Unusual ways to find a job
We have to take our hats off to the History Graduate who pounded Fleet Street with a sandwich-board offering himself on a free trial period of one month.
Employers with a sense of humor
We can also hat-tip the guy who hired him.
- But wouldn’t it have been better if he had a portfolio of his work online before he graduated?
- Wouldn’t if have been cool if he knew what he wanted to do?
- Wouldn’t it have been cool if he had had targeted 10 specific people and gone to them with the same offer?
Ways for students to get good jobs after graduation
I suppose telling students to start early and to work on their career path little and often is about as silly as telling them to work consistently throughout the year.
Some do though. @casperodj, @trudyYS, @dolphonia are well known in the community and they haven’t graduated yet.
None of the three has done anything eye-catching in a celebrity-way. They’ve just showed up and joined.
I’ll put my money where my mouth is too. If the History Graduate stumbles over this post, and wants a quick guide of online resources, the trick will be to comment below. The comment will reach me same day and I will reply.
And for people already doing everything they can, some stunning creative resumes.
