I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation. Its flying by , it felt like just yesterday we started summer. But for me that only means one thing, I am only a few months away from graduating and becoming a true full time employee.
With every degree you wonder , am I going to get a job after college? What jobs are out there? Who will hire me? and the answer is when your an FIT student jobs are endless! We are creative and unique people and that’s exactly why we chose FIT as the school for us.
Currently I am about to have two degrees from FIT. I have a background and associates in interior design and I am about to graduate with my bachelors in ITM or international trade and marketing. With both backgrounds my opportunities for jobs are everywhere! When people look at my resume from a marketing stand point they love that I have an interior design background, it shows my creative side and also that I am a good planner.
Some jobs that I have been applying to for after school include a little bit of both. One that I am really interested in right now is a company that manufactures bedding and ships them to the US internationally. This is great for me because I understand it from all aspects. Some other jobs are international account manager, strategic planner, event coordinator, marketing coordinator , importer/ exporter for both national and international companies. I may even end up staying at my current job which is a software company , being the head of sales, or something related to that or marketing.
My best advice is to interview for a few different options when looking for the perfect full time job for you. Feel out the company , see if its the right fit for you. Start this process about 2-3 months before you graduate, that way you aren’t left in the dark with nothing to do once school ends.
FIT also offers many services to help you find a job after school, as well as you can always reach out to us or even past professors.
Good Luck with your hunt :), and I hope this semester is the best one yet for you !
