The dream job. It’s everyone’s goal at the conclusion of college. If you’ve had a successful college career, then you’re (more than likely) due a pretty great first job, maybe even the dream job.
It’s ingrained in us from the moment we step foot in college – land a good job, the job you want. What other reason do you have to be here other than go do the thing you were meant to do, or really want to do?
You knew this, but it turns out only the 10-percenters get what they want (right off the bat). And if you’ve got a shoddy GPA, or are not the most stellar candidate, then don’t be surprised if that dream gig doesn’t come to you.
The point of this article really, is to illustrate how challenging it is to get the job you want post-college, and in doing so, hopefully get you to start working on it now, rather than later.
