    Hi manpreetrockerji,

    Welcome to the forums and thank you for reaching out. Congratulations for graduating, it is a great accomplishment and you should be so proud of yourself. It is quite difficult sometimes to figure out what you want to do and where you want to work when you finish university, especially if you haven't had any work experience. I'm not sure if you have spoken already to a careers advisor at university, but that would be my first step. A careers advisor can provide you with options related to your degree and your circumstances. They can provide you with information about your resume and where to look for jobs as well as advice for interviews in the future. You can also start by thinking about organisations you want to work for and see if they align with your values. Sometimes some people prefer to put out resumes and see what comes their way, especially at the start. Attaining some form of experience in the field will help you figure out which company you want to work for and where you want to go. Also, if you do find a job or a career path that you don't like you can always change to something different later. Hope that helps.

    Hello manpreetrockerji Thanks for your post and welcome

    Congratulations for Graduating thats a huge achievement and you have graduated very young so i assume you went to uni straight from High school. These days there are alot of mature aged students who didnt know what they wanted to do and figured it out abit later.

    Have you spoken to a careers Counselling from your University? They will have lots of information on your options
    My Uni also provided us with a roadmap that showed different paths after graduating and we were able to look into these paths for more information

    I Hope this helps

    Hey,

    Welcome to the forums! Congrats on graduating! That is an amazing accomplishment, you should be so proud :)

    As Happy helper said, you can speak to a careers counsellor from your university. I remember struggling to find out what jobs I could work with my degree but the counsellor really gave me a lot of options. Unis also offer seminars with different job opportunities, maybe try and look for those.

    Please stay safe and i am here to chat if you need.

    Hello! Great effort on completing your degree that is fantastic. Is there a career path that you may enjoy in that field? The days of holding one job or working at one place has changed since the 21st century. Many people change their jobs or rolls throughout their lives. It can take a few jobs and years to find something you enjoy doing thats the most important part! My self i was unsure of i wanted to do after school. I took on a part time roll as a trainee for a family members buisness, which i had no background knowledge of. 12years later i have achieved many certificates/licenses and became a well regarded manager for a different company in the same field of work. It can become boring after so many years, but challanging yourself or expanding your skills will help you in the long run. Aquiring different skills with different jobs will also help find you are a most passionate about. Hope this helps
