A year after my college graduation

Be patient

We normally hear that students land a job as soon as they finished school. In my case and in many other, it’s not the case.

Don’t look for the ideal job

Let me be clear, you might find an incredible job when graduating, but the chances of it happening are low.

Develop great habits that will last long

We love to set goals or dream about a specific financial situation. But goals only are reachable by working.

Keep your student mind

What did you do the most during your college years? (Apart from drinking of course)

Think often

Ask yourself what you like and what you want to do in your life. A career path isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.

Stay curious

A great character trait young graduates should have is being curious. You want to know more, you ask questions on why your boss is acting this way, etc.

What now?

What do I do now you might ask? You just finished school or you’re going to get your diploma in May.
