12 Tips For College Grads Entering The Workforce:

Congratulations! Graduation is behind you. 
Now, all you need to do is get out there and start doing what you've dreamt about. 
But don't expect not to face some challenges.

Here are a few top tips for graduates fresh out of college:

1. Find Ways To Build Your Credibility And Value:
Gain experience by volunteering in a way that uses your skills, take initiative in proposing projects, and put your hand up to take on new challenges.

2. Make Mistakes, Then Learn From Them:
We learn more from our failures than our successes, so make a lot of mistakes early on when the stakes are lower, and soak in the learning.

3. Find A Mentor:
Secure an internal and external mentor early in your career! 

4. Discover What 'Soft Skills' Need Work:
Take time to understand your personality and learn what "soft skills" you need to improve.

5. Give To Get:
Grow a reputation as a giver and a helper

6. Dress To Match The Culture:
Make sure your wardrobe represents the brand of the company, especially if you want to grow in leadership.

7. Switch Your Focus:
As a student it was all about you, employers will hire you for what you can do for them, not vice versa.

8. Cultivate Patience:
Cultivating patience will help you avoid burnout and stay positive, while also being a compassionate and supportive teammate and employee.

9. Be Coachable And A Team Player:
Many of your colleagues or managers will get frustrated with you if you come to work thinking you already know everything, and don't want to do grunt work.

10. Identify Your Point Of Distinction:
What is so unique to you that you'll be remembered among everyone else? Express that element into everything, from your resume to your communication.

11. Use Strong Verbs To Describe What You Do:
Understanding your natural strengths and communicating them clearly helps others value you more.

12. Be Agile And Continuously Learn:
Pay attention to developments in your industry for both threats to your work and career plans, as well as opportunities that will open up in the future.

Prayerfully these tips were helpful. Please feel free to share any tips that worked for you.

Students should know that study is important for understanding not just to score numbers and pass any test. If you study only to pass a test and score numbers, you will just get it, not the other things you want to in your life. So make study reason for success.
