**This a re-post from an article I wrote on LinkedIn in 2016 but I believe the recommendations still apply and I tweaked it slightly for 2021**
From the euphoric highs of graduation and reveling in the culmination of a 4 year long goal to the depressing lows of staring at a screen hoping for a lifeline, I've experienced it firsthand. Life often comes at you hard and fast, leaving you to scramble to get to grips. I know what it feels like to be unemployed immediately after graduation, it is not a pleasant feeling to say the least. It's difficult to see your peers progressing with their careers while you're standing still. But I'm here to tell you it doesn't last forever, just believe! Here are some of my tips for getting through this challenging period.
While I was applying to all these jobs over a span of time that felt like forever, a close friend would always tell me "you only need one to say yes". Thankfully, I have now been employed for 4+ years and have even switch jobs once. Those firms took a chance on me and I come in everyday making sure they never regret that decision. I hope this helps anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.
