I just can't believe that I am already graduated from my undergraduate studies. I am a fresh graduate from my course. I am so happy and also sad. Happy because finally I can now work since and help my parents. Sad at the same time because I will miss my batch mates whom I have known for many years in my entire college life. Now I will face another challenge in my life. This is what we call job hunting. I am still in search. I'm taking my time. I hope I will land a job if soon. As of now I am enjoying my vacation. After this, I will proceed to finding a job. I don't want to end up unemployed. I hope God is with me. I am so happy to be back mylotting! :)

Congratulations! And at the same time, welcome to the adult life! Enjoy your vacation first. Take a break for maybe 2 weeks before you start your job hunting. Its a tedious, tiring process so enjoy as much as you can now :)

Thank you ayeeesha. Indeed, after my graduation I stayed in the house for a week and after that I tried to go to a job fair just for fun and also to see if companies will hire me. I will not just tell about it because I am shy. Anyway, I really want to extend my vacation but vacation for me means I will just stay home. It's really boring at home. I want to be productive so I decided to do something.

It doesn't matter whether you stay at home first. Atleast you'll be able to get some rest before your serious job hunting begins :)

I would like to be a little philosophical.Your student life has not ended.We remain students till our last breath,because even after leaving our college we keep learning from our experiences.And I feel,our real student life begins after leaving our colleges.It is then that we learn real lessons of life. However,please accept my congratulations.I wish you a resounding success in life.I can understand how much you would miss your classmates now on.But that's life,my friend.Here people come close to each other,become friends and then a day comes when they depart. All my best wishes.

I know the feeling my friend. But you will soon realize once you have a job already, that friends' gathering will be much more colorful and enjoyable once everyone will already have a job. You can start scouting for a job now. There are a lot of graduates now, so the job market will be deluged with applicants. So better be ahead of the others. And in between the job hunting , enjoy Mylot.

Thanks SIMPLYD. Searching for jobs is like a competition. There are a lot of job seekers in one particular job. You must get it first before others will grab it from you. I must be ready!

Hi Congratulations! and welcome to a stressful life of being an employee... It's good that you have that sense of direction, that you want to get a job soon to help your family.. but before that just enjoy for the moment your vacation because seriously working is not like heaven.. sometimes it's like a hell .. ( LOL ) just giving you the reality. But it's okey what really matters is that you want to earn to help your finances so it is natural to work hard...

you got it right!.. being an employee is not a bed of roses, all you have to do is work,work,work and get paid!.. I guess its really important to choose the right path you want to walk for the rest of your life or else you gonna stock in hell!.. =)

I wish the best of luck in finding work. I also know what it feels like finishing college since I just graduated with my second Master's degree and have not been able to find work myself. Just keep on trying hard and do the best you can.

Thank you flowerchilde. I am already in my 2nd week of training of my first job. I hope I will pass the certification next week because I badly need it. I will really be very happy if I pass. My mother would be very happy too. When I pass, for sure I will help my parents and give back.

Thank you. I hope someday I will land a job that is in accordance with the course that I took in college. Now, I am still on training. I want to improve my confidence because as what I have observed, I am not that confident enough.

It is okay my friend. We all experience different hardships in life. So long as you don't give, it will just eventuall that things will fall into places. Things will be better. I believe you. Being with my batchmates is the most memorable experience in my college life.

Congratulations! I hope you manage to find a job with your degree. It is quite difficult to find these days, unless you did volunteering or a co-op, and even then sometimes... That is the sad thing that education cannot guarantee a job in your field. Hopefully in a few years more jobs will open up and all graduates will be able to find something. Best of luck in your future endeavors, and I hope all goes well :)

I am not sure how I will feel when I eventually stop becoming a student in a couple of years time.Part of me is excited about getting a job and building a life for my self.Though I realise that it is going to be a massive change.Though the worst thing will not be seeing my friends from uni anywhere as much while I am at uni I see them everyday it will be a massive change.It feels weird when we just go home for our holidays I can't imagine how it will feel when this way of life comes to an end.

You are right. There are a lot of changes that will happen to our life when we tend to make series of decisions. Change is constant. It is normal to our life. Let's embrace change and be open to the many adventures that awaits to us.

Congratulations on your graduation! Finally, another chapter of your life is close, and I am sure that your parents are so proud of you. Now, you can sit back, relax and rest. No more tests, quizzes, papers and projects to turn in. BUt after a while, you have to face the real world out there and try to join the working force. Good luck!

Real world.. Here I am facing the real world which I am adjusting. It's hard. I don't know will I ever survive or not. Big thanks to the people who are always there for me. Without them, I don't know if I will survive or not.

Its a good thing for you graduating. As for me, I am still quite worried on my grade on some of my subject. I do not want to shift or stay in my course for another year. I hope I can make it through!

I hope and pray that you will surely pass that subject my friend. I have been through that part. Just try your very best and show to your teacher that you've improved. Thank you and congratulations in advance. Good luck! Believe in yourself that you can do it.

You are so correct. I miss my friends in college already. I don't see them as often. Learning doesn't stop there. Everyday I am learning something and I believe this learning will make a big impact in my future. It is very important for me to be able to pass all these trials because I want to prove something not just to myself but for others.

Congratulations! Feel the same when I graduated in college. Feeling so happy but same time so sad. Heading to job hunting is the worse part I guess lol, some of the company need experience, so you will have to train in some company without pay or less pay just to get experience somehow. Well goodluck and happy mylotting! :) xx

I really had difficult time after graduation because I don't know yet what should I do although I had plans already. It turns out that I went from a lot of job agencies and companies where they have vacancies. Indeed, it isn't that easy.

i was like you back then when I graduated collage. I am happy because I surpass all the stressful stuff of homeworks, drawings, exam, report, etc. but then I'm a little bit sad & nervous as well for I had to face the real world of earning money, budget, paying billse etc. :) well you have to enjoy your vacation and also take a lot of sleep cause you might be missing it when you got a work.. enjoy life =)

Congrats to you! i hope you find work that is suits for the course that you've taken up during your college days, now a days it is really awkward to find a job that you like. For now, enjoy the day and ready yourself to face life's battle.
