Congratulations to all new college graduates!
You did it – outstanding! Laissez les bon temps roulez. Break into song ‘School’s out for summer…. School’s out for-ever’.
What to do next? Let me offer a few words of wisdom.
Thank all the little people. For sure thank anyone who helped pay the bills but include anyone who helped get you where you are today. After all, no man is an island. It takes a village. You get the idea.
Get a job. In case you missed the memo, it’s time. Don’t get hung up on finding the perfect job. Over the course of your lifetime there will be plenty of opportunities for the perfect job. There is even a good chance that your perfect job hasn’t been invented yet. Go into your job hunt well-armed with an open mind. You might land a job doing something you had never before considered and live happily ever after. I am serious!
If you’re broke, you have our permission to return to the mother ship to live for a while to get your footing. No worries. But! Make sure you are seriously, diligently looking for gainful work and make sure to help out around the house. Do the dishes and cook, mow the lawn, you know the drill.
Congratulations! Now get out there and start changing the world. It’s your time.
