You may be just graduating college, but as any adult will know, this is just the beginning. Some of you may have already planned things out. Others might have had things planned out for them. Others still may be stuck without a plan. Regardless of where you are at, good advice never hurt anyone and Cherry Mobile has a few words of wisdom that could actually help.

  1. Know what you need and want.

It’s one thing to go after a job you need and it’s another to choose a career you really want. Whatever your current situation calls for, be sure to side with the decision that both your head and heart agree on.


  1. Draft a straightforward CV.

Market yourself strategically by crafting a curriculum vitae that sums up what you have achieved, what you can do, and what you are looking for. Make it as straightforward as possible.


  1. Establish connections.

Start making connections as early as possible. By doing so, you can keep a list of people whom you can contact should you need a reference for a job or seek advice from regarding offers.


  1. Create your brand.

How you think, deal with other people, and act are the sole elements of what you are as a professional. Create your own positive branding and style so you can easily stand out among the pool of aspiring applicants.


  1. Find passion in whatever you do.

Never lose your sense of passion in everything that you do. Whichever path you decide to take, make sure to always be passionate on doing your job to achieve positive results.


  1. Believe that your dreams are bigger than your fears.

Don’t hesitate to push yourself to achieve something great. Live outside the box and continue to pursue your dreams. It might take you a little while to find your dream job but your hard work and perseverance will pay off in due time.


  1. Never stop learning.

Continue to challenge yourself and obtain knowledge even after school. Take short courses on skills you want to improve or develop.


  1. Do your research.

Before jumping on a job offer that lands on your hand, research about the job and company you would want to work at.


  1. Know your potential.

Invest your time on honing yourself and potentials. Work on your strengths but address your weaknesses as well.


  1. Enjoy as you work on your goals.

Keep a positive mindset and a joyful heart in everything that you do. This way, things could so much be easier to deal with.


Whatever career you would want to pursue, always choose to brave the odds and embrace a brighter future. Believe in yourself and in the beauty of your dreams!

I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
