As graduation approaches, it's time for new graduates around the world to answer that looming question...what now?
Over on the US News & World Report career blog, I posted my career advice for those leaving school and jumping into the next stage of their lives. In a nutshell, the advice is this:
Don’t worry about making the “right choice” as you launch your career. Because the odds are good you’re not going to. Instead, find a path that seems appealing and use the next five years as research and development (R&D) for your career. Use that time to get a deeper understanding of what energizes and inspires you, and use that insight to make your decisions moving forward.
More details on how to approach that in the post.
To all of you who are making a fresh start this spring (both new graduates and career changers), good luck!
