What happens after post secondary?

As a student recruiter, I meet a lot of students eager to get a job.  This is because they want to start their career to pay off debt and enjoy the life of a professional.   However, after graduating from post secondary schools, many students start to realize it is not what they signed up for.

It can get lonely trying to climb that ladder especially as you’re competing with your sorority brothers and sisters.

There was an interesting  article about recent graduates who started working, “how-to-beat-the-post-graduation-blues” (Globe and Mail, October 6, 2014)

I found this interesting because I do student hiring.  When students are hired, they are excited to get a job, however, as I follow up with them, not surprising, they find it lonely and different from their school lifestyle.
