"Nothing worth having comes easy" ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Recently, I was asked by a graduate on what he should do to boost his profile amongst recruiters to land his dream job with a leading energy company. The following is my advice to him:
Getting into your dream profession will not be an easy task. You probably will get rejected multiple times and it probably will take you some time before you get that job. You may even have to compromise and take another job to make ends meet. But as the saying goes, “nothing worth having comes easy.” As anything in life, we need to strategize, plan ahead, execute and adapt. Then, persevere in your effort and Insha’Allah, you will achieve your dream, sooner rather than later.
