You can wing it for a date. You can wing it for study sessions. You can wing it with family and friends. But when it comes to our career, you don’t want to wing it.
For your first job interview, internships, volunteer opportunities, meetup groups, conferences, let’s talk about how can you go from winging it to getting more more intentional. Listen in on how you can show up prepared and stop winging it when it comes to your career.
A quick recap:
- Show up to career fairs and networking events knowing which companies are going to be there. Wear something that shows you’re taking this event seriously. And, most importantly, show up ready to speak your passion–practice speaking to your friends and family about what you want to do in advance.
- Spend a good 25 minutes researching the company before you apply or interview. Actually read their website, look for their mission, read their blog, and look up employees on LinkedIn to understand their career journey.
- Prepare questions, ask questions and get curious. Find out how you can add value!
