Another examination season has just finished. You have a very important decision to make within next few weeks. The success of your future depends on this decision. In an increasingly competitive job market getting a top job requires good research, correct planning, skills, and attitudes. These top employers require good international higher education qualifications to reassure the quality of their recruits. Northwood University USA, a leading business university has taken the initiative to conduct Sri Lanka's first ever "Employment through Education" event.
Rewarding job opportunities
Today's students have an incredible world of opportunity open to them. From the Internet and e-Commerce to Biotechnology, Aerospace, Banking & Finance, and Nanotechnology, new industries demand a host of able, innovative and bold business professionals. Finance specialists capable of maneuvering in an increasingly fast-paced, regulated, and sophisticated world of astounding financial opportunities. Business Development Managers capable of converting ideas into profitable businesses.
Marketing professionals able to convince a smart and articulate global consumer to buy their product or service. Managers who can handle today's demanding workforce, increase productivity, improve quality, and control labor costs while ensuring employee satisfaction to reduce turnover. International Business professionals who can work globally as easily and successfully as they do locally. The list is endless - the opportunities are there.
Today's Global Economy means that the best opportunities have an international connection. Most employers expect an attitude of "Thriving, not merely surviving" from their recruits.
Furthermore, today's competitive employment environment requires students to gain experience during their education so that as graduates they "hit the deck running" as the saying goes. Companies want employees that are productive from Day 1, not after a further 12-month training period.
The key to "thriving, not merely surviving" begins with setting your goals as a student. Many of today's students set their goals far too low. This may be because of a lack of confidence, concern over the local employment situation, or other factors. Other students set unrealistically high expectations without a plan to achieve their high goals.
Still others start studies and careers with no goals or objectives at all - like lost people just wandering the halls and offices of businesses. "Thriving, not merely surviving" means accurately assessing yourself and the opportunities, then setting challenging but realistic goals in the context of a workable plan.
