“Coming out from university and going out into the market to find a suitable job for me, is a tough challenge. I know, when I do not have the necessary skills and experience that employers look for. I feel defeated early when I saw the job specifications. The requirements are way higher than what I would offer”.
The above situation is what faced by many fresh graduates. The challenge they have will always be matching job requirements with their skillsets and experience. How can you tackle such challenge when it comes to you going out to hunt for a job, after graduating?
Here are some tips and what you can do:
