Congratulations, College Graduate! Now What? 3 Tips to Help You Move Into the Real World!

So you or someone you know is graduating from college. That's no small accomplishment. A congratulations is certainly in order. You definitely deserve some downtime to enjoy what could be your last "free" summer. Transitioning into the workforce is not always easy. Here are some tips on how to "move" into a smoother transition.

  • Practice making appropriate eye contact. This is super important for good communication in the workplace. It also shows you respect yourself and others as well as have good listening skills.
  • Boost your confidence by taking on a power pose. Practice feeling confident in your body and you will exude confidence in the workplace.
  • Create a sleep schedule to set your internal clock. Getting adequate sleep is key to avoiding burnout.

Way to go, graduate!

Love these tips, Erica Hornthal . My son graduated from college last year, and he's still adjusting to the "real" world. It's something we often overlook. It's a big adjustment!
