It has now been a year since I officially graduated from University – although to be honest, it feels like a lifetime ago that I was a student! But I feel like I have a lot of wisdom to share to all the uni leavers out there, so today I’m going to be giving my best advice for recent graduates.
For me, leaving uni felt amazing at the time. My degree was 5 years long, which is such a long time to be doing the same thing, so I was really ready to move onto something else. However, I’ll be honest and say that things didn’t go 100% smoothly and I found the transition from student life to working life quite difficult.
As a bit of context – I also moved city immediately after graduating, which was also a big transition. But regardless, I think it’s important to remember that moving on from the frivolity of student life to the hard reality of the working world is never going to be easy!
