Life after Graduation: Universities Should Help Students in Employment

Now most universities promise their students the employment assistance.

And many wonder how exactly this happens? Or is it just empty promises necessary to attract a student to your university? And if this is true – how exactly can a university help its graduate with a job search? Yes, indeed, many universities promise such assistance to their students, but only major U.S. or UK universities actually help their students, while others proudly ignore their promise.Some universities carry out special training classes at which students are taught how to behave properly in an interview: what to say, how to dress, how to stay, and also how to write a resume correctly. Ask anyone who has had an interview to find out how relaxed they felt when talking to their potential leaders. And 99% will answer that they were lost, could not pull them together and answer the most basic questions, because they did not know what to expect at the interview and were very worried about it. So such training gives students self-confidence. But leading U.S. and UK educational institutions also organize job fairs, which give their graduates truly unique opportunities to find a profession. Now I want to share how exactly such fairs are held. Employers are given profiles of graduates of this educational institution. Basically, these profiles are sorted by specialty. Then comes the creative part (some consider it superfluous since valuable time “could be stolen†that could be spent on communication between students and company representatives). After that, employers make stories about their companies and vacancies, which are currently free. And only after a direct presentation, students get the opportunity to communicate with representatives of firms, companies, and organizations. As a result, many students are invited to internships. Also, almost any university has a career center. Only now, many universities leave this point only in words. Leading universities have quite developed career centers. Any student (naturally, of this educational institution) can apply there and they will be provided with information about available vacancies. Today, universities should have a career center. The university actively cooperates with the largest companies and organizations that are constantly replenishing their staff. Here the student has the opportunity to get a job with the most respected companies in the country. Also, large universities often hold seminars where leading companies advertise their products and advise students on all issues of interest to them. For example, such seminars are not uncommon at Yale or Harvard, as Google regularly holds presentations there. In Western countries, scholarships are being introduced more and more, when the largest companies pay the best students, thereby motivating them to come to work specifically for them. Thus, you see that most educational institutions still provide assistance to their students in finding employment. But all the same, leading universities have more of such opportunities since they have agreements with large http://writingproject.fas.harvard.edu/files/hwp/files/bg_writing_english.pdf companies and organizations. It is essential to help students to get a job after they graduate because it is necessary to provide them with the opportunity to succeed.
