So, there is no going around the fact that senior year of college is definitely the most stressful one. On top of all the work you already have to do for your classes, you are also stuck with the overwhelming feeling that if you don’t get a job you have failed as being a college student. You try to come up with excuses at family parties as to what you will be doing after graduation, and even with your friends you will tend to set too high of aspirations for yourself.
Not only are you trying to keep up with your last semester of school work, but you are also trying to keep up with the social life you have known for the past four years.
After getting a job, your spirits completely change. Your days start to feel a little less stressful, and honestly if you miss a homework assignment it is no longer the end of the world. Instead of cringing every time the question, “what are your plans for after graduation?” is asked, you now look forward to the question. Today I got the question “what is new with you?” and it had never felt so good to be able to tell someone the most crucial thing that has happened in my life.
To all incoming seniors, I honestly suggest starting to look for jobs earlier rather than later. With the last semester of college, no one wants to sit inside and job search. The earlier, the better. Now I get to spend all my free time socializing, instead of spending hours on indeed.com.
