New Graduates

You went to college, earned your degree, and did everything “right.”

So why does the job search process feel like moving through cement?

new graduate













Previous generations could land a new job without a college degree or simply go into a place of business and shake hands and introduce themselves to the Hiring Manager. Those days are long gone.

The hard truth? Colleges and universities sell you a dream.

The dream is that all you need to do is graduate with a college degree, and jobs will await you.

I wish that were true. Instead, many new graduates face the classic catch-22: How the hell do you land an entry-level job with no experience if (nearly) every job requires experience?

While this paradox is infuriating, new graduates do get jobs.

A lack of traditional experience gives you an advantage.

We will work together to redefine what “experience” you offer and give prospective employers a damn good reason to hire you by flipping the script to focus on what you offer versus what you lack, such as:

  • Research experiences and capstone projects
  • Relevant internships and other part-/full-time work
  • Volunteer experience and campus involvement

Why use a certified resume writer over a college career center?

Many college and university career centers offer advice on resume writing. Unfortunately, the majority are limited in resources and still use outdated information that does not align with modern resume writing and personal branding standards. All of this works against you and the first impression that you want to leave on an employer.

Additionally, working with many clients in STEM fields, many career centers are ill-equipped to help you balance the technical and transferable aspects for difficult-to-fill science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or STEM-related positions.

Common challenges:

  • The promotion and recycling of the same old generic resume templates with the default Times New Roman font.
  • Little to no knowledge on the technologies used in the modern job market and how they affect the way resumes are read.
  • A lack of awareness on the crucial role that personal branding and social media (LinkedIn) play in the hiring process.
  • Little to no emphasis on how to effectively build and maintain a professional network and connect with recruiters.
  • No education on how to conduct a proper job search strategy or prepare for an interview.

You’ve worked hard for your degree. Let’s make it work for you.
