Our career coach gives some insight into the tricky shift from university or school into the world of adult work.
I’m a recent graduate and I’m one month into a 12 month internship in the health and fitness sector, but it’s really not working for me. I’m not enjoying the unsociable hours or lack of structure. I enjoy business and I’m looking to get into the real estate industry in central London, but I don’t have any experience. Brad.
The transition from education to work is not easy.
You may find you lack the sense of purpose that you enjoyed at university and you might have to take a job to pay the bills, rather than one that starts you off on your intended career path.
Take some small comfort from knowing that none of this is unusual!
If you speak with other recent graduates, many of them will be having similar experiences and you can provide each other with mutual support.
