Rather than focusing on finding your perfect first job, focus on finding a job that you will enjoy almost every day. Analyze a job in terms of the skills you apply in it; are these skills that you enjoy exercising? Then the job in question might be a good one for you.
Get started by finding five to 10 job descriptions online that are particularly appealing to you. Don’t worry at this moment about position qualifications or location.
What appeals to you about these positions? What similarities exist in these positions? These similarities are the job components that you want to seek in your internship and entry-level positions!
