It's the Monday after graduation, the strains of Pomp and Circumstance have faded and the inspirational speeches, and happiness of commencement day have left you with a warm afterglow . Life after college has offically begun. For some new grads, graduate school, law school or medical school is in your immediate future. For others, post undergraduate education lies farther afield, with finding a job your more urgent goal.
No matter what your circumstances, as new grads you will be the recipient of much well-meaning advice. While it's important to "find and pursue your passion" as we say in career services, it also can be helpful to ponder some real world suggestions about life. Professor Jeff DeGraff, University of Michigan shares a few in The Graduation Speech I Didn't Give.
As for career advice or help with a job search, don't forget that as a Simmons alum you continue to have access to career coaching and resources at the CEC. Be sure to check out all the alumnae/i services and resources provided through the Career Education Center.
