Hi Parents / College Students….
Coach Ned here with another tip you can live by. Working with college students, I find too many practice “tunnel vision” while looking for an internship and/or career job.
Companies look at hundreds of candidates when hiring so why wouldn’t you look at hundreds of companies while applying?
I hear this too often, “Well ABC Company said they may hire me so I wanted to wait to hear back before applying to other companies.”
My dear entitled, warm hearted, sweet tempered millennials; Please understand is that this is the business world and not everyone gets a trophy in this game! You have to be aggressive and assertive to be successful in business.
Go after all you can:
- The more companies you apply to, the better the odds that you will receive a positive response.
- Having multiple interview requests is a problem…A GOOD PROBLEM!!
- The more interviews you do, the more cover letters you write, the better you become at both.
It’s a competitive world out there ……be
ENERGETIC, RESOLUTE AND CONFIDENT
