It can be overwhelming to apply for your first full-time job once you graduate. You studied hard. Now you’re ready to start your career and apply what you’ve learned. As you begin your journey, remind yourself that you have accomplished an important milestone. You now have a degree.
Trust yourself and trust that you can build on what you have learned. Find a job that will fulfill you and that will take you where you want to be. You are in control. This is a key mistake that too many graduates make. They feel that the employers are the ones in control and that they are at the mercy of the job market. Not true. You create your own reality. Think outside of the box. Make it happen.
