I didn’t understand the fact that I graduated from College until I entered the football stadium wearing the “Graduating hat” . And I walked to the stands, reading messages from my fellow graduates on the big Stadium screens. Sharing their favorite memories of students over the past four years, including first-year roommates and partners celebrating the end of final exams with their cronies. While watching these videos, you are quite busy with two things they put in the heart of horror: this is the last time I will sit at the University Stadium as a student, and in a few short moments, I’m graduating from college. So where do I go next? and some graduates have the option to stay in College for the summer because they applied for graduate studies, and others to work as beginners in some companies, and others have returned to their homes. Whatever your situation, it is important to make the most of the early months following graduation.
Benefit from your alumni network
When I graduated I had one of the largest alumni networks in the world at my disposal. Regardless of the size of your University, try to take advantage of communication, knowledge and expertise that can be offer to you via these groups. Don’t be afraid to communicate with successful alumni in the areas that interest you. Try to refrain from direct demand of graduates to help you find a job. Instead, ask them to share stories of their career with you. What steps they took to become what they are today.
Don’t give in to frustration quickly
Many of us will write tens of cover letters, tens of applications and will not receive any reply. Remember, even successful staff were like you one day looking for a job and received rejections, and see what they are now.
Consider graduate school
If you are sure that graduate school is important in your future, consider standardized tests while searching for a job. I was told that many young professionals wished if they could get the GRE test or GMAT during the first months of their graduation from college. Now is the perfect time to examine standardized tests. We continue our discontented hours spend in the library, and get to work and study habits types read about areas in which we work.
Think of an having Internship
If you decide to take unpaid training, make sure it is worth your time. As an intern at a company or organization, especially if the training in a major city. Don’t be afraid to ask questions in interviews regarding training and mentoring that you will receive during training or how often hire interns in the company. It may not always seem appropriate to ask this question, so be sure to measure the corresponding tone before doing so.
Request difficult tasks
If the work that has been assigned to you in a simple and direct, ask for more intellectually. That you don’t trust SideShow Manager or supervisor and their draws for you and for your enthusiasm at work and will trust you more to take challenging projects.
Trust your choices
Often, training or employment may provide Alumni an opportunity to learn about the best career path for them. While it’s important not to write off the entire field just because your first week on the job was not as you expected, you may decide to proceed if you are not satisfied with your job after several months, not several days. But trust your instincts when you feel it’s not the place or area is best for you.
Teach yourself new skills
See editing Assistant in your favorite magazine, one of the main qualifications are proficiency in Photoshop, a skill not owned. Teach yourself using the program by reading how to books and watching tutorials on YouTube.
Read for fun
Now is the perfect time to look into your reading list. Reading will make you more creative, intelligent and well versed in the surroundings, plus it may provide you the ability to start a good conversation in a job interview and a set of new friends.
Don’t allow the obsession with graduate job plans destroy your relationship with your friends. It is imperative to discuss job searching with your fellow alumni. However, the discussion of career anxiety down will lead only to unease among your friends, will put a strain on relationships.

Travel, try a new hobby, and relax.
