Recent graduates are looking for employment and the competition is stiff in this tough economy. New grads are competing not only against other grads, but seasoned employees who have lost their jobs due to downsizing.
Something a recent graduate can have to their benefit over a seasoned employee is a willingness to listen, learn, and be trainable. Often employers want someone who they can mold to the ways of their company rather than have someone ‘rock the boat’ with the way they used to do things.
Have a positive attitude and open mind during the interview. One of my favorite sayings is, “Attitude, not aptitude, gains altitude”.
Best wishes for much success!
