The time has come for the issuance of diplomas in higher educational institutions. In addition to flowers and congratulations, university graduates receive numerous tips and wishes from their friends and relatives. Prepared advice for young graduates and the Business Insider publication. Here are the top 20 tips “I'd love to hear after graduation”.

1. Find a job at a startup led by an experienced and smart entrepreneur. There you will gain valuable experience, try various professions, which will help you decide on a career.

2. Prepare for the fact that you will not like your first job. Keep searching and you will surely find a place where everything suits you.

3. Travel abroad for at least a year - to Europe, South America or Asia - and find temporary work there. This will give you additional experience and make you more attractive to a future employer.

4. It doesn't matter what university you studied at and what grades you got there. A diploma will help you find your first job, but once you get it, everything will depend on you and how well you work.

5. Call potential employers after submitting your resume. They are invited to an interview not only because of the necessary qualifications, but also because of the persistence of the applicant.

6. Take your first job as seriously as it will determine your future career and financial position.

7. Drink expensive alcohol - after it there is no heavy hangover.

8. The first five years after graduation are not that important, so don't worry if you can't find a great job quickly. Try different professions and travel as much as possible.

9. Strive for your dreams and do not give up at the first difficulties. Refusal in one place does not mean that somewhere else you will not be told “yes”. Don't expect your dream job to be brought to you on a silver platter. In the end, you will achieve what you want.

10. Almost no one knows after university what they really want. Try to understand yourself, ask more questions, be ready to complete various tasks. Also, don't go to graduate school just for a prestigious degree or because you don't know what to do. Better to do self-education and attend special courses.

11. Make yourself irreplaceable. Do anything that makes the employer's life easier, even if it's not your job.

12. Don't let money influence your decision making. You have a debt for your studies that needs to be paid back, but you should not deprive yourself of a comfortable life because of this. If you strive for your dream, you will find an interesting job and you will end up with enough money.

13. Try to network or develop a network of useful business contacts and contacts. It is best to have as many friends as possible, and in a wide variety of areas.

14. Do not assume that your first job will stay with you for the rest of your life. It's okay if you don't like it very much - get experience and look for another place.

15. Be prepared to dislike your first job.

16. Be more flexible in your job choices and life plans.

17. After graduation, take your time with your first job. Go on a trip for several months, or better for one year. You will never be young and free again.

18. If you have to choose a job from two - choose the one where you will be nervous. Go to a position for which you do not have enough experience and qualifications. Better to be nervous than bored.

19. Identify your unique qualities and how they can be useful to the employer.

20. Don't listen to any advice.
