So you have finally finished university and the world seems to be your oyster! So, what’s the next step? First of all congratulations to all graduates it is a great achievement and not a easy feat at all! I got a few friends to share their experiences and thoughts on life after school, to offer some perspective and encouragement to those in a state of confusion about their next steps and for those who are in eager anticipation of achieving this amazing accomplishment. Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing their replies.
History, University of Reading
1. What were your expectations for life after university?
I expected to get a job straight away and to have a fresh start. I also expected to settle back into my old area.
2. Were those expectations met?
3. What would be your advice for those in their final year looking forward to life after school?
4. What is one thing you wish you knew when you were in your final year in order to better prepare you for life after school?
Don’t compare yourself with others and focus on achieving your own goals. I wish I knew that you don’t need to sprint through life, everything will work out in God’s timing.
