Key Takeaways:

What is in your book bag?

  • We put everything in our bag that we need to prepare for our day and this still happens when you get a job post-graduation.
  • College stressors and work stressors are the same, but all the stress you face in life will pay off.
  • Everything you are doing now is helping you to prepare for real life.

How can you prepare?

  • There is no set in stone schedule in your work day. Get ready to adapt and always be on the  move.
  • Join PRSSA and 1804 Communication, get an internship, network, lead something, volunteer, embrace your quirks, be self aware and have fun!

 

It’s okay to not have a job right when you graduate. Take some time to find a place that matches your professional values.

That’s all for now! Join us next week at 6 p.m. in the Friends of the Library Room for our next meeting. If you can’t make it, you can watch our Live stream on Facebook or check back here for another meeting recap!
