Ask Dave

Catch 22

Katie is caught in a bad cycle while trying to search for her first job.

QUESTION: Katie just graduated from college with a degree in human resources, but has no experience. No one will hire her because of that, but she can’t get experience if no one hires her. It’s a catch 22, but career coach Dan Miller and Dave have some great tips for her to prove herself.

ANSWER: You may have to contact 30 companies to get that first opportunity. Don’t go out there and rest on your college degree. Show companies what you bring to the table. Even if you don’t get into a human resources position right away, get an entry-level position and bust it, and you can work up from there.
