Determining a career path and getting that first job after college can be a pretty lonely experience. Life after college is a seismic-shift, and everyone’s path is at least a little windy. Just knowing where and how to get started with your career is a challenge in itself.
Some new grads will move to new cities to pursue jobs in competitive fields. Some will take unfulfilling jobs in the short-term to pay the bills. Some will grapple with what to do with an art history or psychology major. Some will move back in with mom and dad for a bit or take gap-year and explore the world while trying to figure out what to do next. Whatever someone decides to do after college, it’s a special mix of exhilaration, newness, fear, fun, uncertainty and sometimes loneliness.
But starting out professionally doesn’t have to be lonely. The antidote to career loneliness is other professionals who have been in your shoes. Think about it: there’s another professional out there somewhere who has done the thing that you want to do in your career. There is someone who has been faced with the same challenge and understands what you’re going through. They can help you with your situation, and in doing so, make your career journey a little less lonely. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could meet and talk to that person?
