I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me That…

Employers usually don’t care what you learned in college, only that you have a degree;

It’s going to take you at least twice as long than you thought to find a job;

Internships don’t mean as much if you don’t make the right connections;

It’s ok to pursue a career outside of what you majored in;

Being a professional is better than being a student;

A lot of things are going to be exciting to you the first year of your career;

The ‘real world’ is not that scary if you’re ready for it;

Not all bosses are intimidating and unapproachable;

You’re going to doubt yourself sometimes;

No matter the amount, getting a steady paycheck at your first job/career is really nice;

At times, you’re probably going to do work outside of your job description;

You have a lot more free time without homework and studying every day;

It will feel really good when you can support yourself;

You don’t know nearly as much as you think you do;

What do you wish someone would have told you?


One thought on “I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me That…

  1. I wish someone would have told that the time flies like crazy once you’re out of school and on your own. Also, always know what’s good for you and what makes you happy. Sometimes employers think you should take opportunities because they think it’s a good move up the ladder for you and/or it would be good for the company. If you don’t know what you’re looking for in a job or what makes you happy then you might not know what to do when an opportunity presents itself. Always know what you’re looking for and what makes you happy.

    For me, living in California on the Monterey Bay on a job for a company I love makes me happy. I don’t need or want a job with more statis, money or in a place where I don’t want to live to make me happy.
