COMPETE.

That’s the message of a recent article in the Harvard Business Review by noted business expert Marshall Goldsmith.

Goldsmith makes a number of really important observations that every recent graduate and graduate-to-be needs to hear.

Among Goldsmith’s comments:

  • It is tough out there, and it’s only going to get tougher.
  • It’s crucial to think like an entrepreneur. 
  • Students are competing in a global market. Goldsmith defines an important aspect of global competition: students at top engineering and science programs across the world speak English as fluently as you do – and it’s their second language.

Goldsmith’s mantra: compete, compete, compete.

  • Develop skills and talents that will make you globally competitive.
  • Keep upgrading and changing your skills and talents to fit the marketplace. 
  • Know more and work harder.
  • Keep refining and enhancing your education – never stop learning.

In yesterday’s post, we were trying to share some “tough love” and encourage reluctant job hunters to take the leap.

But if you’re not convinced, don’t take our word for it – here’s a few recent graduates who have found jobs and launched careers in the last five years. Here’s what they have to say.

With all of the economic challenges we’ve been hearing about on the news, it’s clear that searching for a new job is trickier than it was before.

And the statistics are indicating that there are fewer jobs to go around. Jobs that might previously have been the domain of new graduates entering the job force are also being awarded to mid-level candidates who are competing for jobs after a layoff or downsizing.

But we’re hearing a lot of fear and hesitation from our readers. And we want to encourage you to take the leap. It may be harder, but finding a job is by no means an impossible task.
