One of the major reasons so many International Affairs students struggle after graduation is that they struggle to gain the real-world skills needed to pursue and land their dream job in today’s hyper-competitive job market. In an unsparing job market, amid growing concern that an International Affairs-related education may not translate into real-world success, students and young professionals are desperate for any potential edge. Students have real fears they lack the practical skills they’ll need after graduation.
It is a fact that in today’s workplaces, employers want proven skills and demonstrated drive for successful candidates, not credentials. They demand that candidates are more focused, skilled and driven than ever before.
Getting into the workplace and making an impact requires a certain skillset and mindset that only comes with experience. 4 years at university no longer guarantees you a career. There is no degree that matches real-world experience.
