As the end of this year's term is approaching, many students are worried about the prospects of their adult lives. The summer is to be filled with sending CV, going to various inteviews and the hope of being hired...One Facebook group put graduates' fears and worries in a simple phrase: "University is like being on the dole but your parents are proud of you."
The only advantage of being unemployed seems an abundance of free time though with a degree behind. While the youth unemployment is around 25% in the UK, it seems like graduates have paved the way to premature quarterlife crisis rather than a happy life with a decent job they have strived for. Students panic and regret going to universities as the degree does not necessary ensure a job of your speciality or any other job.
That is the current job market of England and it does not promise any possibilities to graduates. Students have no plans for September, no path ahead set out. Most of them should pay back loans usinf their transferable skills only. The main aim is to stand out from thousands of applicants who are seeking a job.
Many students decide to continue studying and making a masters degree. What's the reason? Perhaps, that will buy some time to realize what is to be done in future when students days are over.
