I Graduated! Now What?

Do you know the most frustrating thing about college? You get prepared to be knowledgeable in your field, however, no one ever prepares you for the transition to adult life after you graduate. I remember thinking that once I graduated I would find a job that paid anywhere from 45k- 50k in an entry level position. I had this idea because the median salary for my profession was reported to be about 54k. Well, that was not the case. Furthermore, I realized that I didn’t want to pursue the career I majored in. Luckily, I went to a state university so my loans only totaled about $40k as opposed to 100k-300k that a private university could set me back.

You may still be in college or perhaps you’re a recent graduate. You may even be well in your career and now looking to make a career change. The issue at hand is that preparation for navigating the job market is not provided. Did you know that on average it takes 3-9 months for a college graduate to find a job? The job market is broken and we the job seekers are suffering for it.

This is the first in a series of posts that will give you the hacks to help you quickly navigate the job market.  I will be covering things like resume best practices, how to find out what you’re good at, how to earn more, etc. You can also e-mail me any questions you have and I’ll do all the leg work to get you the best answers.

Thanks for reading, I’ll see you next Sunday.
