"What value do I have when I am only a fresh graduate?"
Everyone has some value. The question is from whose perception are we looking.
The Employers' or Yours?
Before we move on, I would like to ask you to read the below posts:
- Staying Competitive in the Psychology Job Market as a New Graduate
- Career Planning for a Psychological Career (Part 1)
- Using the "COW" in Building Your Career
So what is your value?
During interviews, employers may ask this same question from another angle, with questions like:
- Why should I employ you?
- What can you or will you contribute to the company?
- Have you done anything previously that may be beneficial to the company or this position?
- What am I interested and passionate about that is part of a job position?
- What are my strengths?
- What skills do I have?
- What can I do that will enhance my knowledge and experience about the positions or industry?
So what are some suggestions that you can do? Actually I have already previously written about them, and here they are!
