People have different plans after graduating from college, Very few are lucky to land a job, Some prepare for masters degree and most of them start looking for a job. But for some the job searching goes for a long time. Many of them start doing odd jobs that hardly takes care of their living expenses. Some of them start getting attracted to the illegal ways to earn money. What students don’t realize is that they need counselling. Even people who are clear about what they want to do but don,t know where are to start, need a mentor.
Some of us struggle to know what they want to do in their life, what subject they should take in their college , which degree or training to go for and there are so many institutes and people who offer them a million suggestions without knowing if that’s what they will be interested to do.They just see money as basic priority and I am not saying that it shouldn’t be the priority. Money is an important priority but it should not be your first priority.
Most of us choose their career path looking at their elders, friends or someone who made a fortune after choosing the particular career path. What they don’t realize is, if they choose it blindly, that path will seem boring and suffocating to them after sometime.They will quit or regret it their whole life.
You need to have patience. You need to give yourself time to research for what interests you and how you can make money with the same.That time you will give yourself to make that decision will be the most productive thing you would ever do.You can start your own business with the same set of skill you learned.It doesn’t have to be some mundane job.It’s always better to create jobs then to search for one.
Most of us are confused with what they are good at and they struggle to find it. What you need is a person who knows you and can help you finding that talent or interest you have. You can go for a counselling session. And i mean the ones who make you understand what different fields have to offer and analyze your interests and what you are good at.
Don’t hesitate to take time to think what you want to do. People will tell you that you are wasting time but if you choose the career path that is popular at that particular time, without knowing if it’s a right fit for you, At the time when you will be regretting your decision, Same people will tell you, “You should have thought about it before”.
Don’t rush into making the most important decisions of your life.
