Post-Grad

PRE-GRADUATION
[The last week of teacher’s college] “What a waste of time. I can’t wait for this to be over already.”

[The last day of classes] “Wohoo! I’m free! Time to live my dream and start a blossoming career as an educator and shape the lives and minds of thousands of children for the better!” 

POST-GRAD PHASE 1: Quarter-Life Crisis
I need to find a job.”

“Minimum wage? No way.”

“I’m over-qualified.”

“I’m under-qualified.”

“Why won’t they hire me?”

“AM I NOT GOOD ENOUGH?”

[Panics]

[Breaks down]

POST-GRAD PHASE 2: Reality Check
It’s only been two weeks since classes ended, why am I getting so worked up about this job hunting business? I need to relax a little.” 

[Does nothing]

POST-GRAD PHASE 3: Guilt
“Oh God. Is that… It is…”

“…Student loans.”  

“OH PLEASE GOD I WILL TAKE ANY JOB I CAN GET AS LONG AS I DO NOT HAVE TO SACRIFICE MY DIGNITY!”

[Breaks down]

POST-GRAD PHASE 4: The Return To The Job Hunt

[Applies to any and all jobs available]

[Gets interview]

“What if they want to hire me?”

[Panics]
