I am a senior with a major in history. In case you might be wondering, I decided to learn history to become a developed communicator and critical thinker. Any navigator will tell you, to figure out where you are going, you got to know where you have been. I do not have plans on becoming a teacher. I spent my summers taking classes or as a leasing consultant for an apartment community. I am part of my university's work-study program during the school year (an admin).
My plan is to become an entrepreneur in the technology sector(custom solutions) in 5-10 years. I hesitate to be more specific, because I would need more information on market conditions and demand before I could commit to one business plan. I am not going to try to predict the future, but I do know there will be problems and I want to be ready to solve them. Until that day comes, I will gain experience while working full-time. I will use my salary to build capital for my future business.
Becoming a master salesman would be a valuable skill. I would love to become a manager. [u]My question[/u] is, what can I start doing [b]now[/b] as a soon-to-be college graduate in order to get an effective job by May of 2009?
-Which relationships should I be developing at this point with less than 7 months until I enter the real world?
-Where would a person with little to no experience look for an entry level job in sales or technology?
