What are you going to do when you graduate? A student illustrator shares what it feels like to finish university.
Coming to the end of University is a disconcerting feeling. We’re stepping outside the framework provided by essay deadlines and student nights. With these securities about to collapse, the task at hand is to find a “next step”.
But some make easier progress than others.
The Hoop Jumper
You have happily ticked all the boxes, jumped through the hoops and are on your way to a shiny grad scheme.
The Start-up Kid
You are full of great ideas and have the drive to take on the world.
You know what you love and will happily go and bury your head in books and knowledge for the next year or few.
You plan not have a plan but to wander the world and discover something new.
The Canny Postgrad
You’ve worked out the answer to great education at a price you can afford and are off to do a masters in Holland?
That’s most of us. Graduation approaches and we’re preparing to walk into the void, armed with a host of “transferable skills”, wishing we had a more concrete game plan.
