New grads: How to answer "What kind of job do you want?"

recent college graduate job seeker
I often ask recent college graduates, "What kind of job do you want?", or "What do you want to do?" Almost universally, I get the same answer ... and that answer could be killing these grads' chances of landing a well-paying job. 

The answer they give? An enthusiastic ...
"I can do anything!" 

Why is this a bad answer? Employers want to hire specialists, not generalists. They want to hire people who match their job descriptions as closely as possible because that gives them confidence that you know what you are doing. When you say that you can do anything, they don't know how to categorize you and people you network with don't know how to help you. 

Even more importantly not knowing what you want to do can lead to a lifetime of low paying, unsatisfying jobs.  

But what if you don't know what you want to do or don't know what job titles match your skills and interests? 

Fortunately there is now a solution: The groundbreaking WiserU Career System, a web-based system created by WiserU's Kathy Bernard consisting of progressive video tutorials, take action guides, templates, and a community forum that will train you exactly what to do and say to dramatically improve your job chances.

It will not only reveal to you what you really want to do, it will also teach you how to:

  • Articulate what you want and why you're the best job candidate
  • Apply for jobs on employer sites, which reject up to 95% of applications because they don't match the job or are improperly formatted
  • Transform your resume to score extremely high for positions
  • Create cover letters, emails and samples that get results
  • Develop a strong LinkedIn profile to increase your chances dramatically
  • Enlist recruiters to get the inside track on opportunities
  • Network your way into contention
  • Interview with confidence
  • Negotiate salary to overcome objections and get more money 
  • Excel on the job -- which is essential for your career success

You can proceed through the system at your own pace -- watch the videos ... study the take action guides ... complete the resume and LinkedIn profile templates ... and get expert help through the community forum ... as soon as you sign up and pay.

Seasoned job seeker? While the WiserU Career System is targeted to recent college graduates, the guidance provided is rock solid whether you are just getting started or are already well-established, but seeking a new or better position. So, even if you've been working for years, the WiserU Career System can help you land a better, higher paying position.

There is no guarantee that the WiserU Career System will get you hired into a well-paying position or keep you employed once hired. Other factors, including a down economy; a lack of required experience or education (or misstatement to employers about your experience or education); not following the guidance provided; personal issues and/or limitations; and limited opportunities in your field, industry or geographic area, may negatively impact your employment. The WiserU Career System is a 100% web-based system. Personalized coaching and services are available in our combination packages.
