    I graduated 6 years ago too!! INSANE.

    I love & appreciate this post. It’s SO true that looking back you realize the things you thought were significant at the time are actually not that big of a deal long-term. I was so stressed to find a job & get started on my career, where looking back I wish I had taken some time off & traveled.

    Keep in mind – in most cases, people never end up in a career related to their major…so don’t be too hard on yourself!

    I had my job lined up even before I took my first exam in my final year – crazy. I couldn’t believe my luck. Still I do think I would have done better at uni if I didn’t feel that relaxed at the very end :)

    The biggest advice I have is don’t be afraid to take time to find the right job. After college, I didn’t have a job offer that I liked, so I waitressed for 4 months. I have plenty of friends that went right into a job right after college and ended up changing after one year. I spent four months making (great!) money and found a company and position I love. Everyone moves at their own pace and there’s no jobs that are *beneath you*. Enjoy this time!

    I especially love “use this time to learn”. Try to absorb everything you can; learn all you can – enjoy your 20’s!

    I deeply appreciate this post. I graduated in December and have been looking for a job since the beginning of the year. It’s only March and I’ve been in and out of depressed moods mainly due to my lack of self worth for not having found a job yet. It feels good to find anyone else tell me I’m being too hard on myself. I’m going to just chill and enjoy this break before I do find the job I’m right for.
