Tips to Become Employable By Mrinal Das !!!

From my little experience in the field of recruitment and more precisely university hiring for technology (IT) companies, I see a huge gap between the industry needs and the syllabus or curriculum that are taught in colleges.

Study and work or study to work?

Hi everyone,

My name is Sofia and I am currently working as an Analyst for the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), based in Bucharest, Romania. I would like to share my opinion on a topic that is always on the mind of young students: should we study and work or better study to work?

Whether it is a couple of weeks in Sales, a year in Contracts or just every Monday afternoon with a Consultant, any work experience you might gain is invaluable. First, it provides you with an insight in the areas you are studying about and give you a good idea of what you do and do not enjoy, even more, of what you are good at and at what you are not. This kind of experience is priceless when you start thinking about a long-term career path.

Secondly, it will make your CV stand out and give you an edge over other candidates, it will say something about your person. Being able to work during the studies does not only show that you have gained experience and a set of skills, it shows that you are willing to go the extra mile, are good at time management and are prepared to sacrifice a bit of your spare time in order to gain experience. No one said that this would be easy, but it is definitely worth it.
