As I begin my last year in college, I have been thinking more about my fate post-grad. Most of the people I know who have graduated, from VCU in particular, have had tremendous difficulty finding a career after they’ve graduated.
The time between pre-graduation jitters and post-graduation blues is brief. Unless you have already been guaranteed a job in your field, the idea of leaving college is intimidating for most of us.
I have paid for every internship credit hour I have taken, outside of the financial cost of the credit hours: I bought office clothes, transportation, parking, printing materials for work when necessary. All of which are minor, but necessary incurred costs that I didn’t mind paying because it was part of the internship experience, necessary components and experiences in preparing for office work, in my case.
