How to find a good job as a graduate?

Almost all parents, sending their child to an educational institution, cannot wait until he goes to work. And it becomes financially easier for parents, and yesterday's troublemaker student turns into an independent and fulfilled person. But, as always, not everything is so simple.

After studying for five years at the institute that he chose himself, the child often declares that he does not want to associate himself with work in his specialty. So how do you find the job that will satisfy the graduate in all respects and how to succeed at your first?

Fathers and children. Greatly differing views on a good job

Yes, opinions on a good job vary from generation to generation. My parents, for example, believe that when you get your diploma, you get a job in your specialty, and you work until your retirement. But we all know that this is virtually unrealistic.

Parents prefer the "traditional" professions - teachers, doctors, accountants. But they forget that the scientific process is running fast, and the labour market is keeping up. The older generation may not consider logistics, web-designers and traders as frivolous professions, but they do bring real money.

Parents often want their child to earn a handsome wage straight away, but for children the experience of working in a prestigious firm and gaining the necessary knowledge are sometimes more important.

Disappointment from education

Many of us have had the experience of walking out of college with a red diploma and head held high, thinking that tomorrow employers will come knocking at your door, but it turns out that neither you nor your knowledge are needed.

Many firms don't really look at your diploma, they just ask "what can you do? And what can a person who has just stepped over the threshold of university know how to do? When and where he can practice, because no one will hire him without a degree? So you walk in a vicious circle.

Parents investing money in their child's education hope for a bright future. And it turns out that parents not only have to give their children an education, but also to find a job.

Advantages and disadvantages of the diploma

The pluses of our higher education are that it is in many ways universal. If you have a teaching diploma, you can easily find a job as a manager or even a banker. But there are also disadvantages. There is a paranoia about higher education in our country today. All parents believe that their child should definitely go to university, even if the child has no aptitude for learning.

That's how crazy bosses are born, who don't know themselves what they want from their subordinates. This is how the supply exceeds the demand for jobs. As a result, we have qualified economists and teachers in the markets.

There is no job that is not prestigious

To continue this thought, we should remember the children's song about the importance of all professions. When choosing a job, parents and children alike must understand that you can succeed in anything if you do what you really love.

And these are not just words. History knows many cases where simple professions have brought people success. For example, Buddy Valastro, a seemingly ordinary pastry chef, but he just loves his job and does wonders in the kitchen. Today, Buddy is known as the 'King of Bakers' from the show of the same name, popular all over the world.

And that's not to mention actors, dancers, singers who have been criticised for their work but have become famous and in demand in their professions.

Looking for yourself is not scary

What's done is done - whatever diploma you get, you have to live with it and put up with it. But what if you don't like the job you have, and the next one isn't very good. One thing is important to remember - it's not scary to change jobs. It is especially important for parents to realise this.

At work, all the circumstances are important - the salary, the attitude of management, the atmosphere in the team. If your child has been on the lookout for a few years, it's not scary at all. On the contrary, he gains the necessary experience and does not want to hate every morning for having to go to work.

And if a young person changes jobs once every year or a year and a half, a mum doesn't need to be soothed and disappointed in her child.

All's fair in the search

To find a good job for your graduate, use all methods, well within reason, of course. Think of old acquaintances, relatives and even your own colleagues. It is known that the best jobs are not put on the Internet or in newspapers, but kept "for their own people". You may be asked for a "thank you" for such a job. It is, of course, up to you whether to pay a bribe or not.

Personally, I have found that it is not worth paying for a job, even if you are promised a permanent position, a steady paycheck, etc. All the same you will have to work, you don't know how the relations in the team will develop, your boss can change and turn from a benefactor into a tyrant and there is no guarantee that you won't get fired. Is such a job worth the money and when to work it off?
