    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!
