  • The Skinny Version of Recession-Proof Graduate

    1. 1. The Skinny Version of Recession-Proof Graduate Jessica S. Santascoy’s skinny on Charlie Hoehn’s Guide to Getting any Job Within a Year of Finishing College
    2. 2. work for free • choose a project that you want to do • set a discrete amount of time you’ll work on the project
    3. 3. work virtually • you can work with anyone in the world • you can focus on work without the distraction of commuting, dressing for work, or office politics
    4. 4. choose • companies strategically • work that is fulfilling-you only have one life and you’re living it now • skills you want to further develop
    5. 5. don’t • use electronic job boards • compete with people with more experience than you
    6. 6. do • build a portfolio • network • learn stuff on the internet • understand this isn’t going to be easy
    7. 7. be really good • at a few things • at researching the people & companies with whom you want to work • at figuring out what the company needs
    8. 8. gain trust • tell the employer there are no hard feelings if s/he doesn’t like your work • blog so the employer knows about you • distinguish yourself with free work
    9. 9. be realistic • you might need to work on projects after you get home or on weekends • you need to budget time & money • know when to ask for paid work
    10. 10. my 2 cents • these tips can work even if you’re over 50 • adjust the tips to suit your personality • get a day job while building your portfolio • you’ll be scared
