3 mistakes youngsters make while job hunting

BY Satvik Garg

: Students often have a false perception of the professional environment. This could be because they build preconceived notions about their jobs, so when they begin to work, they are neither happy nor satisfied.

> Youngsters also have a tendency to be narrow-minded after university. It is essential for them to be flexible during this period as it is their first experience in the outside world and sets the foundation for their careers. Very often, they are too keen to follow the traditional path set out for them. However, in our rapidly developing world, it is imperative to see that there is not just one path to success. All jobs are learning opportunities!

> Lastly, students should never stop looking for opportunities. They should constantly strive to excel and further themselves in their respective fields. So, they should always look for opportunities to challenge themselves and further their boundaries.
