Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief......

I don't know about the rest of you, but here lately I have heard a lot of "Pomp and Circumstance." Everywhere parents and graduates are taking a deep relieved breath. But then reality sets in. What's next? Basic training? Graduate school? Hitting the job market right away?

Whatever you decide, don't let the uncertainty of your next step keep you from taking that leap of faith. Looking over the LinkedIn article, If I Were 22: 80+ Influencers Share Lessons from Their Youth, I found a lot of things that made sense for anyone entering a new phase of life.

There are different schools of thought—the old ‘find your passion’ spiel as well as a timely warning from Sallie Krawcheck, “… you'll have to kiss a lot of frogs before finding the right job. Accept that nothing you plan for ever quite turns out as expected and that you yourself will change.”

Whatever amphibians you might be approaching, just know that your first job is not going to be your last. Glean all that you can from whatever path you are on. As you do, you will build a resume that most employers will review more than once. Just keep said resume updated!!
