Graduating from university is exciting, but it’s deciding what to do after you graduate that can be rather stressful. Do you continue with school or start looking for work? Some students may have it all planned out, whilst others prefer to live in the “now”.
It is important to know what your options are after graduating, in order to properly decide what you want and where you are going. Make use of career guidance centres, career fairs and any other resources that are offered. Talk to those who have graduated from your field – you may learn a thing or two. Furthermore, step out of your comfort zone and take risks, it will only build your self-confidence.
Life after graduation is not as “scary” as people make it seem. However, in order to be successful, you have to be persistent, determined and hard working. It’s okay to make mistakes – use them as learning curves.
As stated by Christian D. Larson, “Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle”.
