How To Succeed Post Graduation

how to succeed post graduation

Approaching the end of your college career is an exciting time, filled with crucial tasks to accomplish both for graduation and for easing the transition into a career. While there is a lot to do, you’ll find it simpler and easier if assignments are grouped by season. This way you can stay focused on the jobs that are pressing without worrying about spring duties in the fall. Graduation Source has made this easy by creating an infographic to help keep you on track.

For fall, make sure you’ve laid out your year and organized projects in order to acquire improved management skills, reduce stress and increase productivity. You’ll also want to make sure your course requirements will be fulfilled so that nothing prevents you from graduating on time. During winter, prepping a complete resume that competently demonstrates your skills and experience is crucial. This document could help you obtain an internship, whether you find it through professors, your college career office or elsewhere. In the spring, apply yourself with fervor to any internship opportunity by behaving professionally, soliciting feedback and working to gain the trust of your superiors. Once you’ve graduated, you’ll be ready for the summer – whether it’s spent working or taking a vacation – before moving on to the next step in your career.

The App Aided College Student [Infographic]

Smartphones are not a fad; it is a reality that they are here to stay.

If you’re still not convinced, consider this: 63.2% of Millenials accessed the Internet from mobile devices in 2012.

As Millenials use the mobile Web and smartphones more and more, it is not a surprise that advances in technology are revolutionizing the college campus. Libraries are more like study halls, instead of being places to find information. Because of this, the university will continue to be an environment that cultivates innovation.

From Massive Open Online Courses [MOOCs] that make online education more accessible at a lower cost, to online forums and social media channels that provide an unfiltered view of information; the app-aided college student is on the rise. Students no longer need to buy a long list of books for every class because they have access to all that information (and even more!) through a single smartphone. They are connected virtually all the time, if not through their smartphones, then through a broadband connection at a coffee shop or at home.

This infographic from the Campbellsville University Graduate & Professional Studies provides a breakdown of how technology is revolutionizing student learning at the college level.
