College seniors and recent graduates are facing a far different job market than your parents faced. The social contract between employer and employee has been breaking down for decades. Today’s graduates are likely to have between 5-10 jobs in their career, as opposed to the 2-3 your parents had, and the 1 your grandparents had! Plus, the new realities of the job market mean that you will likely be self-employed as a contractor.
Employers are also expecting you to take more ownership of your work. That means bringing an entrepreneurial approach to your career. You need to be an entrepreneur whether you work for a company, or contract with one.
Finally, every job opening receives 300-500 resumes. The competition out there is extreme, and you need to really set yourself apart to get any attention from employers.
How do you navigate a world that has changed this much? The good news is that if you spend some time deciding what problems you want to solve, the career you want is waiting for you. But it’s going to look different than what you expected.
