Life is ahead and full of opportunities and so many jobs to consider as a fresh graduate. My advice? Look for internships in any field related to your studies or in which you have basic knowledge so you can advance easily. If you expertise at something, or have a talent of any sort, emprace it. Look for enhancement courses and take them. Continuously apply for related jobs and don’t be afraid of criticism and interviews, one day you’ll make it. And if you keep fighting, you’ll own it pretty fast.
The working industry in any field is wide open and full of opportunities. Here, take some major career life advice no body will tell you about.
Your first job doesn’t have to be your major
Don’t worry much about this, start with any job just as long as you’re not staying long, actually one year is very sufficient to build experience. Especially in a job different than your major.
I only stayed 8 months in my first job. But my case was different, I chose to be a writer, I had a vision prohibitted me from starting in a major that doesn’t give me much of a space to gain positions or develop in my career. I only looked for internships that excels me in writing, marketing, and social media. Beside that, I used marketing, blogging, wordpress and SEO courses to add weight to my resume and skills.
There are many jobs to consider as a fresh graduate. But as long as you have this vision of youself, your future, where you want to be, what you want to be doing for a living. Then you’re all set. Try as much as you can to stick to the path so that any footsteps you take add into it.
Your 20s are lonelier than you think they’ll be
OK. Hate to be the one who says this to you, but no matter how hard you try to stick with your old school friends, life will take you apart. Between family affairs, work schedules and your newly-assigned duties as a responsible grown-up, you’ll find it pretty hard to gather around as much with your gang like you used to do every day in the near past.

Paperwork doesn’t end at Uni. It’ll increase
Sorry about that too. But stating facts like these in the beginning of you stepping forward in your life will help diminish your shock reaction and help you stabilize the management of your new life chapter. Paper work will still be handled, you’ll be required to submit reports, execute strategies, constantly update your resume and collect your productions in a portfolio to show case your work to employers.
In a different manner of course, you won’t be asked to solve final exams or be graded (unless in courses) However, this time you’ll mostly willingly do the requirements, while not being pushed-over like in college days.
Emails are the essence of your career
Don’t ignore them even if you don’t like them, I don’t. In fact, if you want to give me feedback on this blog, I’d like you to reach me out on my Linkedin.
Back to our topic, in the career world, an email is a contract. Emails are the affirmations of the on-going tasks, meetings, and agreements with clients. You need to document everything that happens in order to save a lot of fuss over who said or who forgot. Social media chatting platforms are not a professional way to manage work matters.
