Final year

Final year checklist

As you approach the end of your degree, forming a strong and professional network becomes crucial. It’s now time to put yourself in front of prospective employers with a stellar résumé and a strategy to ace that interview.

Build your network

I got valuable tips and advice from the CareerConnect conference. I am absolutely certain the priceless advice will be of immense help in the future. The best part of the whole event was when I got the chance to interact and network with the panellists and many of the alumni on a one-to-one basis.

Know how to network

Professional networking is a two-way interaction meant to increase your social connections to open doors. Simply put, it is about asking people in a job you like, how they got there. Most people love to share their career journey and the process of asking them to share theirs will help you with yours. Networking can be fun. To get started, here are three simple tips:

  • Tip 1: Networking should be a two-way conversation, so make sure you ask questions and don’t just talk about yourself.
  • Tip 2: Have a clear idea of your career goals. It’s easier for someone to help you if you know what you want.
  • Tip 3: Don’t be afraid to ask people how they got their role(s). People enjoy talking about this and you’ll get some great tips.
