You’ve Graduated – Now What?

You’ve spent the last three or more years fully immersed in university life, you’ve handed in all your work and taken your last exams. You’ve celebrated your graduation with your nearest and dearest and your time there is done, now what?

Where do you go from here?

Some of your friends may have already been offered their graduate jobs but there is no shame if you are still unsure of what direction you want to go in.

Here are some ideas to get you moving forward with life after uni…

Study – Staying on for a post graduate course certainly isn’t for everyone but if you do want to further your knowledge in your field and can manage it financially then why not consider it as an option.
Maybe you just aren’t ready to leave your university life just yet.

Internships – An internship can be something you manage to get into before even finishing uni and can get your foot in the door for your chosen career. Work hard and be professional for a glowing reference when you move on.
Not all internships will lead to a job unfortunately but it will give you fantastic experience.

Graduate Jobs – It’s never too late to find a graduate job but do be prepared for the stiff competition. There could be hundreds of applicants for the same job and many companies will require you to have a specific degree.

Also take the time to make sure your online presence is up to date and up to scratch before even applying for any jobs. Potential employers will more than likely check you out online so don’t have anything online you wouldn’t want them to see.

Take A Break – You’ve worked crazy hard over the last three years and you may just want to take a break and that’s okay too. You may want a holiday, to go traveling, try working overseas or just to take a year out. The world is your oyster so go out there and make the most of it.
