Our Mission for College Students & Recent Graduates
ROCS was created to help college students and recent grads. While you’re in school, it’s important to think about your future, but have reasonable expectations. In other words, don’t think you’re going to get a job as a financial broker making $100k a year. We’re sure it’s possible somewhere, but to the average student, it’s not possible. We realize you may not be the same person as when you began your Freshman year, but feel free to take advantage of an internship, part-time job or full-time career positions. Not everyone can qualify for all positions, but based on our years helping students find jobs, here’s some advice we can offer:
You just got out of your High School years or decided to attend college after a year or two off. Now, you’re on your way to get that diploma you’ve heard your friends talk about. While you may not qualify for every position, part-time or temporary positions would best suit any College Freshman. During Summer or Winter break, check out or job postings for any internships.
You’re done with Gen. Ed and have decided on your major. It’s time to start thinking about how you can put your degree to use while gaining some real world experience. If you’re considering a career option, it’s best to explore by dabbling in a few different career paths. For example, if you’re considering Marketing, check out a job that’s research focused, on the account side, or working in the company’s in-house marketing department. We think that our on-call, or part-time jobs might be best.
Your Junior Year (or 3rd Year for the students on the more than 4 year college plan), is getting into the nitty-gritty of your degree. Put those classes to use and combine it with a job that matches your degree program. This way, you’ve got some practical experience combined with the degree too! For Juniors, our on-call, temporary, part-time jobs, or internships might be most practical.
Ahhh…the final stretch before freedom. Whether you’ve got a resume full of experience or you need a little extra padding, ROCS can help you out.
We all kick and scream and wish we could go back to college, but that’s not an option. You’ve got a degree and have more options available to you than when you were in college. Put that 18th Century Literature degree to use by doing something useful. If you’ve got bills to pay and are hungry for a position (and a paycheck); perhaps we can help. Whether you’re interviewing at other places, have a part-time job to help fray living costs.
