Many rules that applied in college longer hold. Maintaining a balance in this new environment is t easy. Most importantly, young college graduates out in the workplace are seen as adults, and t cushioned as they were in college.
The authors are keenly aware that an important part of adulthood after graduation is being able to find pride and self-confidence as well as an understanding of self. With empathy, perspective, and a sense of humor, the authors of #AFTER COLLEGE tweet help young adults sail through this challenging period of their lives.
