HEYME wellness package

You got a degree and you can’t find a job. After the stress of classes and exams, you now have to face a completely different type of pressure: that of finding your first job. How to pass the challenge? Follow our advice.


It’s okay if your parents have different ideas and expectations than yours. What matters is how you approach the situation.

If you think the bar is way too high, you can talk to them about it to try to find common ground.

Argue/provide answers

Your loved ones regularly ask you questions about your job search. In order not to be caught off guard and to answer in a clear manner, remember to prepare your answers. You will be more comfortable during discussions with family or friends.

For example, you can talk about the offers you have found, the news of the job market, the jobs that might interest you, etc.

Thus, over the course of the discussions, you may be able to come across the job of your dreams!

Apply only to job offers that suit you, no need to respond to all published offers.

If you can’t get a clear idea of ​​your long-term career goals, it’s normal, it’s only the beginning of your professional journey.

Answer the following questions to try to determine the type of job that suits you:

  • What did I enjoy doing during my studies and/or my professional experience?
  • What kind of skills did I learn in college?
  • What excites me?
  • What knowledge or skills would I like to improve?

By answering these questions you will be able to orient yourself more easily towards the type of position that corresponds to your skills.

Positive/create a network

Do you feel like every time you connect to LinkedIn, Facebook or check your WhatsApp groups, someone else gets a job?

Stay positive and keep in touch with the young graduates in your class. You can discuss, share your experiences and why not discuss the secrets of your successes!

Limit job search hours

Many factors that you do not control contribute to your daily stress: the economy, the labor market, the pandemic…

To overcome this stress and avoid burnout, you can focus on what you can control.

When it comes to job search, while you can’t control how long it will take you to find a job, you can control how much time you spend in the search process on a daily or weekly basis.

1 to 3 hours of active research at the time of day when you are most productive is more than enough.

Finally, maintaining a daily routine like making your bed, showering, and exercising helps put you in a positive state of mind and helps reduce stress.
