Many young women who have completed seminary these days are heading straight to college. Some are skipping the seminary stage to begin with, opting to get a head start on their degree. In today’s world, a degree is something that has become essential, like a prized key to a life of opportunity.
Boys too, are slowly gravitating toward a college lifestyle. Bochurim, many already married, some single, some in Yeshivah, have become college students with a burning urge to complete their courses and emerge victorious with a BA.
We are not here to debate the spiritual pros and cons of staying in the system, leaving the system, going to a secular college or opting for a religious environment. Instead, we are here to dispel the myth, the underlying notion that college will hand over jobs on a silver platter, that a degree will open doors of opportunity and job placements will fall down from the sky like so many white doves.
There is no denying that taking that step and earning a degree is an act of self help and motivation. But the crucial elements of securing a job with the qualifications earned in the years of studying is something most graduate students grapple with. Suddenly, the security of being within a learning environment is over; the world is your oyster and yet you are finding yourself unable to crack open the shell.
That’s where The Geshem Center steps in.
Finding a job is not easy. Turning up to an interview and flashing degrees does not ensure a welcome into the working world. There is a process involved, a self creating process where an individual zeroes in on fundamental foundations to finding his or her niche.
Like in every aspect of life, there is work involved. But the difference with us is that we’re here to guide you. Our on site counselors will help you yourself to understand exactly what you need and are looking for.
They will, figuratively, hold your hand through the job search journey and steer you along the sometimes bumpy path. Together, you will build up a resume that stands out, a resume that not only lists the subjects you have majored in, but one where your skills and talents shine and thereby differentiate you from the rest of the job applicants.
Today, in the job market, it’s about your contribution. How will you add to a particular company or working environment? What is it about your personality or experience that makes you feel a job is tailor made for you? Yes, having a degree in a certain area qualifies you to a certain extent. But it is not always enough. And that’s what we at the Geshem center, hope to teach you.
You’ve taken the initiative. You know that can do it. Now found out how.
