Finally, a few more CBCampus Ambassadors share their advice for next year’s graduating class:

mike-s1Mike:  So, for the graduating class of 2010, I would say that when you are deciding what you want to do for a career make sure that it is something you care about and feel like you can be happy. This is the most important thing and the best advice I could offer. I cannot imagine being stuck in a career that you are miserable in but you are just doing it because of the money.

I know that I like certain areas and I am interested in other but I have not found the job that I could honestly say that I would love to do for the rest of my life. I mean no one ever told me that it was not all about how much your salary is or the benefits package. I feel like I have never really looked past the immediate gratification so I would advise the next class to look to a more fulfilling career.

cbnickNicholas: I guess that is what is good about college, is that everything you do or don’t do is a learning experience, the best thing you can do is to put yourself on the line to succeed or fail and then really reflect on your experience and try to learn from your mistakes.  The best advice I can give you is to try because if I promise you, you won’t want to look back and regret or imaging what could have happened if I just tried doing this.  The last and most important tip I can give you, is to have fun and live life, because the real world is coming just around the corner!

Andrew: Looking back over my four years, I wish I had made more of an effort to establish acbandrew consistent contact with my career center. I visited once during my freshman year, but at that point in my life, a career seemed far off. Since then, I have just recently started visiting again. The opportunities these centers provide to their students are endless and if properly utilized, can get you on the right path to any career you can aspire to have. It is crucial to start your career search as early as possible so that you can explore every opportunity your school may have for you.
