How To Figure Out Your Post Grad Life

The scariest part of college is graduating and what happens after, mostly because it is unknown and the “real world”. The sooner you start planning, the more secure you will hopefully feel. So this is how you prepare for your post grad life.


Figure Out Your End Goal

I’m pretty sure there is something you want to do with your future, even if it seems a little crazy or out of the box. But maybe, just maybe, that goal is worth pursuing and is not as crazy as you think. Especially if you went to college, you must have gone with a career in mind. Look at why you went to college in the first place, and what you want to do now, and make one of those your end goal.



Decide How You Want To Pursue It

With your goal in mind, decide what is the best action to pursue it. Is it grad school? Is it an entry level job? Is it starting your own business? There are probably multiple ways to get to your goal, it’s up to you to figure out the best path for you.


Look At Your Means

Obviously, we don’t all have a Mary Poppins bag of resources at our disposable, so looking at your means is necessary. Do you have the money to afford grad school? Will your new job involve relocating and can you do so? It’s fine and dandy to have dreams, but they won’t be a reality without means.


Have A Plan B

Sometimes you think of the best, most perfect plan A, and it doesn’t happen or your means don’t fit your plan. Or your method of pursuit doesn’t work out. A plan B is a good plan to have, because it doesn’t me you are quitting your dreams, just taking a different path.


Don’t Freak Out

I don’t know about you, but I get quite anxious thinking about the future. However, freaking out and panicking are not all that conducive for getting the work done to have a successful post grad life. So relax, take it a couple steps at a time, and remember that life is not easy, but you can thrive with a little work.

What’s your post grad plan? Let me know in the comments.

    I needed something like this when I graduated two years ago haha. I somewhat have my life together now I think but sometimes I feel like I am still not a real adult.

    We are so young when we go to College… Then, life is so different to what we dream at that age!
    Great tips, especially having a plan B (or C and D) ;-).
    I never had such optional plans. I had to figure them out through life. Live the present, the future comes alone, anyway 😉
