Tip Tuesday: Grads, bring down your ego

In this day and age, it’s usually the norm to have either a university degree or college diploma. Because of this, many recent grads in the past years feel entitled to secure a job in their field right after or a few months after graduation. And when they aren’t able to, they blame the poor job market and the economy and start feeling unmotivated with their job search and life in general.

If you’re guilty of that, bring your ego down a bit! If you look at the very successful people, they all started from the bottom and most hopped from random job to random job. Stepping it down a notch and getting any job after graduation while looking for the right job will keep you from feeling negative and blaming the economy. You’ll also build character, learn to budget, meet new people (possibly connections to another job closer to your filed) and most importantly, real life work experience.
