If you are a new graduate who is working part time to make money while searching for your first post college full time job, then you can benefit from this and develop profitable career skills as well as improve your resume. College graduates do not understand the advantages of working a part time when they are searching for a job. Many employers like candidates who are working; it develops a good work ethic and initiative. Suppose you are a new graduate, who wishes to make a career in advertising, but you have not found advertising work yet, you should take a job waiting tables to meet your requirements. While you did not go a university to be a restaurant waiter, you can still develop skills managers value while hiring, such as:

  • Dealing with consumers
  • Handling manifold priorities
  • Solving issues
  • Thinking quickly
Appropriately expressing these job skills on your resume could offer you the upper hand while applying for the position of account management in advertising. If a candidate comes with work experience at a part time or full time job, they’ve shown that they could market themselves, interact with others, learn on the job as well as keep a schedule. In fact, such skills are important in most fields
Part-Time Payoffs

To make the most of a part time job, describe the job you are eventually seeking; then search for part time jobs that would assist you to develop those skills. For example, if your objective is a fresh sports marketing job, then you can apply for a part time at any local gym. You might begin with checking in members, but you can still help to coordinate the facilities. In doing so, you will display strong communication skills, multitasking, as well as event planning skills.

Bring Your Expertise on the Job Hunt

Once you have developed those skills, you need to express them productively in your job hunt. There are some effective tips mentioned below:
  • On your resume application: your resume should feature your recently acquired skills in the qualification synopsis. A bulleted work expertise list assists the recruiters to see if you have the skills that they are searching for.

  • In the interview: you should prepare behavioral based narratives that show how you developed as well as used those skills. For example, an interviewer might ask you to tell him when you had to solve a consumer’s issue. If you are working at a sports store, then you can explain circumstances involving a displeased customer. For instance, a consumer came in searching for a specific brand of Adidas that you didn’t carry in your store. You really wished this consumer to go away satisfied, so you used your online marketing as well as inventory system to find where she could find the product.
