Graduates May Find the Best Jobs at Home
There’s nothing wrong with going home after graduating. Especially in this tough economy, where it might take longer than usual to find the job you’re looking for, home offers a comfortable base from which to launch your career search.
There’s no shame in accepting food, clean clothes, and the love and support of family. These days, future employers expect it. To help you and everyone else in the house feel better about you being there, work out a monthly financial contribution or offer to do odd jobs around the house.
Eliminating the financial burden of being out on your own will free up your energy for what you really need to focus on—being resourceful and committed to finding a job. This may be your last chance at such an ideal living arrangement. Take advantage of it!
