The common expectation of a student is to land his/her dream job right after graduation, however, in the real world, things don’t always turn out this way. These days, competition to enter the workforce has become fiercer and companies are more interested in experience years than academic ones. Additionally, without good ‘connections’ in certain workplaces, the process of hiring can be tough.

Your graduation day was so exciting and beautiful; you envisioned your dream career and how bright the future was going to be. Now, it’s been months even close to a year since you graduated and nothing significant has happened in your life. In the meantime on social media, your friends are posting pictures and comments on how well life has treated them since graduation: They have been traveling abroad, secured their dream careers, gotten married, or rented their own place. You become anxious, envious, and embarrassed looking at your own state because you have nothing to show for it. I’m here to tell you that if you are doing all your best and walking blamelessly before God, then there is no cause for alarm; God is conforming you to the image of His Son and will meet your needs in His perfect time.

Job Hunting? Don’t Get Overwhelmed!

SSU Special Edition: Life After Graduation

You just graduated from college or grad school and we all know what the next step is: Job hunting! A man once said that looking for a job is like a full-time job. The process is so time-consuming that you’ll think you’re being paid for researching, filling out applications, going to interviews, and all. Plus, family and friends can become a nuisance if they’re constantly harassing you with the same questions: “Have you got a job yet?”, “Have you thought about applying there?”, “Don’t you think you’re being too picky?” Hence, in a blink of an eye, the journey to your dream job can turn sour and overwhelming leading to a frustrating spiritual life. We shouldn’t let this season take control over us but instead take control over it by finding rest in the Lord.

Separation with Friends

Separation with Friends

SSU Special Edition: Life After Graduation

Graduation, graduation, graduation! I love graduation, I love to celebrate the achievements after long semesters of hard work. It’s a great feeling to know that IT IS OVER!!! No more homework, no more group projects, no more timetables; we’re done with school. However, we tend to forget about the reality waiting for us post-graduation time, especially when it comes to friendships. Back in school, we had a routine with our friends: Similar class time slots, weekend get-togethers, same exercise time, etc. Now after graduation, things begin to change making it more difficult to coordinate our plans: Conflicting work schedules and different budgets, social circles, and locations. Consequently, we either find ourselves alone or in dying need of that support group. So what to do? How do we handle such situations?
