17 Struggles You’ll Recognise If You Don’t Know What You Want To Do After Uni
Graduating is hard enough on its own, never mind graduating with no idea what to do next.
1. Having to just smile and nod while everyone else is making plans for the future.
2. Because you honestly don’t even know where to begin.
3. Regretting not seeing this as a bigger issue a bit sooner.
You just thought the answer would’ve come to you by now.
4. And struggling not to go into absolute panic mode at any given moment.
5. Wishing people would stop asking you what you’re doing next.
My answer hasn’t changed from the last time you asked me.
6. And offering well-intentioned but relatively useless advice.
“Just do what you want to do.” But I don’t know what that is 🙃
7. The harder you try to work out what you want to do, the less you seem to know.
Is winning the lottery a career?
8. And you feel under a huge amount of pressure to just decide already.
9. You can’t even consider the prospect of travelling without worrying you’re only delaying having to make a decision.
10. Just knowing that some people probably think you did the wrong degree.
Which is fine.
11. Or that you shouldn’t have done a degree in the first place.
12. And then starting to believe it yourself.
13. Whenever you do try searching for jobs, none of them really stand out.
Mostly because you don’t know what it is you’re looking for.
14. Or if one does, you feel horrifically under-qualified for it.
15. Not understanding how everyone else makes it look so easy.
What is it I’ve done wrong? 🤔
16. Genuinely worrying you’ll never know what it is you want to do.
17. And what will become of you if that’s the case.
