The day of graduation has come and you're about to leave college. It's an exciting but equally terrifying time for us all. If you don't know what to do when leaving college then it's time to sit down and figure out what happens next. Here are some of our top ideas post-graduation:
Work and Save Money
After studying for so many years the last thing you want to do is anything. The simplest approach could be taking a year out to work and save money. The money will open up future options for you.
Pay off that debt
If you're stuck with debt get it out of the way now. You don't want to have it lurking behind you whenever you go to make a decision in the future.
If you've never had experience in your chosen career path you're going to need to make that happen. If you're gagging to work for a particular company then hound them for work experience. One foot in the door and all that jazz.
It's not for everyone but if you want to continue your studies and specialize in a particular area then a post-grad degree could be the thing for you.
If you're saving money from that part-time job or having managed to find full-time employment after college then consider going traveling on your own or with friends or your partner. It could be the right time to move away on a visa for a year or two. There is also charitable organizations you can do go and help abroad or you can travel for free by working on farms across Europe.

Find yourself and follow your passion
Once you leave college everything about your circumstances change. You might find yourself not living with friends, in a job you don't necessarily enjoy and wondering where everyone is gone all of a sudden. It's a time for you to rethink everything and to remember you only have yourself at the end of the day. Try not to rush into anything you might regret in 6 months.
Go forth and spread those wings!
