So you’re due to graduate from your undergraduate program soon but not sure quite what to do. You could continue your career as an academic, or you could decide that it is time to start gaining some practical experience and join the workforce. Whichever you choose, future education is always possible. Presented below are some challenges you should be aware of, and resources to inform your search for potential future academic endeavours.
After spending anywhere from 3 to 5 years studying at the undergraduate level, the thought of transitioning into a world where our days are not spent travelling to and from classes or sitting in the library cramming for midterms, can range from daunting to exhilarating. As you enjoy your cherished final months of your final semester, you may be left wondering, “what’s next?”

“In most jobs, it takes anywhere from three to six months to feel like you know what you're doing, and in some especially complicated jobs, even longer. Don't panic if you still feel in over your head by your third week, or like you'll never fit into this new workplace culture.”

“A resume will seldom get you a job offer. A resume will often lose you a job offer.” - Robert Half
Your resume is your first opportunity to show a company that you are a perfect fit for the job, but it can be your last chance too. Common resume mistakes can lead to your elimination from the first round of application process of your dream job.
