Entry-level jobs are critical to starting a career. Your first job and most importantly, first boss, can make a huge impact on how quickly you grow in the workforce. Our most recent State of Millennial Hiring Report has data that shows that internship experience, particularly paid internship experience, can have a huge impact on your ability to land an entry-level job. Be sure to get as much internship experience as possible while in school or as soon after graduation as possible.
When searching for your first job, be patient and thoughtful as your decision will influence your job and career for the first few years of your professional life. Some things to consider include the size of the company, company (and team) culture, as well as who your teammates are and what kind of work you will be doing/skills you be learning. Before picking an entry-level job you should do as much research as possible about the company, your new boss, and more, which can be done on WayUp, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and more!
