I founded grad life crisis to let graduates know it's okay to be confused, intimidated and overwhelmed by life at the end of formal education.
Moving back home after three years of living with like minded people your age is a drastic change. Anyone who's gone to university can remember what this time is like.
I hope to supply space for debate, tools for personal growth and most importantly support and encouragement to anyone with self-doubt.
You're young, intelligent and skilled. You're the future and you have lots to offer.
To me, grown-up life is about finding your passion and nurturing your disposition. This could involve doing what you love alongside your day job, or it can mean immersing yourself in a career path for you. Grad life crisis promotes more than one route to personal success and multiple voices to go along with it. Sharing your story can comfort, inspire or inform another - and this is at the heart of grad life crisis' project.
Remember, although it's hard to think far into the future, you'll be working until you're 70 or over. So do the things you love and get paid for doing them.
We all process reward in different ways. Some value money, others priortise culture or ethical motivations, while there are others who opt for a sensible and long-term route - but this enterprise is about knowing your worth and not under selling yourself.
Case studies, opinions and advice - to help you navigate the tough world that is grad life.
