With the economy so bad, it might seem like an excellent idea to skip the job market and just go to grad school. Except that without a master plan, that path could be just as rocky, according to Mz Liz.
It seems unfair to this student that there are so many unpaid internships out there. Why aren't there more paid ones? It depends on a few key factors, according to Mz Liz.
Ingrained habits can be tough to change, especially just a short period before something as important as an interview. Are there any options for eradicating the dreaded "umm" from existence? Maybe, says Mz Liz.
After completing a Ph.D., a graduate student is finding it difficult to find an academic posting and wonders if they should apply for other types of jobs… and if they need to ditch their CV in favor of a slimmed down resume. Mz Liz says not so fast...
Sometimes after you start a course of study, you discover that it's not exactly what you were hoping. In this case, going on to Medical School doesn't seem all that appealing to this pre-med student, but Grad School might. Maybe. Mz Liz helps peel back the onion...
And just like that, it's October, you're graduating in December… and you've not quite gotten around to finding a job. And you missed the last Career Fair. Is all hope lost? Maybe not, says Mz Liz.
After looking high and low, this student just can't seem to find any work on campus. It's almost like they have just vanished… or have they? Mz Liz knows a secret or two.
