Now that you have graduated, what next?

With most students graduating in the last quarter of the year, the nagging question at the back of your mind is; will I get a job? Most of the graduates do not have a job or internship lined up after graduation. So if you are one of the hundreds of graduates that have just left campus, you are not alone. However, there are many options out there you can pursue. Here are just five that you can start with.

  1. Volunteer

This is an awesome way to give back to society as well as feel up your time with something meaningful. The chance to volunteer will also give you the opportunity to reflect on what you really want in life. Volunteering for a few months before diving into the corporate world is a great way to spend your time.

  1. Go on an adventure

They say travelling broadens the mind. After 4 years in college, taking a break and learning from a different culture is an awesome way to broaden your horizons, as well as opening up a world of infinite possibilities. Maybe the pressure is for you to start earning as soon as possible and your folks may not be too willing to finance your adventure. But it doesn’t need to be outside the country. Just going to live in another country for a few weeks may open your eyes to the opportunities there

  1. Pursue your passions

After 16 years of formal education, you had little or no time for your passions. Writing, art, music, acting and even dancing may have been down the list of priorities but now that you have graduated you can pursue our passions. If you perfect your skill and passion, someone may actually be willing to pay for your talent and you may never need to look for a job anywhere.

  1. Teach English outside the country

Kenyan students have a much better command of the English language compared to other African states. As a graduate of the Kenyan education system, you are better equipped to teach English in neighboring countries. When teaching abroad, you get paid to teach while you experience a different culture and way of life. There are many opportunities; however it is important to be well prepared before jumping into any teaching opportunities abroad.

  1. Take a few courses

Probably going back to class after the graduation party is not your ideal end-game. But if you are to be marketable in the corporate world, you need to sharpen your skills. Enrolling in professional courses will beef up your CV and give you an edge over competitors. Education has no end.
