There is Life After College Graduation

If you’re going back to graduate school in the next few months, look into a part-time job or even a volunteer position so you don’t waste your summer. “Volunteer projects are great because you typically leave the project feeling good about yourself, learning a new skill and meeting some new people,” Jackson says. “All of these can be used to your advantage when it comes to understanding what kind of career might be fulfilling for you.”

Whatever path you consider, enjoy the journey along the way. Take in your emotions and uncertainty and use them as a springboard for success during the first 30 days and beyond. After all, your commencement speaker who proclaimed “the world is at your feet” wasn’t exaggerating. It’s yours for the taking.
