HOPE Skills For: Adult Learners Students & Graduate Educators

“I have no idea what I want to do”

I heard this comment from a 22 year-old college graduate. He’s a bright, engaging, confident young man who played collegiate sports. Yet, he doesn’t know how to go about finding a job that he thinks he’d like.  Does this sound like you? If so, you’re not alone …lots of college grads have no idea of what they want to do “for the rest of their life” and you know what …that’s okay! You’re going to have 15-18 jobs, or more, in your lifetime so please don’t be worried if you don’t know what type of job you want when you’re in your early 20’s! What is important is to get any job and start learning a few things: 1) what you might like to do and 2) what you don’t like to do! 3) what type of people you want to work with. Remember, a JOB is Just Opportunity Beginning!

My school (a well known business college) didn’t teach me anything I could use that helped me get into business. Everything they taught was theory, nothing practical”.

This comment came from a 24 year old I met with who has his own franchise business. He’s a hard working young man who was surprised that his college didn’t prepare him for getting into his own business. The good news is, at least for him, he knew what to do because his family gave him knowledge and skills he needed …but his college didn’t!

Do you or your friends deal with these same issues? If so, how are you handling them? Not knowing what you want to do for the rest of your life when you’re in your 20’s is not a crisis.

However, you need a basic set of skills to get interviews, offers and begin working and being productive in any job. Skills which prepare you to stand out with co-workers and management.
