Graduates throw their hats in the air

Leaving school is both an exhilarating and terrifying experience and it may be hard to know who to find a job after leaving school.

Often, you are relieved to be free of the rigid pattern of study and breathe a sigh of relief that the professors in your life are no longer a part of your life. You are now free to pursue your own interests and begin your adult life.

Before you make any decisions for yourself, consider your future and where you want to be in at least ten years. This can help you put your career into perspective and get you started on the right track.

But don’t be concerned if you’ve never excelled in school and are just looking for a job to earn money. You must pick what best matches your personality and requirements.

If you are passionate about learning

You may have already decided that you enjoy learning and are thinking about furthering your education. Many college courses are based on your exam scores, so check with your preferred college to see what grades are required. If your scores are not high enough to meet the admission requirements, you may choose to repeat the examinations and enroll in college later, or you may like to look into other courses that accept your existing marks.

If you want to earn money and keep learning

Joining the Armed Forces, such as the Army or Navy, is an option. You can also join the police or fire departments. Consider pursuing an apprenticeship in plumbing, carpentry, gardening, or even working as a professional cook if you love working with your hands. Apprenticeships frequently offer a wage. Here you learn the trade while you work, and you may be required to attend college once or twice a week.

If all you desire is a job

Registering as unemployed will help in receiving unemployment or jobseekers allowance. Find firms where you want to work and contact their human resources departments with a direct application and connect with various high-street recruiting agencies in your area. 

You might also look into unique occupations, such as working on a cruise ship or starting your own business.
