10 Things To Do After Graduation

Posted on

I am slow at getting around to things in my personal life. I graduated well over 6 months ago and there is a lot of after graduation things I haven’t gotten around to yet.

This week I had some time off and I finally sat down and did these 10 things.

10 Things To Do After Graduation.

  1. Sell any textbooks you can. Those books are expensive so if you can get something back for them do it as soon as you can.
  2. Throw out the remaining text books. If you can’t sell them no one needs them, donate them to charity just in case.
  3. Frame your certificate. Don’t let it hang around in its plastic pocket. Put it in a frame it’s the most expensive piece of paper you own.
  4. Work out a payment plan for you student loans. Don’t wait until tax time comes or they come knocking on your door. Pay them back as soon as you can.
  5. Buy a car that isn’t a bomb. Chances are you’re still driving your very first car that you saved as much as you could for and its a piece of junk. Get a car that will get you from A to Z with a stop at E, J and N in the middle.
  6. Learn how to cook 2 healthy meals. It is surprising how much time you no longer have and how awful you feel after eating macca’s for every meal for a whole week.
  7. Join LinkedIn. I hope you have already done this by now however if you have put this off get on and start recommending people you know for their skills.
  8. Set up job notifications on job hunting websites so that when a new job is posted in the field your qualified for comes up you’re onto it straight away. Make sure they are also jobs that interest you, nothing is worse than a job you hate.
  9. Upgrade your clothes. Ripped jeans and threadbare tee’s are all good at uni but in the workplace it just looks sloppy and unprofessional.
  10. Make a plan to look after you. If you’re jumping into the workforce or still looking life can get draining. Put in place a plan to look after you mentally and physically. You won’t regret it.

All of these have come from my own learnings after I graduated. Let me know if you have learnt anything from your graduation below!
