The biggest problem/mistake most people make is thinking that once they’ve got their degree they think they’re pretty much set and they can just go out and get a high paying job no problem.
I get it. Everyone tells you that a degree is your ticket to getting a good job.
So It’s Easy To Fall Into That Trap.
Many of my students get told this at the career center, oh yeah it will be easy you’ll get a job no problem… Then when they get out there it’s not as easy as they were led to believe..
And what’s more, let me ask you.
Does every who has a degree have the job they want? No!
In fact you’re facing a competitive market where everyone else also has a degree just like you do. Time Magazine even says that 85% of new grads are actually moving back in with their parents!
Which means that you could actually be hurting your career if you don’t learn the skills to put your degree to use.
So how do you get the high paying dream job that you want right away?
Well You use a technique called opportunity stacking. Opportunity stacking is where you generate your own job opportunities on demand instead of just taking whatever you can get or whatever crosses your path.
Opportunity stacking puts YOU in charge of your opportunities and puts you in a position to line up 3-5 interviews per week.
Because You need to have a plan in place for exactly how to get those job offers once you graduate, and while it’s completely possible, 95% of new grads do not have those skills or any plan at all.
Sitting in a classroom in learning mode is not giving you the skills you need and if you continue to believe that this is all you need, you could end up as someone who’s really smart on paper but works in retail or works at starbucks.
So let me ask you, do you really want to risk your success by continuing to hold that belief?
And not having a real plan in place?
By not using opportunity stacking to set yourself up for success right away?
OR do you want to be in that top 5% of grads that sees explosive salary growth in their first year because they have options?
