Courses in Egypt, online ones, in particular, have been steadily increasing in number ever since the pandemic took place. Some people graduated during the pandemic, while others were laid off from their jobs because of the pandemic. However, what most adults and young adults had in common were two things, they were staying at home and they needed jobs. That was when the influx of online courses in Egypt began, with online learning growing over 45 percent since the Covid outbreak. Signing up and taking a course can effectively help anyone in increasing their chances of being accepted into a job. It can serve different needs, such as learning a new language or skill, improving a language, or strengthening certain technical abilities.
Moving on to finding the right job. As a fresh graduate, it can be tough deciding and finding the desired job or career path. First things first, when deciding on a career path or job, a person needs to keep something in mind, which is to look for the career path they’re most passionate about. People need to assess and ask themselves, what are my interests? What are my strengths and skills? What education, courses, or training do I need? Basically starting from the inside out, understanding their personalities and abilities first so that they could decide which career path or jobs fit them best. There are numerous ways to find jobs.

Taking those part-time jobs and performing well at them will give the undergraduate student a headstart for when they graduate and start applying for jobs.
