For many graduates, Life after school can be challenging. Remember that your graduation ceremony means that you are to enter a new life – something new, something fresh. Among the things, you can consider doing is getting a job, enrolling a postgraduate course or choosing to travel the world.

In this informative post, we’ll look at what can a newly grad venture into.

1. Get a Job

Among the first options for you, is getting a job. It’s time to job hunt! Your fellow graduates will be in the job market too. That means you need to come up with an impressive resume or curriculum vitae. Make sure that you show your qualities – strengths, more especially and experiences, to prepare well for the series of job interviews that you will surely have in the next months.

You may not have that much job experience but you can highlight the school activities that you joined when you were in college and highlight that part in your resume.

Never ever go to an interview without researching about the company. For sure, they will check if you did your assignment.

That is an unspoken homework for people who are looking for jobs. 

Make sure to dress presentable and never slouch during the interview.

If you think you are not prepared, then maybe improving your self-confidence first can be considered. Remember though that nobody can be ready for a job interview.  You just get better at it every interview session.

2. Think about Self Employment and Investing in Yourself

You can choose to set up your own company. For instance, if you have a business idea, you can decide to implement it. Many universities offer career services that can help you to turn tour dream into a reality.

Somehow, the most successful people started because no company wants them in. Have you heard the story of Jack Ma? The Founder of Alibaba Group of Ali Express?

He was fired a number of times and so, he decided to have his own business.

If you think entrepreneurship is for you, then give it a try.

Investing in yourself can be another broad topic. How do you invest in yourself?

By making yourself marketable. How do you that?

By reading books and honing your intellect to the field that you are into. Attend seminars and start networking with people. Because you’ll never know how they can impact your life in the long run.

3. Take a Gap Year

Taking a gap year can help you learn new languages or find out about new cultures. Travelling the world can help you in boosting your resume and developing new skills.

How? you ask?

If you travel the world, you put yourself out there. You get out of your comfort zone and you develop your confidence in dealing with other people.

When you travel a different country, you can see things in a different perspective because you get to understand the culture of other people. At the same time, you can meet people too who can also teach you tons of life lessons.

In a nutshell, life after school can be one of the toughest parts of your life because you are starting to enter a new world of, adulting. You start paying your bills, earning your own money and most especially, you make your mark in this world.

Although life after school can be challenging, never give up on your dream and this is the best time to explore your options and become the person that you have been dreaming of.

Its okay to be hurt, and feel the pain of being broken. but you always have to know how to stand up all by yourself

You only lost the person but the essence and memories you created with him/her will never be forgotten. Memories that you know the only thing left to remember someone very special to you. Saddest thing is that you know its the only thing you have and you know you can’t do anything than to move forward and start a new.

Memories and the feelings remain in our hearts and mind, even we lost the person it will always be there. If we lost someone we should not remember the person with the fact that she/he leaves us but rather we must remember the person with those happy memories we made together. hihi

Memories will never stay as they are because it can be a strength or a weakness. It’s up to us to decide whether we will win the situation or we’ll just give up by doing nothing.

Sometimes being optimistic can take us to the level where we refuse to consider defeat. We forget that we have to let go some things that are not meant for us. When that time comes… we can feel the true relief of success

Acceptance is the key to not be a “bitter person”. It is a must for us to embrace that “acceptance”.

This poem really caotured my heart, from the start to the end. I love how it goes. The unspeakable words feeling of losing the one you love but still those remain in your heart.
