Chrissy Conner, President of Conner International – A member of the Sanford Rose Associates® network of offices, Featured in Forbes, 15 Essential Tips For College Students Preparing For Their Future Careers
Plano, TX 9/21/2020
College is a time where most students spend a lot of time looking at the small picture and all but ignoring what’s happening outside. Preparing for the world of work requires students to change the way they see things. There are no clearly defined lines for success in the outside world. Even landing a job doesn’t have any particularly clear-cut rules.
While college teaches a lot of the theoretical knowledge that a graduate may need, it doesn’t explain some specific skills that an HR department may be looking for. We consulted 15 members of Forbes Coaches Council to help guide students with the things that they should be doing before leaving college so as to gain a competitive advantage in their future careers.
“Prepare for your career by expanding your knowledge of business/corporate etiquette. Going from a classroom to a business setting is a transition, and knowing what’s expected will help you feel confident in your new role. Tips on bringing phones to meetings, controlling emotions in the workplace and having a neat, professional appearance are great examples of what you will want to know,” says Chrissy Conner, CEO of Conner International.
