3 tips to start a career from scratch

Starting your career might be daunting because it may require you to know the industry and get a relevant degree or qualification. Here are three tips to help you get started.

1. Know your interest and abilities
It is important to get a brighter idea of what you want and specialise in because it helps you gain or find your competitive advantages easier. You can make a list, consult your families and friends for more insights, or look at job advertisements to find your competitive advantages. You may also do some research regarding the position so that you can tailor your resume to fit the job better.

2. Get experience
Experience can be an essential index for recruiters to assess whether to hire you. It may seem harsh, but it’s fair for them to have such an index since all companies want their employees to be assets, not liabilities! Then the trickiest part is how do we get the experience? You can browse some big companies’ graduate programs, do volunteer jobs, or join a professional association in a specific industry.

3. Start networking
After finishing the above two steps, you can probably think about networking with experienced and/or professional seniors. It may provide potential job opportunities and superior insights into a certain industry.
