Dubai, UAE, 30th March 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, If you are reading this, you are probably looking for career advice and wondering what the big deal is about the Ivy League. The Ivy League holds a reputation for being some of the most competitive and selective institutions in the world. That is why so many people want to get into these programs. But, as the old saying goes, you can’t just walk into the Ivy League – you need to be admitted to an Ivy League school. You see, Ivy League schools are the gold standard of education in the world. The admissions committee at these institutions are looking for students who are the very best, and they only want to admit a tiny percentage of applicants. So, what makes these programs so hard to get into? A lot of factors. But the main reason is that the Ivy League is an extremely competitive environment. Once you are in, you have made it, and you are in the club. From there on, it is all about staying in the good graces of the admissions committee. This means that you will need to get the same kind of advice that the other students do. Enter the world of career counselling. Your career counsellor will help you explore all of your options, understand your long-term goals, and guide you towards the best possible career path for you.
Let us look at some life-changing career counselling tips by Dr Anil Khare, world-famous career counsellor in Dubai.
Get the education you need
It goes without saying that you should get the education you need to be successful in your future career. But what exactly does that mean? Apart from earning top grades, there are tons of different factors that go into getting entry into the Ivy League. You are probably smart enough to know that a single paper cannot possibly cover everything. That is why you will want to take more than one course of study. You will want to make sure that you are getting the core curriculum for the major that you choose. But you should also consider taking electives that have nothing to do with your major. This is because majors are extremely broad, and finding a career path that is a good fit for you will take some serious research. Plus, you never know what kind of career is going to come up next, so it is smart to be prepared for anything. We have with us some of Dubai’s top career counsellors who will be able to guide you on the right courses you need to do.
Network like crazy
What is the point of even going to school if you do not make any friends while you are there? Unless you want to sit in a classroom by yourself, practically, day in and day out? No, we want to meet people. And we need to meet people who have similar interests and who can help us develop our social skills. Networking isn’t just for when you are in school either. While you should definitely go to school-sponsored events, you should also try to put in the time at your local community college or trade school. Look for clubs that you might be interested in, and try to make some friends who are in similar fields as you. Ask them how they got into certain careers, and let them know you are interested in pursuing an advanced degree. While you are at it, do not be afraid to ask professors for career advice. Most of them are in the business of helping students find jobs, and they are more than happy to share their knowledge. Get in touch with one of our expert career counsellors in UAE to learn more.
Make a list of the schools you want to apply to
This will help you stay organized. You cannot apply to every school you like, so you need to make a list. At the top of your list, include the schools that you think are the most selective. You can check out the average admission score for those schools to get a sense of what you can expect from the application process. Then, below that, include the schools that you think are the most competitive. Make a separate list for the schools that you think are less competitive and that you might be more likely to get into. In your list, include the schools that you think have the program that is a good fit for you. Our expert admission counsellors in UAE are well versed in helping you choose the best universities for you.
Get feedback from your references
You are probably wondering what your references have to say about you. After all, you don’t really know them that well. Your references are your classmates, coworkers, and superiors in the industries that you have worked in. Ask them about your performance at work, and let them know why you are a great fit for the job that they are hiring you for. Let them know if you have taken any industry-specific certification courses, and let them know what your long-term career goals are. Let them know if you have got any other interests or hobbies, and let them know what you did in your free time when you were in high school. Give them as many details as you can. And never shy from asking for references in writing if you need to. Let us take care of your admission counselling needs. Contact us today on www.anilkhare.com to learn more.
Take practice tests
While you may have gotten a passing grade in English, you will still need to take the IELTS, SAT or ACT. Make sure you are well-prepared for the test and that you study the material until you know it well.
Make a list of the companies you want to work for
You will want to make a list of the companies that you want to work for after you graduate from college. You can choose from any company that you want, and you can even choose to work for an individual if you want. You can start with the big companies first, like Google, Apple, or Facebook. Be aware that it would be extremely unlikely for you to get hired on at one of these companies, but it is good to put them on your list and give it a try. Then, below those companies, you can put the smaller companies that you want to work for. Just keep in mind that you may want to wait a while before applying to jobs at smaller companies as they may not be as competitive as the big companies.
When you are making your list of the companies you want to work for, you should also make a list of the job titles that interest you. This will help you narrow down your choices when the time comes to apply for jobs. You can choose from dozens of job titles, and many of them are interchangeable. This will help you stay focused on what you want out of your life.
Take some mock interviews
If you are going to take your schoolwork seriously, you may want to consider taking mock interviews. This is when you sit down with an interviewer and have a real conversation about you and why the course or the university interests you. It is a great way to prepare for the kinds of questions that you are likely to be asked, and it is a great way to get comfortable talking with strangers. You can expect to spend between one and three hours for each mock interview. Make sure that you are well-rested and that you have plenty of time to spare. You may want to do this one mock interview before you take your actual college interviews.
Get an idea of how much your target schools are likely to cost
When you are creating your list of the schools that you want to apply to, you should also take an estimate of how much each school is likely to cost. This will help you to put a price tag on your decisions, and it will also give you a better idea of how hard it will be to pay for school. Some schools provide scholarship and it will be a good idea to contact a career guidance expert to learn more about how you can apply for any financial aid from universities that provide them.
