First of all,
Why is it necessary to fetch a job that requires 2-3 years of experience as you graduate?
– victimisation at the Entry-level jobs in Corporate Sector.
– less scope of your work getting recognition (as you don’t have any experience) plus chances of your getting promoted is rare as “crowd is at the entry-level jobs”.
– less pay (forget about making any investments). Only investments possible are going experience & expertise.
## How to fetch it?
Step 1: Co-found a start-up in pre-final year of your college (I encourage for co-founding because it makes your task easy; you won’t quit, there will be constant source of motivation due to other partner, generating new ideas, brainstorming, etc. are possible).
What you need to do is to build a fb business page. Go for it’s promotion by investing some bucks. Straight away move to providing some services once you have 1K+ likes. Your goal must be 10K+ likes (of which at least 50% must be organic).
Once you reach this stage, start collaborating with other start-ups, small companies, influential people, etc.
Even if collaboration doesn’t works out, still these contacts & connections will push you up.
– It will help in improving your people’s skills.
– Building contacts with Managers & HR in corporate sector.
Step 2: Learn as much as you can.
Learn about people, companies & most importantly polish your skills. Focus on one-skill & aim to get extraordinarily better at at least 2-skills before you graduate. The skills could be:
– Content-writing & Management
– SMM & SEO
– E-mail Etiquettes & Strategic Collaboration skills
– Graphic Designing
(The good thing is that except coding none of the above is usually taught in engineering colleges – this is referred to as college- industry mismatch & causes structural unemployment). But it is good for you.
## Benefits to you.
After working-hard for 2 years as a co-founder of a start-up (even if you fail), here are the takeaways for you:
– You have a powerful CV (I don’t recommend people to just have a powerful CV but it must be complemented by skills as well. Else it will be useless).
– You can negotiate for a better salary with the HR
– Your skill-sets make you stand out from everyone else.
And you can easily get an offer for a job that requires 2-3 years of experience (apply via LinkedIn; make sure you have added all your acquaintances & connections over it).
P.S. 2-3 years of experience at least equates to twice the salary that of a typical engineer at entry-level jobs.
