Career mistakes = No Job?

I found this via a friend on Facebook. Why is this an awesome list?….

Because NONE of these listed mistakes apply to my career choices as a nurse!!!!

The Top 10 College Mistakes That Will NOT Help You Find a Career:

  1. Getting a degree where the only way you can get a job is by getting your masters or PhD.
  2. Heading into a career field with no jobs available.
  3. Getting a graduate degree that wasn’t necessary because you could have gotten the same job without it.
  4. Not conducting informational interviews to find out that you hate your chosen career before you start working in it.
  5. Not making a plan for what you are going to do after college so you just take the first job that popped up after graduation (that you hate).
  6. Not building a network during college because you spent too much time studying or partying.
  7. Picking a major where there is only one type of job after graduation instead of having many different options that you can pursue.
  8. Picking a major that you are good at in school but you actually despise it.
  9. Picking a major because someone else said that you should.
  10. Since you can’t find a job after college, you decide to head to grad school instead (and still can’t find a job after grad school).
