You did it.
You attended class. You took notes and studied them ruthlessly. You took exams and quizzes and filled out paper.after.paper.after.multiple.choice.question.
The time has come for you to walk across the stage, accept your diploma, and figure out what in HECK you are supposed to do now.
So… do you have it figured out?
Relax. I didn’t either.
When I graduated, I told my parents I wasn’t ready to “be an adult” yet. I wanted one more summer of fun, so I lightly looked for a job while working at a restaurant to pay the bills. I was “free” until my student loan payments kicked in 6 months later.
A REALLY attractive job opportunity appeared before I graduated, and I felt that there was no harm in applying. The problem came when they wanted an in person interview… and then offered my the position. It wasn’t even June, and my “plan to stay young” was completely FOILED!
Well… not quite. Luckily, I was able to negotiate a period of time before I started.
There’s never a “right time” to start looking, start applying, or start adulthood. You just have to jump at what speaks to you and allow yourself opportunities to succeed!
Now, what are you waiting for?
