Preparing for Life After College

You have a lot to look forward to after graduation, whether it’s launching your career or entering graduate school.  While you are still a student, take advantage of campus resources that will help you take the next step. 

  • Talk to your professors and academic advisor about graduate and professional school.
  • Develop a relationship with a career coach at the University Career Center to construct a personal job search plan and prepare for your job search, including resume help and mock interviews.
  • Use KU Career Connections to connect with employers looking for KU students through job listings, career fairs, and on-campus interviews.
  • Update or create a linkedin.com profile.
  • Reevaluate your social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, etc). Are you sending a message that says “hire me!” or will your profile raise some red flags for would-be employers?
  • Complete or update your resume and cover letter to prepare for your job search
  • Register for on-campus interviews and attend career fairs. 
  • Make a free appointment with Student Money Management Services to analyze your post-graduation finances and make a plan to manage your student loans and your budget.
  • Remember that as a student, you have access to Legal Services for Students.  Make an appointment for a consultation about your credit history, legal documents, leases, or employment contracts.
