We could not be more proud of our South College graduates. Each and every student has overcome obstacles, worked hard in class and earned their degrees. We have no doubt they will continue to grow in the right direction as they pursue their careers. As they move forward, we want them to remember these four secrets to success for post-graduates.
1) Stay in touch.
Networking is a huge key to success. So even though you graduated and may not see professors and faculty, we strongly encourage alumni to stay in touch. With the help of social media and other digital communication, remaining connected to people is easier than ever.
Plus, South College loves receiving updates from graduates. Share your success stories with us, so we can continue to brag about our students even post-graduation!
2) Use available resources.
There are learning tools all around you—embrace the resources. Take advantage of technology, cherish mentors and utilize the programs we provide to assist you.
South College students and graduates use resources like Career Services and attend our Career Fair at no charge. While post-graduates may no longer attend our campus on a daily basis, we still welcome them to use available resources.
3) Explore your options.
Don’t feel stuck in one job. Our curriculum is designed to give students a broad educational experience, so they have a wide range of skillsets to apply when they enter or re-enter the workforce.
We take pride in well-rounded students. Among completion of a program, explore the different paths you can take, and choose one that best fits your interests and goals.
4) Keep learning.
Perhaps the most valuable tip we can share with South College graduates is to never stop learning. Taking initiative to learn and explore is a valuable skill not only students should practice but also graduates, professors and professionals alike.
We hope to have taught our students the life skills to learn inside and outside the classroom. If you find yourself in a place where you want to further your education even more, we will always be here for students to come back and keep learning as they pursue a higher level program.
We hope South College graduates take this advice and enjoy the next chapters of their lives and careers. For more ways to be successful as a postgraduate, read our seven tips for re-entering the workforce in a different career.
