New graduates should remember that no matter what job you choose today, you would develop skills and create long-term options.
Do not worry about your first job
Graduates, take note: Few people start their working life in the right place, so do not stress about your first job when you leave college, chances are you will not predict your future career, income or career path.
Instead of looking for the perfect job, look for these three things:
- Opportunities to learn whatever job you take, you must acquire new skills and experience.
- Enough money you do not have to be a banker. Watering is perfectly respectable if it gives you the time and flexibility to do what matters.
- Possibilities to contribute everyone want to have a sense of purpose. Find a position that allows you to be a force for good. If you cannot find a job that fits perfectly, do volunteer work in your spare time in the meantime.

- Define your network in broader terms. You have more contacts than you think. Consider classmates, colleagues, old customers and acquaintances of the community. When you make a contact, ask to introduce yourself to others.
- Take conversations as learning opportunities. Discuss meetings as conversations, not interviews. Ask about more jobs.
