Realities for New Grads Entering the Workforce
As a new graduate, entering the workforce can be very intimidating. Post-secondary institutions place a strong emphasis on academic performance, leaving new graduates feeling as if they are lacking the skills required for successful entry into the workforce.
Ultimately, university teaches you the skills to learn. Although you may not remember every detail behind the biology of the cell, you will have developed efficient research and analytical skills. For example, although obtaining a Master of Science may not be specialized towards a specific role, it proves that an individual has efficient learning capabilities, and experience doing scientific papers and presentations.
Unfortunately, many hiring managers avoid taking on new graduates and seek a minimum of two or more years of work experience. Although new graduates are eager to put their skills and knowledge to use, many struggle to find jobs in their field of study. Organizations want entry-level candidates with experience, but new graduates struggle to gain practical experience due to this very reason. New grads aren’t the only ones missing out.
