Hi, I am retired person. I got the job immediately after my graduation. My son wanted to make a career in IT engineering. He has done it successfully. He also get the job in campus interview before his graduation. Now he is doing his job in well known IT company. We should give importance to both career and money.

The best thing, I think, that you can do after college is to look for a job to gain experience. It is much better to be exposed with the outside world then time will come when you will realize on which way you should go. If you have enough money to start your own business, then well and good. But, you need to do some researching about the business that you are interested in. When you have established your career, money will flow easily to you. Good luck!

I think for me, i look first for a job in company in order to save more money to invest to run my own business in the future. Finding a job is the first step to enhance my career and at the same work for money. Because, I believe running a business first is, that I need a very big amount of money to spend on putting up a business and there is a 50-50 chance that I may receive ROI or return of investment.

Well, if you have a degree, then you should be able to get a career with that degree, and if you have a career, then the money will come once you start working. I have a Bachelor of the Arts Degree in English Literature and Language, and this summer I have been Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) to Chinese students. I am also going to have a tutoring job as of October 2012 teaching English to Spanish speaking students or to students who don't know English. I will be earning a decent living. Once you have your education, and you begin doing what you love, then the money will come.

This would be a simple question for me. First i will choose to find a job in a company. Because enven if i want to start my business, i need to earn some money and accumulate some experience. What's more,from the job i do, i can get some information of the market and come to know some people, whici are all very impotrant. My goal for working is to earn some money, meanwhile i can realize my value, learn something useful and i can get the promotion after my hard working.

When I graduated to my first course I decided to work first and save for the business that I want to start. Good thing that when I was working I got promoted and help me to save enough to start my own business but even though have a small business I continue working and just balance my time between my job and business. It is better to have a permanent job when you have a business because you can have extra income to support personal needs and can save more.

hi amandaputri, i'm currently an undergraduate and would graduate next spring. for now, i still have no concrete plans as to waht to do after graduation. my parents hope that i can continue my studies. i too hope that i can continue wtih master. However, i'm not too sure about what specialization i would enroll in. I think it is necessary for me to do lots of research in the coming few months. How about you? what is your plan after graduating?

My course of study is Chartered Accountancy. After I clear, there are several opportunities in front of me. I can take up a job or practice on my own as an auditor or tax consultant. I think I'll seek for a job. Work for a couple of years to gain experience and then start my own private practice. Also, I'm running a small business of my own. Which will surely turn somewhat bigger by then. I'll look forward to its growth as well.
