Hi Hoshmand!

You asked a very important question! The transition process may be different for various people in various situations; therefore, I am presenting several different viewpoints that may help: http://careernetwork.msu.edu/jobs-internships/making-the-transition-to-work.html https://www.daveramsey.com/blog/after-college-then-what https://www.livecareer.com/quintessential/college-to-career

One of the best things that you can do is to get to know yourself, so that you can best match your personality, interests, and aptitutes with an appropriate career area. Here is a good way to start that process: https://www.themuse.com/advice/14-free-personality-tests-thatll-help-you-figure-yourself-out

Networking is a way that about 80% of people find their jobs. Here are some good tips: ttp://www.wikihow.com/Network https://www.themuse.com/advice/nonawkward-ways-to-start-and-end-networking-conversations https://www.themuse.com/advice/4-questions-to-ask-your-network-besides-can-you-get-me-a-job?ref=carousel-slide-1 https://www.themuse.com/advice/the-job-search-strategy-thatll-make-you-15-times-more-likely-to-be-hired

A good next step is to get more information about those interest areas identified in the above exercises and learning how one might possibly prepare for them with the possibility of experiencing fulfillment and satisfaction. Selecting a career area is like buying a pair of shoes. They may look great, but you need to try them on and walk in them for a while to determine the proper level of comfort and fit. The most frustrating times I spent when I was doing college recruiting were the times when a graduate, once on the job, determined that he/she did not like the job for which he/she had studied, as he/she did not take the time or effort to do appropriate "shoe shopping" and pay attention to their feelings of "comfort or discomfort". Here are some good ways to get some great information and career exposure: - talk to your school counselor about participating in coop, intern, shadowing, and volunteer programs that will allow you to see what people do, how they got there, what advice they have, and how you feel about it - talk to the head of alumni relations at your school to arrange to talk to graduates working in your area of interest to learn more from them - as many people get their start at a community college, talk to the head of alumni relations at your local community college to arrange to talk to graduates in your area of interest to see what they are doing and see how they got there - talk to the head of alumni relations of any training program or facility related to your areas of interest to get valuable information from graduates and create valuable relationships.

Let me know if and how this helps. Best of luck!

Hello, this is a good question and it differs from a person to another. It all depenfs on what you are looking for. Some graduates directly look for jobs related to their fields od study. Others look for fellowships to acquire some practical knowledge because most university courses offet theorical knowledge. Some people look for volunteering opportunities to gain a larger spectrum of social relations or to know more about their societies and offer help, that in turn help them build themselves. So you should ask yourself what you see yourself doing after university and decide which route to take. Good luck.
