Some days it’s difficult to believe that this month marks ten years since I graduated from college because it feels like just yesterday I was walking on campus for freshmen orientation! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you know that I am a firm believer in pursuing big dreams but I’ll say this…it would have been really nice to have some help pursuing those dreams back when I graduated college. Instead I struck out on my own to find a job…and it did not go quite as I had envisioned! So when Fifth Third Bank contacted me to help spread the word about their Brand Of You campaign I couldn’t say yes fast enough! And while this is a sponsored post, all opinions are entirely my own and I couldn’t be more passionate about helping young adults find guidance as they leave college to pursue their big dreams.
-More than half of recent college graduates do not have full time jobs
-50% of jobs aren’t even posted online making job openings difficult to find*
-An average of 200 people apply for each job opening**
So what is the solution to being a recent college graduate who wants to pursue their dreams but is facing a difficult job market?
Job search coaching.
Why is this coaching worth it?
-All of the coaching is done virtually so you can do it from anywhere and with flexible scheduling you can fit it into your busy schedule
-You’ll receive interview prep/coaching and personalized resume editing so your resume stands out in the stack
And here’s the great news…recent college graduates have the opportunity to enter the Fifth Third Bank Brand of You contest for the chance to win personalized job coaching from NextJob (worth $1000). And even if you don’t win… everyone who enters gets access to NextJob’s proprietary online training toolkit…so it’s really a win for everyone!
Every week, 80 winners will be matched with a professional NextJob coach to help them get the job they want faster and more effectively than going it alone.
