Encouraging college graduates to avoid a quarterlife crisis and embrace--instead of dread--life after school, this uplifting guide identifies ways to harness postcollegiate enthusiasm. From managing finances with an eye to the future and embarking on a fulfilling career path to balancing work and personal life, recent graduates will learn how to navigate this opportunity-packed time. Copious anecdotes illustrate the postschool ups and downs experienced by many of today's graduates and identify common issues and possible solutions--including effective job hunting, evaluating the benefit of graduate school, living at home, and general stress and depression. While acknowledging that this can be a tumultuous and anxious phase, particular emphasis is placed on the positive aspects of the period immediately following higher education, such as career advancement and personal growth.
