Expectations and reality are often quite different – especially when it comes to how we envision life after graduation.
I’ve faced this first-hand and that’s why I’m launching a new project with Road to Employment: an interactive interview series and podcast where I speak with students and recent graduates about their struggles with the school-to-work transition, their success stories, and their honest and realistic advice for youth.
Road to Employment is a great initiative, whose mission I am truly supportive of. I am thrilled to be a contributor to their website and to be able to share my project on a larger scale, so that students in high school, college, and university – as well as those supporting their academic and career development – can access and benefit from the resources provided.
It is our hopes that this interview series will shed light on how youth experience the school-to-work transition by speaking with students and recent graduates in various fields ranging from law to communications, medicine to education – and hearing what their academic and career trajectories have been, what insight they have for others considering a program or profession in their field, as well as their own unique experiences during this transitional time.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have a story that you would like to share!
