A few days ago I graduated from college with a four year degree.
What I didn’t consider this year is what I planned to do once I graduated.
So far I’ve had three days to do whatever I want — the week of Christmas — and I’m already finding myself bored.
Last week I had a job interview but ultimately decided that the company was not a good fit for me. I’m entering 2016 with no idea what I am going to do to make money.
I’m currently enrolled at my community college to begin a new degree in a completely different field. However, having completed one degree already it is difficult to get the scholarships I need to continue my education.
I’m not sure what my next step is. Do I drop those classes because I do not have money to pay for them? Do I start a part time retail job? Should I look for any office job just so that I’m working and making money?
My ultimate goal right now is to move out of my house. I feel that once I’ve accomplished that I will be able to think more clearly about what I want to do with my life.
That’s the scariest thought I’ve had post grad…right now I can do anything that I want. I have a degree from a highly accredited business school and I can work in whatever field I choose.
Throughout the last three and a half years I was in such a hurry to finish school that I never stopped to think about what kind of career I want to pursue.
If I could rewind 2015 I would have tried harder to figure out what it is I want to do with my life.
