The end of your undergraduate career is finally approaching, or perhaps the memorable day has already passed. Regardless of your position, brace yourself for the vast future of endless opportunities that will be available for you. You have reached that optimal moment in time, where the skills and tenacity that helped you through college, are required to succeed in the so-called “real” world. Here are some tips on how to remain calm and collected during your transitioning process to adulthood.
Update your resume
It’s time to gather all that internship or volunteer experience, and make note of it on your resume. You dedicated long hours and service to gain experience in your desired field, and should receive recognition from employers who are seeking such candidates. Also, add any part-time or full-time positions that you balanced while enrolled in school. All work experience is important, especially if it’s relevant within the past ten years.
Meeting new people can be intimidating, but as you grow older, it will only be of benefit. Seeking new friendships with people who have similar interests as yourself, can lead to employment opportunities and unexpected relationships. It can create friendships that are stronger than the ones you previously maintained.
Find a hobby
Never forget to set aside personal time for yourself. If you enjoy playing sports, join an adult league to meet people and stay active. If you are interested in a healthier lifestyle, consider becoming a gym member or going for daily runs. Whatever brings you comfort and pleasure, is worth devoting a period of time to.
Remember the reason as to why you chose to pursue a college education. Is there a specific career you wish to pursue? Are you planning on enrolling in a master’s program? These significant decisions can easily be forgotten, once one is dismissed from the undergraduate responsibilities. Keep your head in the game and what is meant to be will eventually happen.
