Don't Settle For Just Any Job As a Post Grad

Haven't your parents always taught you to follow your dreams? Go for the job you'll absolutely love? Reach your full potential? They've told you this in elementary school while you were just starting to learn all the way up until high school where you started to figure out what you'd like to do and while you pick out colleges. Now you've just graduated from college. Congrats on this huge achievement! Unfortunately the job market is incredibly tough right now and you're faced with a choice. Find any old job or take your parent's advice and really go for your dream job.

The answer isn't always easy. Perhaps you're not able to live at home and need a job to support yourself and pay for rent and bills. Everyone has a different situation and different monetary needs. But I would give the same advice to everyone: follow your dreams and go for a job you'll love.

I'm not saying this is going to be easy. You'll definitely have jobs you think are going to be great but turn out completely horrible. Hopefully if you are unhappy at your job, you can quit and look for something else, but if you need the money, stay strong. Keep going but keep looking! No matter what you're field and how strange the job market is right now, I am confident that everyone can find their dream job eventually. Pursue your passions!
