I recently graduate from a business major。 Now What?

The first thing you should do is to know yourself。 You could find it out by conducting SWOT analysis which will clearly illustrate the situation you are in

Swap Analysis for Recent Graduated Student 

Basically, you are a stressful young but lack of experience professional who is looking for career opportunities。 Ideally, the job should utilize your strengths and avoid touching the weakness points above。 Where are the opportunities then? In the Business / Marketing field! Anytime, you type in Business Admin / Marketing Assistant / Marketing Coordinator as keywords in job searching sites, you easily find out over 1000 openings – DO LET ME KNOW IF OTHERWISE

Should I continue looking jobs in Business / Marketing field?

Yes, you should! since

It is dynamic, constantly changed!

It is for young professional。

It needs everywhere; lots of openings。

It requires experience; but it requires talent more!

It has great potential。

Who is the most powerful department in the company? the marketing department! It consumes the majority of company’s budget since it serves the purpose to recruit company’s customers。

It is part of the core structure of company’s management team。 It is not a surprise that a lot of executives are actually from marketing department!

Is it a sales role? I don’t want to be a sales。

Definitely Not! There is a significant difference between sales and marketing。

Marketing activities include consumer research (to identify the needs of the customers), product development(designing innovative products to meet existing or latent needs), advertising the products to raise awareness and build the brand。 The typical goal of marketing is to generate interest in the product and create leads or prospects。

On the other hand, sales activities are focused on converting prospects to actual paying customers。 Sales involves directly interacting with the prospects to persuade them to purchase the product。

Am I the right candidate for such a Job?

Marketing is a field reserved for young professionals who are

well educated in various business related majors such as Economic, Finance, Business Administration, Commerce…。,

well developed with strong communication skills in verbal and writing, and

well trained with proper analytical skills + marketing tools。

If you are a new or recently graduated student from an university in North America, you pretty much fit in the profile。 A few things you need address are SKILLS and TOOLS

If it is as easy as you describe, why my classmates in Marketing major don’t get a job yet?

It is caused by the difference between academic study and skill trainings。 The knowledge from college makes the students overeducated but lack of practical skills。 A student from marketing major may be equipped with tons of perfect marketing theories, various analysis model and more than enough knowledge on operating big organizations; but he cannot even

In a word, to apply for a junior position of Marketing Coordinator, you marketing major classmates don’t have obvious advantages unless he possess practical skills。 

How can I become to be more competitive in business practice?

Like previously mentioned, anytime, you type in Marketing Assistant / Marketing Coordinator as keywords in job searching sites, you easily find out over 2000 openings – DO LET ME KNOW IF OTHERWISE。 The job market is hot without doubt, as a young professional, how should you prepare your readiness? Basically, you need cover the following 4 areas

You need start Resume / Interview preparation immediately; and follow the sequence above to prepare yourself in each subject areas。 Try to revise your resume every time when you complete a subject area。 It is not an easy job; but it is a must-do job! 

Do you have a plan I can borrow?

You bet! The most effective way is to studying intensively on these 4 subject areas with the pace of 1 subject area per week。 Following such a plan, you prepare your job readiness within 4 weeks; and expect to nail down an offer in another couple weeks。 While your university classmates are still confusing about what kind of jobs should they apply for, you already cast off to achieve your career goal!

What is next?
