WHY ARE YOU WORRIED?
A man of the cloth once told me……
” If you are going to worry, pray. And if you pray, don’t worry.”
Girls, do not worry your pretty little heads over not being employed upon graduation. Being jobless will not kill you. It is not a curse. Don’t listen to the man. And that nasty voice inside your head aka your parents….JUST DON’T.
Yes, you need to earn money. I won’t lie. You have loans. bills. life. And that is okay….you can get a job to tide you over in the meantime. Just because you graduated doesn’t mean it ends there. The average person has 8 careers in a lifetime so chill the fuck out. According to a recent report from the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2016, a whopping 88% of college graduates are launching with jobs. The unemployment rate for college grads is higher (5.8%) than the average (5.0%). Its all good. You will find your way, I promise. Just stay focused on yourself and your goals. It will happen with focus sweat equity and determination. Trust me. You will be working for the rest of your life. That’s a LONG fucking time. Take a deep breath and keep it moving. Live at home for as long as the rents will let you. And take the time to spend more time talking to people, networking, learning what is out there. YOU have no idea how much opportunity is out there . You are just getting started. TRUST…….
5 THINGS TO DO AFTER YOU GRADUATE AND YOU ARE JOBLESS:
- DESIGN. YOUR LIFE. USE DESIGN THINKING TEMPLATES TO EXPLORE YOUR MIND SOUL HEART . DISCOVER WHAT ELSE IS OUT THERE FOR YOU. ROCK AN INTERNSHIP.
- LEVERAGE. SOCIAL MEDIA, SPECIFICALLY LINKED IN….SPEND AS MUCH TIME ON LINKED IN AS YOU SPEND ON INSTAGRAM. FACEBOOK FOR BUSINESS. GET IN THERE AND LEARN IT. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ROCK IT. YOU KNOW SOCIAL MEDIA. CRUSH IT.
- HUSTLE. AS GARY VEE SAYS , THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT WORD. WORK YOUR ASS OFF TO MAKE A PLAN, WORK A PLAN. WATCH GARY V’S “HUSTLE” VIDEO FROM YOU TUBE.
- NETWORK. LIKE A BITCH. MAKE A LIST OF 200 PEOPLE THAT YOU KNOW. START TALKING.
