How to Find Your Dream Career With Monster

This post is sponsored by and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own. 

Life after college is so much more tougher than it looks in the movies! One of the biggest risks I took after college was to move from my hometown of Rochester, NY to Dallas...without even securing a job first! I assumed that the job hunting process would be easy (let's all laugh together on how naive I was lol) so I was a bit surprised when it took me a few months to find the right job that fits for me and that I genuinely love. Sure, there's tons of jobs out there (especially when you live in one of the fastest growing cities in America!) but I didn't just want to find just any old job. I wanted to find my passion and that's where Monster comes in. After countless hours spent applying for jobs online, I finally found my dream career as a social media specialist on Monster! The entire application process was simple and there's so many great resources on their site which comes in handy when you're a college graduate who's suddenly afraid of post-grad life.

Here are some great ways to make the job hunting process easy and come one step closer to finding your dream career:

Resume Reviews

A good resume is key to landing the perfect job and luckily Monster offers free resume reviews from career experts! It's always nice to have another person look at your resume and the submission is so effortless and quick. All I did was submit my resume through the website and the next day I got an email saying that my review was done! There was tons of helpful feedback such as making my past job descriptions shorter and more specific and even making the font bolder so it stands out more. Plus there was detailed feedback on a typical recruiter's first impression of my resume. In my opinion, this is one of the most useful tools on their website and I highly recommend it - even if you think your resume doesn't need any improvement.

Career Advice

The job hunting process can be so overwhelming so I love the fact that Monster provides so much helpful information from experts such as how to write a cover letter, what to wear to an interview, and even how to negotiate your salary and understand employee benefits. There's also resources that come in useful after you get the job such as getting along with bosses and coworkers, everything about work-life balance, and even the proper way to quit a job! These are all things that college doesn't really teach you so it's nice to know that there's a place to go so you can know these things beforehand.

Jobs, Jobs, & More Jobs 

In my opinion, Monster has the largest variety of jobs avaliable and the search process is so easy. For example, if you're looking for a job in the social media industry, the search engine will automatically include careers that are related to social media such as PR or marketing. This way, you're not missing out on anything and might find come across a job that sounds more interesting than what you had originally been searching for.

Career Horoscope

Okay, so this is a cool bonus: career horoscopes! I'm a sucker for anything zodiac and I always check my horoscope every morning so this is right up my alley. Plus it just makes the time that you'll be spending searching for the right job so much more fun!
