It's a bit hard to practice what you learn in school when it comes to the real world. Your experiences, knowledge, and education has to mesh together to understand the consequences of your decisions. Many college graduates are losing out on opportunities because they do not have the adequate experience in their fields; this is a heart breaker in the midst of our economy and current job market. Sometimes it makes little sense to try to find work whenever you have no experience which turns into a struggle if you have experience without the proper degree. As tragic as this mix up seems to be, there are a few steps to take in order to unlearn a few lessons in school in order to succeed in your career.

Pay Attention to Industry Leaders

Leaders tend to have their background information all over the internet. Sometimes if you want to become the best, you have to research how the best began their journey. For instance, top MBA students study benchmarks, integrate business operation skills and applications, and inherit a sense of accomplishment by using leading business practices to earn their degrees. Very few MBA graduates use these exact skills in their work environment because the demands are different; you have to be able to pay attention, adapt, and utilize resources just like industry leaders.



Ask yourself a few questions when you consider entering a field:

What did the industry's leaders do to begin?
How can I integrate this into my career path?
How can I match their accomplishments?
Where could I gain this advantage to excel in an organization?

If you can look into yourself and compare what you have to offer, you may find a pattern that links your characteristics to that of trailblazers. A lot of undergraduates and MBA grads tap into these resources to establish a sense of being in their career goals. You can use these same principles when trying to figure out which way to go in order to succeed in your chosen field.

Offer Services Part-Time to Count as Experience

College students always hear about starting a part-time ‘gig' in order to gain customer service, sales, and marketing experience for a future career. All of these skills are essential to landing the perfect position with a growing company. Consider the benefits associated with starting a part-time business in college:

Sense of leadership/accomplishment
Ownership of a customer-oriented service
Extra source of income for rainy days
Build a network of associates/colleagues to partner with in the future

The list can go on and on if you really want to learn the benefits of unlearning rules of school. You cannot work from the line of a textbook to succeed; you have to learn how to work with others in collaboration. A lot of college graduates lack the proper network which leads to unemployment - you can go against the grains by starting early. Keep your head up and focus on the principles of unlearning the dynamics of a classroom scenario so you can adapt to your environment. Remember, the one who adapts the best can make it a little further than one that can't change. You also have to remain open-minded and unique in your environment to add depth/breadth to an organization's creativeness.
