"Finally, we are FREEEeeeee....Oh crap, what now??"
When we were in Elementary School, we prayed for no school.
When we were in High School, we skipped school (some more than others).
When we were in College/University, we counted down the days till we are going to be done.
But now that we're here there are a lot of us wondering, what's next?
If you don't know, shame on you because you should've jumped on this train at least midway to the last year of school. The world isn't over, it's just going to be a little more difficult now. There are 3 big things you could and should do, here they are:
- School's not over, we lied: If you want to further your studies or pursue another path, you should get in touch with the school at which you wish to go to and apply FAST. (Financial Aid is where you should be)
- Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting jobs: What ever field you are in, find its' job bank! Monster and Workopolis are great but they're too broad and you will not find what you're looking for. The chances are, there's a job waiting for you and you don't even know about it.
- Quit you complaining: So if you don't have the greatest of luck finding anything, don't be afraid of non-paid internships. Sure, you don't get paid but you're getting something that you can't buy, experience.
- Luck just isn't on your side: Please don''t cry "why me, why me." It's not the end of the world. If you don't get anything right away, that's alright, just don't give up. Put yourself out there, don't be afraid of volunteering because you can get two powerful things from there; connections and field experience.
Out of all of this, there is one thing you should always remember...NEVER GIVE UP.
