part-time profession. You might even realize that your proposed field of interest is a little “off”, and that you talents and skills lie elsewhere. It’s never too late to change your mind about the job you love! 

According to the Washington Post, only 27% of college grads have a job that is related to their major. Additionally, only 62% or employees have a job that requires a degree!

(3) Surround Yourself with People :College campuses are filled with fun activities and friends. One of the most difficult parts of the post-college transition is not being around your friends anymore. Similar to family, friends become a source of support necessary to continue with your life and the mundane obligations it requires. For many, this can be quite frustrating, especially if they were used to doing everything with a roommate or friends. It is important to realize that this is part of life and that everyone has to go their own separate ways eventually. 

A way to deal with this is by surrounding yourself with new people who are also willing to be “family” or your friend. Take the initiative to build new relationships with people you enjoy being around. Your blood relations, new co-workers, and any “member” of a club you recently joined are examples of potential candidates.  

(4) Just Get Busy : As stated by William Blake, “A busy bee has no time for sorrow”. This couldn’t be truer! Depression can be result of over thinking. Don’t allow yourself time to “over think” by indulging in the next best busy job around. 

The best way to stay“busy” after graduation is to find a job. Ask your University to polish your resume, attend as many job fairs as you can, and keep yourself updated with the University job offer page(s). 

(5) Accept Change : Finally, it is important to accept things the way they are. Change is difficult no matter when or where it occurs during your lifetime. The best way to deal with it is to fully accept it -- and even embrace it when the time comes.

Steer Clear Of These 5 Rookie Mistakes During A Phone Interview

A lot of people do not take telephonic interviews very seriously; nobody have to be in professional clothes, look their best, face the hiring manager or drive all the way to the company’s office for the interview. But, a phone interview is not as easy as it may sound. There are equal chances of you blowing a telephonic interview as you can blow a face-to-face interview. You need to make sure that you avoid the following few mistakes while giving an interview on call with the prospective employer :

Not Researching Well About the Company

Research is the first thing you need to do as soon as you are informed about the interview. The employer may think you are not interested in the job if you sound least bothered about the company and its details. Suppose you're applying to a dissertation writing firm, and you get an interview call from them. You won't be able to respond to their queries well if you haven't done your research.Therefore, research the company well so you may ask and answer questions accordingly.

1. Bad Communication Skills

Among many other things, the hiring managers look for exceptional communication skills. It is very important to be able to explain yourself well during an interview and clear your points effectively, both of which are not quite possible if you lack good communication skills. The skill becomes all the more important if the job duties include being a team member. Keep following things in mind while giving the interview :
  • Whatever you are asked, reply confidently.
  • Keep a straight posture by sitting in a good chair or stand up while talking.
  • Talk slowly and not in a hurry.
  • Nobody likes mumbling. You can be silent while you take time to think and reply but do not, at any cost, say ‘it’s like..’ or ‘ummm..’. 

2. Engaging In Lengthy Conversations And Replies 

You may have studied in school, went to high school, attended college or university, volunteered or did a small internship but the hiring manager taking interview on the call does not need to know all the details and long stories. Your life would have been a roller coaster but you need to keep in mind that the employer has very little or no interest in your stories. Usually phone interviews last for 20 or 30 minutes, and you surely do not want to run out of time by talking unnecessarily.

3. Using Wrong Tone During The Phone Interview

Employers can see your attitude, facial expressions, emotions and body language while you sit in front of them during an interview whereas the phone interviews only leave the impression of your tone and how you reply to the questions. Always try to sound friendly by using the nicest tone on the call because even if you are not talking in a rude tone, the person on the other end may perceive it that way since he cannot see your facial expressions.

4. Sitting At A Place Full Of Distractions

Find a place that is quiet and clear of all kinds of distractions to have a telephonic interview. Make sure you are not sitting close to a baby who can cry any moment, no kitchen sounds at the back, no traffic noises and no pets around. Also, turn off the call waiting option in your phone as the beep may distract you during an interview. You may be good at multitasking but as far as a phone interview is concerned, you may lose focus on even the smallest distraction.

Giving a successful phone interview is no rocket science. You just have to be careful and not make any of the mentioned mistakes. Apart from everything else, make sure that you always keep a notepad while giving such an interview. You might want to note down some details or brief notes for future correspondence with the same interviewer.

Cover Letter: Key to the success of a resume

Cover_Letter_Success_Resume
One of the most important elements that play a crucial role in the success of a resume is the cover letter. It helps an applicant to express him or herself in an effective manner and present things that they cannot write in their resume. It creates a way for a resume to get selected for further evaluation in an application process. Saying this will not be wrong that it is a key element for the success of a resume. This is why; it needs to be written in an impressive manner. Discussed below are few important things about the effectiveness of a cover letter which will help you know why it is important and why you should write it in the best possible manner:

Why sending a cover letter with resume is important?

In today’s time, most of the job applications are submitted online in which an applicant is required to fill an online form or to attach their resume with the job application. In both ways, there is a separate column or an attachment option for the cover letter. Most of the people don’t consider this option important, therefore they don’t fill that column or attach a cover letter with their application because of which their resume fails to get recruiters’ attention. Know that a cover letter helps you to grab the attention of the readers. It is the first thing that a recruiter checks about a job application. You might think that recruiters hardly see what you have written, but it is not true. They do check your cover letter because it shows things that you cannot express in your resume. It reflects your personality. This is why; you must send it with your resume.

Gather information about the company and job: 

It is essential for you to get complete and detailed information about the company and the job vacancy you are applying for. It will help you in expressing yourself in your resume according to the company’s requirements. You can easily get this information from the company’s website or their Facebook and Linked In pages. You can also contact their employees and ask them about the criteria followed by the company for hiring new employees. It will help you know that how you must present yourself in the cover letter and what are the things you must consider while writing your letter.

Give an impressive introduction to your letter:

An impressively written introduction helps in grabbing the attention of the recruiters. So, make sure you give an effective opening to your letter. Write about the job you are applying for and why you are suitable for this job. Don’t include any kind of unnecessary details as it will create a bad impression on the recruiters.

Proofread:

Always proofread your cover letter before submitting it. Know that a single or even a minor mistake can lead your cover letter towards rejection so make sure you correct all the mistakes before submission. Proofreading helps in correcting mistakes, including structural, grammatical and spelling mistakes and makes a paper look well-written.
