The Career Development blog is for any Gustavus student who is unsure about the world after college. Looking for a job, creating a résumé and cover letter, and preparing for an interview are stressful and time consuming tasks, and they aren’t even all of what goes into finding the perfect job.
This blog is meant to help sort out and answer some questions that new and even experienced job hunters might have. By reading, researching, and testing various job hunting tools and websites, this blog hopes to save Gusties valuable time and take off some of the stress that comes with looking for a job. We know that Gusties are busy, so we sum up what’s out there so you can decide for yourself whether or not it is worth your time.
This blog is also meant to keep students up to date on important trends and news. By maintaining a current understanding of what employers want, we are able to pass that information on to you so that you can have the largest possible advantage entering your job hunt. Reading this blog will give you information on what jobs are most in demand, what the average salary is for a graduate, and how best to format your résumé to get an employer’s attention, among other things.
When it comes to finding a career, there are so many tricks to know and nuances to understand that it is nearly impossible for an already busy job hunter to master them all. Yet, hopefully with the help of this blog, you will be able to gain a firm enough grasp to be confident in your first steps after Gustavus.
