The graduating class of 2013 faces an uneven job market. Demand for graduates with a degree in computer science, engineering and accounting is strong, while the job outlook for those with degrees in social sciences and the humanities are bleak.
“The key to success in today’s job market is knowing what works and what doesn’t,” says Dr David DeLong, author of “Graduate to a Great Job: Make Your College Degree Pay Off in Today’s Market.”
According to DeLong, “The fact is about half of new graduates do launch their careers successfully. The question is what are they doing differently.”
Over 1.5 million college students are currently looking for employment. Unfortunately, a high number of these graduates will find a job that does not require a college degree.
If you have been out of work and spinning your wheels looking for a job, you no doubt have been working at cross-purposes to the Universe, frustration and depression will follow, which leads to a downward spiral.
Astrology can help give you information, insights, timing of your job search and landing your job.
The planet Jupiter the giver of luck and fortune, opens doors and creates opportunity. When Jupiter is at the same degree as your Sun, either in the same sign, or a sign that is 3 signs away, or the opposite sign this will be the time that opportunity in a job search is best for you.
During this time you should make an effort the build your foundation in job hunting. Update and rewrite your resume, look at job posting boards, get the word out, and network.
Jupiter will open the door; it will be up to you to walk through the door prepared to make an impression.
The planet Saturn, symbolizes hard work, the time it takes to accomplish anything, and accepting accountability and responsibility. A Saturn aspect to your Sun means you can land a new job, or improve your current job situation.
A Uranus transit to your Sun means expected the unexpected, anything can happen. You may be laid off, or unexpectedly have your dream job given to you. This transit is a chance to do something different. Many people change careers under this energy. If you are wondering whether or not the reorganization in your company will impact your job, take a look at the Uranus/Sun transit in your Astrological forecast. If you have a Uranus aspect to your Sun, then it is time to dust off your resume and look for a new job, your pink slip is just weeks away.
The planet Neptune transit to your Sun is a difficult transit to have if you want to make a career move. With a Neptune transit it is easy to fool yourself or overlook the practical points of remaining in your high paying yet stressful job, for a move to a tropical island and seek employment there. A Neptune transit is a time to dream, and when you awake from the dream the reality will not live up to expectation.
A Pluto transit is the perfect time to seek new employment opportunities. During this transit it is important that you stay focused, and not be pulled into power struggles with others. Pluto transits demand transformation. If you are not ready to make a move, Pluto will do it for you, and not in a manner that you will like, such as the unexpected lay-off just before Christmas, or just when you applied for a mortgage on your first home. Ouch!
The Pluto transit is the perfect time to seek counseling, vocational or psychological, on how to improve yourself, your skills, and your image. Understanding how you make the decisions you make and how they have been holding you back from where you want to go, needs to be explored during a Pluto transit.
An appointment with a professional Astrologer will help you navigate through your job search. Your Astrologer will help you know when is the best time for you to land a new job, what to look for and do in the interview and where to seek employment.
