Graduating from university is one of the biggest milestones that you’ll experience in your life, and the reason for that is because you’re finally becoming an adult. Or something like that. However, that also means that you’re going into a world of entirely different experiences, and you’ve probably already heard some rumours about how hard this adulting thing is. These are some things you can do to prepare for graduation.
Start Looking For Scholarship Opportunities
If you’ve dreamed of studying abroad, after you graduate is one of the best times to do that. You can find a scholarship to study at a university abroad after your graduation. If that’s something that you’re interested in doing then first of all you need to know where to look to find scholarship opportunities. Here are some websites that are really good at that:
The essay is one of the most important parts of a scholarship application. Here’s a resource that should help make it easier for you to write a good one.
Get Your Job Hunting Documents Ready
Even before you’re out of school, it’s a good idea to start working on your CV, getting recommendations letters and other documents to help you land your first job. If you’ve never written a CV, here’s an article that should help you get to the right start.
It’s also a good idea to get recommendations from some of your lecturers in school and from places that you’ve interned in the past.
Work On Your Online Profile
You would be surprised how much having a good online profile helps in the job search. You get to connect with more experienced people who can help you in your personal and career growth. You can do this on most social media but for professional networking, LinkedIn is the standard for a reason.
Talk To People And Learn As Much As You Can
Finally, a lot of the things that you’ll have to deal with after school there is no way you can prepare for unless you have some inside knowledge. During the period around your graduation, you should talk to people who have been through this stage as much as you can. Talk to seniors from school, see if they have any hacks or even warnings to share.
