Here’s our top 7 career advice to get you started

Find a mentor, who can guide you, coach you, suggest the right career options for you, depending on your interests.

Identify your interests, that can help you pinpoint the career for you. Write your list of interests and then try to map the careers aligned to them.

Choose a role that makes you happy and lets you pursue your ambition. It is so important to feel satisfied at work. Research job positions and talk to a career counselor to help you.

Try different things,to help you learn about your likes, dislikes, and talents. Consider volunteering, attend community events.

Write a result-oriented resume and create a portfolio of your projects and experiences. We know this can be quite challenging, even matured professionals find it difficult to write their own CV.

Form relationships and ask for help. Create meaningful relationships with who you interact with, they could be your future referee, or introduce you to someone else. Stay in touch and ask for advice.

Have a schedule. This improves productivity and helps you to stay focused. Form a budget from early on, so that you are prepared for the real world. Have a development plan, with timelines and goals so that you can make the most of all the opportunities that come your way.
