Thinking about life after college scares me. It’s scary because there are too many opportunities for a person to apply for and you wouldn’t know which one to choose from. Some proactive steps I am taking to ensure I am making a smooth transition into life after college are to self-reflect and be honest with myself by asking thoughtful questions, examine my strengths and weaknesses, develop a mindset that looks to solve problems instead of dwelling on them, and most importantly, asking for feedback to improve on myself.
