5 Ways You Can Become a Successful Entrepreneur in College

As a student, you will be presented with lots of opportunities during college or university, such as different internships or you will be asked to join an organization. As a student, you should definitely apply for anything you can during your spare time. Many students will realize that even after getting a degree, it’s not that easy to get a job. Most employers are searching for experience in all of their candidates and without it, it will be extremely hard to get a job.

Below, you will learn 5 different ways you can become a successful entrepreneur:

1. Trainings organized by corporations

One way corporations and firms are hiring is by organizing courses with the help of colleges that offer majors in entrepreneurship and recruit the best students for their programs. After these courses, students can become aware and use the entrepreneur mindset. They also learn communication skills and find out how to work in a team with their employees.

2. Enter an internship program

Another good way to gain some experience and get a job or start your own company is to enter an internship program. Large companies now organize contests or simply put out offers for internships to some colleges. This will help you gain experience and maximize your chances of getting a job after graduating. From this internship, you may even earn some cash and have the chance to start your own business.

“Be so good they can’t ignore you.” – Steve Martin

3. Learn as much as you can in college

Any good entrepreneur must learn how to minimize risks and maximize his or her profits and gains. One extremely useful skill you will need is coding. During college you should take up a course that will teach you how to code because technical skills are really sought after. Due to this, at least try and learn the basics of CSS and HTML. Find yourself a team and build something, make an iPhone or an Android app so you are ahead of the competition.

4. Go to meet-ups with successful people

A lot of colleges or universities organize meet-ups with successful entrepreneurs and they will sometimes even hold seminars. Different people from various domains will offer some great insight into their branch that will help you form your own opinion and maybe even get into these domains.

“To be successful, you have to be able to relate to people; they have to be satisfied with your personality to be able to do business with you and to build a relationship with mutual trust.” – George Ross

5. Plan for an idea while in school

Let’s face it; you have a lot of free time in college so think of a great idea. Get a couple of close friends and share those ideas with them. If they think they’re good enough, then go ahead and prepare a business plan!

Describe everything in it and plan it out in a realistic fashion. Present your idea anywhere you can, search for some investors that might be interested in your idea and you might have a start. If they like it and would be willing to invest, go ahead and sell it! By the time college is over you can actually call yourself a real entrepreneur.

    Good article. In a college or university, students have many opportunities to learn new skills. During study there is always enough free time. It is important to use your time correctly. I would like to add a few tips that I adhered to during college. 1. Work on yourself, constantly. It is just necessary to constantly improve, to look for new sources of information. Read, write, and decide. Do not be afraid to prove yourself, take part in everything that you consider interesting: olympiads, contests, competitions, grants, trips. 2. Set goals, achieve them, rejoice in your small victories, enjoy them. 3. Talented by nature people are very few. Most achieve success through hard daily work. 4. It is necessary to try to get the initial work experience. After using these tips, you can get a good job after college.

“Wer will dass die Welt so bleibt, will nicht dass sie bleibt.” was said by Erich Fried. Translation – If you want the world to remain as it is, then you don’t want the world to remain at all.

The first time I came across this quote was a few years ago on the Berlin Wall. It is from the 1981 book, Lebenschatten, by German poet, Erich Fried. And while the Berlin Wall was still to remain for another eight years after the book was published, almost forty years later, this quote is completely relevant in almost every situation. (more…)
