I never once took a moment to think about what I wanted to do with my time. As you might guess, once graduation rolled around, I ended up in the same, unhealthy pattern — jumping from job to job, assuming that one day, I would finally find the peace of mind I was so desperately searching for during my college days.
This peace of mind wasn’t achieved until I started putting my needs and goals first, which was not an easy thing to do all on my own. The silver lining: I can now dedicate my time to helping other lost souls find their footing and discover their own unique definition of happiness — because it is only once we uncover these truths that we can truly start living our purpose.
Between picking classes, deciding on a major and exploring potential internship options, it can be overwhelming to know which decisions are going to benefit you the most in the long-run. A lot can happen between your freshman and junior year, as well as between your junior year and senior year. I’ve navigated this seemingly endless pit of confusion myself, and the truth is, it does get easier (eventually). However, it can be difficult to gain clarity when so many things are up in the air.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually feel good about the next few years of your life? When you work with me, I’ll be your dedicated advocate and partner, helping you navigate any challenges and questions that come up with confidence so you leave college with a clear idea of who you are and what you want out of life.
You’re so close to the finish line, and then all of a sudden, you realize you have no idea where you’re going or what you’re doing! Guess what? You’re not alone! When I was about to graduate college, I had no job lined up. This was a huge deal for me as I had always envisioned myself leaving college with an impressive full-time job. In the end, I got another internship a few weeks later that taught me everything I needed to be a competitive job candidate. You may also have a similar vision in your mind of what you want your life to look like once you’re no longer a college student. However, as we all know, nothing ever goes exactly as planned.
My job is to help you remain flexible and open to the opportunities available to you, as well as supportive of whatever direction you choose to go in after college. Maybe you want to backpack across Europe, or maybe you want to start your own business. Whatever dreams you have, I’ll be here to support you every step of the way so that instead of dreading graduation, you can look forward to the next chapter of your life.
The period after graduation is no doubt overwhelming. In addition to deciding where to live, you’re also expected to land a full-time job. And the job hunting process is no walk in the park! Maybe you need guidance on how to structure your resume, or, maybe you’re looking for some encouragement as you prepare for your first interview. If you already have a full-time job, your thoughts may be focused on getting a promotion, switching positions or even branching off and forming your own company. As you can tell, there can be quite a lot on your mind after graduation!
I’ve been in your shoes many times, and I wholeheartedly believe that the best is yet to come! However, it can be hard to “keep the faith” when you no longer have school as your security blanket. Now, you need to figure out what life after college looks like. But first, you must define what’s most important to you. And I’m here to help you do exactly just that!
Guess what? You’re not alone! Even after I got my “dream” job, I felt like there was still something missing, although I had no idea what. Years later, I am able to reflect on this period of my life with gratitude, because without these emotions, I would have never ended up where I am today. I truly believe anything is possible with the right mindset because I have experienced it in my own life. Everything in your reality was caused by your thoughts. Just imagine what could happen if those thoughts were driven by ambitious — and positive — intentions!
You deserve to explore your passions and interests. Not everything you do is going to be the “traditional” approach, and that’s okay. College is just the beginning of a life-long learning experience that offers numerous opportunities to grow, evolve and achieve your wildest dreams. Let’s work together to make sure every step you take now gets you closer to where you want to be.
