Congratulations on your graduation and welcome to the real world. Remember, some lecturers told you back then that after graduation, you would enter the real world. Though their advice could have made you afraid and confused about what the future holds but you have to take a deep breath and prioritize your life.
You can reminisce on the times spent on campus, the good and bad times, the times you missed tests, the night tutorials, the strict attendance during lectures, the times lecturers told you that the highest grade in that course is "C", your social life and spiritual life on campus also. It is good to reflect on those times but the best thing to do is to move on. As a fresh graduate, understand that there are other people like you - you have to buckle up in order to move from dependence to independence.
Are you ready for the job market? Are you ready to break out and grab opportunities? Relax and follow these tips.
