About Post Grad Purpose

After graduating college, most people are looking for the same thing. No, not money. Well, ok, maybe. But there’s something else. A lot of recent college graduates are looking for their purpose. You want to do something great and amazing with your life, but what should that be? Maybe you have no idea. Or maybe you know exactly what you want, but aren’t sure how to get it.

Post Grad Purpose is for anyone who’s feeling a little lost or uncertain about life after college. It’s a daunting time for anyone, no matter where they’re at. Maybe you landed an amazing job right out of school and are living in the city of your dreams, or maybe you’ve submitted a million resumes and have heard nothing but crickets. Either way, it’s a time of change for everyone. And with change comes a lot of questions. Post Grad Purpose hopes to provide answers, advice, and some personal insight so recent grads can more easily, and happily, navigate this tricky time in their lives.

I started this blog because I know exactly what it’s like to graduate college and realize adult life isn’t all that easy. I’ve experienced the highs and lows of post grad life and understand that this is a difficult stage in life. I’ve come to realize, though, that the difficulties of post grad life aren’t always talked about or are downplayed, and that a lot of people need help and advice. I hopes to take what I’ve learned over the past couple of years and share it with others.
