    t is very common these days to jump around from job to job, even
    career to career; it’s far more common for people to have 3 or more
    different jobs in a decade than just one. And this extends to the first job
    after graduation. It’s not a common perception that your first job can set
the tone for your entire career… even in the tech field.
But your first job, nonetheless, is one of your most important job experiences
that can help you find a better one in the future.
Graduates’ first job has an inordinate impact on their career path and their
“future income stream”. The importance of first jobs for future success also
means that graduates remain highly dependent on the random fluctuations
of the economy, which can play a crucial role in the quality of jobs available
when later on, that is good news for people who are entering the work
force with the economy growing, but rather disturbing for recent graduates
who were driven by recession into taking less-than-ideal first jobs and are
now aiming to work their way up.
Your first job sets the tone for the rest of your career. Choosing the right
first job takes careful research and planning, and there can be pitfalls along
the way. If you aim low, your career path may be limited as a result. If you
choose the wrong company, it could set you off on a track that might take
years to change. You should be able to prepare to network and market
yourself whenever the circumstances should oblige you to.
You should put in mind that when you are looking for your second job,
which may be out of choice or because of circumstances, employers will
place a lot of importance on your previous job title and the prestige of the
company where you first worked. It is extremely difficult to move from an
entry-level job at a small or unknown organization into a higher position in
a well-known organization. However, it is much easier to go from a good
professional position at a recognized company into a better position at an
even more successful organization.
Before looking for a first job, it’s very important to know what you want to
be in the future. You should ask yourself “Do I want to be a specialist or
a generalist?” If you are really passionate about a particular field (such as
engineering, biology, music, finance, or medicine) and you know that this
is what you want to pursue, then you probably are a specialist. If, on the
other hand, your interests lie in becoming an organizational leader or an
entrepreneur, you are probably more of a generalist. As a specialist, you
will want to choose a first job that allows you the opportunity to progress
more deeply in your field. As a generalist, you would be wise to choose a
first job that will offer you opportunities to learn about a number of fields,
and to expand your confidence and leadership abilities.
But always know that no matter what your first job is, working hard is the
vital key to success. Having a good work ethic is important in any job you        Sponsored by
have. Whether you are flipping burgers or answering phones it is the one
thing that will get you noticed. With a good work ethic you will find that you
can go farther in your job than anyone – which will help you work towards
the job you want.

                  to get there. If something happens that is beyond your
                  control then make sure you have the phone number with
                  you that you can ring and explain. Being punctual always
                  gives you a head start, and makes your interviewer build
                  a good impression about you and about how responsible
                  you will be at work.

                  Practice Makes Perfect
                  Not everybody is naturally good at interviews but you can
                  improve your interview skills by practicing. Ask a friend or
                  family member to give you a mock interview and assess
                  how well you do. Think about the interview questions that
                  the employer is likely to ask and plan some answers in
                  advance. Also, practice introducing yourself and talking
                  about your life and interests. The more prepared you
                  feel, the better equipped you will be to cope with the real

                  Show your personality
                  Your potential employer will have seen your application
                  and know all about you on paper, but the interview is
                  the first time they will see your personality. Giving a good
                  impression and coming across well is as important as
                  having good answers to questions. Be friendly and open
                  up, talk with confidence and a steady voice. You also
                  shouldn’t try too hard as this is likely to stifle your natural

                  Always have goals
                  Be aware of your goals; show the interviewer that you have
                  ideas and anticipations for your future and the company’s
                  as well. It will be a plus if you represent the interviewer with
                  some ideas and creative changes that can be made.

                  It is easier said than done of course, but it is very important
                  to appear relaxed and calm at the interview. Being too
                  tense and nervous will mean that you don’t perform to the
                  best of your ability. By practicing your interview skills and
                  planning answers to possible interview questions, you will
                  feel more confident.
                  Making a good impression at an interview isn’t complicated
                  but it is important. By planning in advance you will feel
                  more confident and relaxed on the day of your interview
                  and will let your personality shine through.

                  Do Your Homework
                  Having knowledge about a potential employer gives you a
                  competitive edge over other job seekers. A key resource for
                  job-seekers is information, as job-seekers will not succeed
                  in the job-search without knowledge of the companies
                  you are interviewing with. It’s also very important to know
                  about the kind of employees the company wants, along

                  of work.
                                 e have been witnessing throughout the
                                 years the problems and difficulties fresh
                                 graduates face after graduation. The fresh
                                 graduate situation has been deteriorating

                  year after year, but no one has tried to tackle where the
                  problem is coming from or how to solve it.
                  We have been facing this problem long before the
                  economic recession, and as much as the recession
                  did backfire and increase the difficulties of the fresh
                  graduates’ employment, it was not the main cause of this
                  particular problem.After graduation, the fresh graduates
                  are left in the world of the unknown. Not only do they
                  discover that all the curriculum that they have been
                  studying throughout the minimum four years of college,

                                                                                  the reasons of
                  has nothing whatsoever to do with the real world, but the
                  problem doesn’t only lie there. Even after graduation, the
                  fresh graduate is restrained from immediately applying
                  for a job because of one of the many obstacles they
                  face such as waiting for the graduation certificate or

                  completing their Army papers. Another point that only
                  makes the whole situation even worse is that most of
                  the well-established companies are always looking
                  for experienced and qualified employees, not leaving
                  a chance for the fresh graduates, and they can’t be
                  blamed. Every company leader or manager looks for the
                  welfare of the company as a whole and that is why the                      by Dina Shaker

                  final choice is always in favor of the more experienced
                  and educated candidates. Recent studies have shown
                  that unemployment in Egypt was 8.8 percent for the
                  fourth quarter of 2008, according to numbers released
                  by MENA, the state news agency. The percentage of
                  unemployed with university degrees or higher education
                  reached 21.8 per cent. And for those with secondary
                  education it reached a higher rate of 53.9 per cent. These
                  figures reveal the seriousness of the situation.
                  Placing a well organized system will put this crisis to an
                  end. Universities and institutions in Egypt concentrate on
                  lectures and speeches that don’t give the students any
                  opportunity of practicing and doing practical work that
                  will give them a wider idea of how the working operation
                  takes place. Undergraduates should undergo all the
                  training needed to be open to all the possibilities and
                  difficulties one is bound to face in the business.
                  There is a constant mismatch between jobs that are
                  available and the skills of those who are aiming to fill it.
                  Undergraduates should stress on taking all the training
                  courses and workshops needed for the field they desire.
                  By doing so, their knowledge and qualifications will
                  enhance their opportunities in finding a good job, and
                  by that the gap between fresh graduates and the jobs
                  available will decrease gradually.

                  We live and work in a changing world. New laws are
                  introduced that lead to the introduction of new policies.
                  New ideas and approaches emerge. New problems
                  arise and new solutions are sought. The world of work
                  is therefore a constantly moving and evolving one. What
                  this means, then, is that, if we are not constantly learning
                  as we go about our day-to-day business, then each
                  day we are getting further and further out of touch with
                  the demands of the modern working world. And that is
                  why solving the issue of unemployment isn’t going to
                  be as hard if every person tried to develop him/her self
                  individually. Being more developed and more qualified will
                  make a better work candidate of you when searching for
                  a job. Lately training centers have been concentrating
                  on giving the fresh graduates a wider and clearer view of
                  how the working system operates.
                  It has become essential to invest in training and
                  developing job seekers in all fields. Training centers
                  mainly concentrate on providing a high quality training
                  and education service together with consultancy services
                  that will help fresh graduates understand many points
                  concerning, for example, how to write resumes, how to
                  act in an interview, how to dress and how to manage time.
                  Stressing on the importance learning and developing
                  individually is essential, for learning is the most important
                  way of achieving the link between good job opportunities
                  and the fresh graduates who represent all the innovated
    12            and creative ideas that will elevate the companies, and
                  therefore will restore the economic growth in Egypt.

                                              to project a positive image, and will not be able to succeed in return.
                                              Here are tips for how to be a good marketer:

                                              1) Gain Customer Confidence:
                                              Customer skepticism, indifference, or confusion are among the top
                                              sales killers in the business world. It’s up to you to project an image
                                              of experience, quality, dependability, excellent customer service, and/or
                                              added value to your prospective customers in order to win their confidence
                                              and overcome sales objections. If you haven’t clearly communicated the
                                              advantages and solid reasons for them to do business with you, then
                                              they’ll be hesitant to commit and the sale will go to your competitor.

                                              2) Sincere Enthusiasm:

                                              services, your company, and yourself, then your prospects will pick up
                                              on that passionate attitude and feel confident and optimistic about
                                              doing business with you. Your words are important, but your nonverbal
                                              communication -- your tone of voice, inflection, rate of speech, volume,
                                              facial expressions, your listening skills, eye contact, and overall
                                              responsiveness -- can have an even greater impact on how you influence
                                              and persuade your prospective customers, clients, or members.

                                              3) Always have a Marketing plan:
                                              Create a small business marketing plan to identify and capitalize on
                                              your strengths and opportunities. Your marketing strategies should also
                                              take into account factors such as your weaknesses, external threats
                                              (competition, economic factors, etc.), media strategy, sales and expense
                                              budgets, target market analysis, and readily available marketing tools,
                                              as well as marketing strategies and tools that you need to research or
                                              acquire. It is important to be very organized and have a solution to any
                                              problem that you might face

                                              4) Be Unique:
                                              Creating a unique positioning can be done in a variety of ways:
                                              Pricing -- You can use price to create the winning difference. For
                                              instance you could undercut your competitors and offer the cheapest
                                              product of its kind in the market. Your competitive advantage would be
                                              price. Alternately, you could create an up market product and sell at a
                                              premium price.

                                              Quality -- is another way to distinguish what you sell from all the rest.
                                              Again, you can choose to vary the quality of production or service from
                                              over-the-top to just-scraping-by. Either way, you will want to claim a
                                              certain quality standard.

    14                                        Putting creativity to your work elevates it to a higher standard and gives
                                              you priority to other candidates in the same field.
