The Interim Period After Graduation: How Your Spare Time Can Actually Benefit You


Venturing out on my own after graduating from college seemed like a daunting task. The excitement of graduation day has faded, and the reality of a cutthroat work force and the obligation of monthly expenses have set in. The scariest part of this time is that I constantly worry about whether I will be able to land a full-time job in my field.

Despite all of these pressures, this agonizing interim period can actually provide some benefits, as I have recently learned. The transition period into my newfound adulthood has given me time to take care of certain tasks that I would not have been able to complete if I was employed full-time.
