About to finish my degree in Business Administration, and I've no idea what jobs I can apply for with this degree. Should I take up more courses before finding a job?

I've heard horror stories about degrees being to vague and general for companies, and realised my degree could be like that. what should I do to avoid this?

You should speak to your seniors, career counsellors, upgrade your skills, and apply for internships.

It's up to you to sell yourself and your value to the company you want to work for. Your degree doesn't matter much after you get a seat in front of your future boss for an interview.

Take up job internships to find out more about certain career and the related industry. Give yourself time to explore different careers. Do not rush into it. Speak to career counsellor if there is a need to.

  • Any prior applicable working/internship experience? If so, use them to value add to your degree of study
  • Took part in any extra-curricular activities in school? Case Competitions, CCA positions etc. If so, also use them to value add
  • Any interesting skills/hobbies that you have that might be applicable in the workforce? Adobe Software etc. If so, also use them to value add!

A degree is just a gateway to the workforce! Don't let it limit your choices and potential!

Good luck!
