End of an Era

21037756_732254460318937_880301144_oI genuinely can’t believe that it is already March. This school year has been a lot of work, but has also flown by so fast. It’s hard to think that in two months I will be finally done my college experience and off into the workforce.

When it comes to deciding how you want to enter the workforce after college, there’s a lot of options and I am definitely having a hard time deciding. Do I want to take some time off and travel or try and find a full-time career right after school ends? I always had the plan to go straight into a full-time career after school ends, but now do I want two part-time jobs instead? So many options.

There are a lot of options available to Conestoga students if you feel as though you are unprepared for a full-time career.

  1. Career Centre – the Conestoga Career Centre is open to all students and offers a ton of services to help students attain their dream career – for free!
    • Career Advising
    • Job Search Support
    • Employment & Career Planning Workshops and more
  2. MyCareer – Located on the left side of your MyConestoga home page.

I also check Indeed.com every single day. I like to stay updated with all the job postings and definitely recommend it. I would also recommend volunteering in your field of interest to add experience to your resume. It also shows that you care about your community and giving back.
