Leaving college can be a time of uncertainty, challenge, and excitement. How do you build skills and experiences that will benefit you in the future, when you are on the lowest rung of the professional ladder, or in a job that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere? How do you balance creating a life with professional demands when your time is not your own? How do you ensure you are practicing self-care – physically, mentally, financially, and emotionally – when you don’t know what the resources are to do that? How do you build community and find friends? How do you build your network and find mentors? And, how do you take ownership for what comes next?
To better support you in the college to life-after-college transition, we have created Five For Your First Five© – the five areas to master during your first five years after college. Get started by exploring the five areas below, buy the book, join a group, and attend a bootcamp or workshop. Start to own your career and life after college, today!
