When it comes to finding work, let's face it, school teaches you everything except how to get the job. In fact, here are three things they don't teach you that you should know:

  1. Your job will not be like the way you dreamed it would after reading that case study in class. Translation: It always sounds better in theory than it is in practice.
  2. Your degree will get you to the career starting line, but nobody will be there with a course map and a start gun. (a.k.a. You're on your own!)
  3. You need experience AND a degree to get any sort of decent job. The classic "Catch 22" because you can't seem to get one without the other!
Okay, so if these realities make sense to you, then it's time to go back to school - career school!

According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.

TikTok, the popular social media platform that allows users to make and share short-form videos, is not just for individuals looking for funny and entertaining content.
