Are You Prepared for How Odd the Real World Can Be?

I cant help but get excited each time I think that we only have seven

months to go for the big day, "Graduation Day". We all have one goals

right now, it is to finished college. There is always the question like,

"What will you do when you've graduated from college"?. The transition

into and out of college can be both exciting and scary. There will be new

challenges, oppurtunities, unwritten rules and embarssment around every

corner. Are we really prepared for life after our diploma? For job hunts and

ultimately, our first real job?

Iam a working student for almost four years, and based on my own

experience, the real world can be a very strange place because of people's

diverse personalities, agendas and work styles. For example, decisions

that ought to be made based on tangible information and logic are

sometimes based on office politics. And your success (or lack thereof) on

the job will depend as much on your people skills as your technical

abilities. So be ready to be judged on more than your job-related

accomplishments and to judge others on more than theirs.

I am confused too on what will be my next step after college. Of course I

want to pursue my carreer as a journalist, but on the other hand there are a

lot of options aside from being part of media. I can go abroad and earn

more money. What is holding me back is the idea that, I may not have the chance to practice my skills as a journalist in other country.

Some people says that people who leave for greener pasture doesn't care

about the country. Keep in mind that the main reasons to work abroad are

to meet new people, see a new country, understand another culture, learn

more about yourself, and come home with a sense of achievement. So

either you pursue your degree or go for other options,main thing is you

love what you're doing, because when you start learning how to like your

job, everything will be easier and simplier, one key to success is to know

what you really want.

For many, the postgraduate world can be stressful and exciting at the

same time. You can minimize your anxiety and maximize your ultimate

success by going in with your eyes open and your mind fully prepared for

the challenges. Always be persistent and don't get discouraged by

negative responses. Know what you really want, find a job that is worth keeping. Be open to new things and never stop learning.
