So either you just finished college and have a huge debt to pay off, or you’re going to start college real soon with not a lot of money.
You expect to make money and pay off all the debts right after school, right? Well that may be, but unfortunately the hard truth is – you’re going to be left in the cold.
Students go to college for 4 years, which cost way too much, and then they graduate and find out they don’t have actual experience to actually find a job that’s good.
They’ve been so sunk into books all those years, they never learned how to actually apply what they were studying! They were studying just to get a good grade!
And then you keep not applying it, because you can’t really get a job in that major you studied in.
So it dies off inside of you, you kind of forget it and college now seems like a big “Why the hell did I do that?”
But you still got your degree at least…yeah.
So what makes this piece of paper so valuable? It’s some kind of mistaken belief that this paper will make you successful, this is completely ridiculous.
It’s your ability to apply what you studied in school which makes you successful, even if the paper got you a job, it won’t let you keep it for long if you don’t learn how to actually DO something.
I was amazed when I finished my first real business course here at the Hubbard College, to be honest I was a little afraid to be honest to be sent out to a company. I was expecting to be kind of a total newbie to the stuff.
But I came to the company and you really apprentice, you get assigned an employee in the company who is familiar with what you studied. It’s nice to know that TONS of companies are applying what we are learning here.
So we sat down and I could completely see all the aspects I learned and I saw it come to life a little bit. It became so real to me!
When you see it in real life, it sticks way better to your mind.
Kind of like “a picture speaks a thousand words”, you know?
Because Sitting Around Waiting For Something to Happen Will Get You Nowhere
Sometimes we all look for answers, solutions to those aaaccching questions we have. Where am I going? What’s the point of it all?
I used to be like that.
I sat around, hung with friends, played games, chased girls, slept, studied, etc. But then came a point in my life, where I realized that I wasn’t going in any direction at all, even though I had told myself I wanted to become successful one day.
And I wish that point had come to me a lot earlier.
I got up and started looking for answers; I looked for it in my own country. I even thought I had it for a while by doing Commercial Engineering. I finished the first out of four years and found out it wasn’t the solution.
I then got a lousy job (because I couldn’t get hired because of my inexperience), worked at it for 2 years, didn’t get me anywhere.
Luckily my dad came to me one random day in May, and said there might be something for me to “just take a look at”. This was a slick looking Business Administration College in Los Angeles called Hubbard College, I said “Why not check it out and enjoy the sun while I’m there?”
Who would have guessed that was the best decision of my life.
I quickly signed up for the Business Administration Degree they offer.
I now not only get a great education, I get actual experience. They send me out to companies as an apprentice, and eventually as an intern, to actually learn to APPLY what you study.
This seemed like such a good idea, they even HELP you find a job. And they have gotten about every graduate one, isn’t that amazing?
With This Management Degree, You’ll be an Executive Godsend
Companies are letting go of a lot of jobs, this is true. What is not true however is that it is impossible to find a job. When people go for an interview, they just have nothing to show their potential employer that they accomplished something in life.
All they ever did was read, read and read. This might get you some grades, but does it give you any experience and real results in life? Not really.
I remember going to a company to apply my basic organization theory course. I had to make an Organizing Board and create an organized and trained group of people.
I had such an amazing time doing it.
Studying is one thing, but actually doing it is a whole different ball game.
After I was looking at my final product, an organized company who knew exactly its purpose and goal as a company and who had an organizing board they could use, I was just so sure that I could apply this to any company, and more importantly my life.
See an organization doesn’t always just mean a business; you organize your life constantly right? You decide when you get dinner, you organize that in your schedule. You organize parties for your friends, you organize how you are going to invite them, you organize who is going to bring the drinks. You organize.
So why would you not want to able to organize a whole company? It’s the same thing, just on a bigger scale. It’s not hard at all.
“Yeah, you make it sound easy, but I have a company of (only 3)/(20)/(500) employees.” It doesn’t matter, the organizing board assigns responsibilities to persons and just indicates what their product is and what their goal is.
Each job and post has its own purpose in a company, even if one person does a whole lot, if you can put them all in its correct place, it’s ORGANIZED.
I encourage every frustrated CEO who does all the work in his company by himself to check out this course. It’s vital to you.
And I encourage every student out of high school, or college student to come do some of these amazing courses or even get started on the Associate Degree.
Lots of schools can give you an administration degree, but what they often can’t give you is competence in your ability to DO.
So you graduated university. Awesome. So you scored well on your tests. Awesome. So you want to start making money. Grrreat… We’ll get right on that…
I like America for a lot of things, but the general schooling is one thing I don’t agree with. Universities cost a ton of money and teach you a lot of things you aren’t going to use later. It’s sad to see so many people spend so much money on ‘college’ and then get stuck in this horrible drag with no way to ever pay back their college debt.
You finish college; got this huge debt and you need to find a job. You’ll probably start off by calling your mom, see if you can crash there for a short while. Of course you can.
The first weeks you’re back, you just want to have some vacation. I mean you just graduated right?! A month goes by and you are feeling confident, and start searching for some job applications. Hmmm, there aren’t many jobs available right now… Oh here’s one!
The interview didn’t go so well, they were looking for someone with experience. You didn’t have that yet, because college only taught you to KNOW stuff in your career education, not to DO stuff.
You can’t get a job for a while, you then start giving blame. It’s the economy’s fault! It’s the evil corporations! At first it seems to be that way, until you just start blaming the most random things, it’s that one girls’ fault! It’s “that dinner I had Friday's fault. It just stops making sense and you get scared, and then get sad and then hopeless.
This is how it goes.
So you want to change that? Awesome. So you want to get a life and start a career? Awesome! And you want to start making money right after college? Sure, we can help you with that.
That’s Hubbard College, every student who has graduated has been assisted in getting a job in the field they are interested in. The school has contact with an endless amount of companies throughout the world who are alumni or just familiar with the results the Associate degree students produce.
Companies are looking for people who can DO stuff, and do them right. Many of my friends here have graduated and could immediately decide to start working at a place they would like to work at.
There is always job placement, there is never an exception. A graduate will ALWAYS find a job when they graduate.
I want to start my own company and be an entrepreneur. I am going to work back in my own country for a while at my dads’ welding company and during that time I will apply the tools I learned here at college to create a plan to launch my business after about a year.
So if you’re having any trouble with finding a job or your current college’s education, let me know.
Learn How to Get People to Basically Sell YOUR Product to Themselves
Don’t you just hate it when a sales person walks up to you and you can tell he doesn’t care one bit about your needs? Or if he is being really fake and nice, then you end up buying the worst possible product for the craziest amount of money.
Here are some things people HATE about most salesmen:
• They talk too much, and in a confusing way
• Not to the point, excluding the negative side of the products
• Arrogant & self-absorbed, they don’t care about you
• They try to hurry you and forcing you to buy it NOW, NOW, NOW!
I personally dislike their insincerity the most, “Well hello handsome young man! I bet I can interest you in an excellent vacuum cleaner today! You look like you could use a good sucker…”
Last Friday we had a Sales Workshop, given by Nick Terrenzi, a senior executive here at the college. And it was GOOOOOOOOD.
So many think that a sales person was born, he had that gift, that charisma. I always thought that’s why I was kind of good at it, because I was born that way.
But after the workshop I realized there is a technology behind selling, one that I was only using a little bit already, but unknowingly. They are really easy to follow, and it will get sales up so greatly if you truly apply all the aspects.
It’s important to care for your customer, make sure he gets what he NEEDS. Salesmanship is not about getting money, it’s getting what’s right for the consumer.
A lot of people have lost that way of thinking, they’re just thinking about how much they can get from you and then kick you out and never call again, like a bad date.
If you are an entrepreneur, a salesman, someone who is looking to start doing this kind of business or just a student trying to find a job – send me an e-mail and I’ll let you know when the next sales workshop is.
For students on the associate degree the workshops at school are free, by the way. It’s a must in career education.
P.S. There was even a guy from my country (Holland) all the way out here just to do the workshop and the sales training course, that’s how good it is!
