did you have any idea what you wanted to do? .. or did you make sure you got "placed" during your last semester so you knew you had a job waiting for you..? http://wtaworld.com/images/smilies/ummm.gif

-also were you satisfied with the job you did get..?

I'll graduate with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice in May - and am completely lost atm .. I planned on going to grad school straight out of graduation.. or taking off a semester before going back - but the more i think i about it .. the less i think itll happen (due to financial reasons).

I'm gonna turn 20 next week - thus I'll be graduating at a very young age and so am just completely second guessing things..

Well. I graduated in law, but wasn't sure exactly what job I wanted. I had worked as an intern in the DA's office, but it is hard getting through there for a real job as you require experience. I ended up working as a lawyer for asylum-seekers and refugees. It is a hard job, but very gratifying. Half a year ago I went to work for a municipality, where I am now employed as a legal consultant, dealing with legal problems in the area of social security. I still provide some advice to the organisation I used to work for in my spare time as well. My career however has never been planned. I always took advantage of opportunities given to me. I looked in a wide range of possible directions. I always like doing new things to develop myself further.

Looking back, I landed allright, but perhaps it's wise to plan a little, since it will be easier to find a job that way. Good luck! :wavey:

I know how you feel. I was garduating with a degree on Computering Sotfware Engineering a few years ago but I ended up working as Accounts Assistant. :rolleyes: It's boring.

I'm not really looking forward to graduating, I dont think I'll get a job. I usually have problems even getting jobs now that dont require a lot of skills, so i wont be able to get a graduate position. I'd like to get a job in the legal field but apparently its hard to get a articles at a firm, and i'm not one of the better students, so there goes my chances. I dont know what i want to do if i dont get anyting in law.

i took year off after i graduated to "find myself" and i am glad i did. i know what i want and i know what will make me happy, i dont have to spend the next 15 years of my life in something that makes me unhappy. yes i wont be as well off as others who go in to finance or what have you, but as a teacher i can be happy at my job.

Well, I knew I wanted to do something financial, I went for insurance, and it worked out fine... I love my job...I'd just want more money, but hey , everyone has that problem...
