First starting out as an eBook series, The Graduate’s Guide has developed into an online resource for young people who are unsure of the next steps to take on their journey into the workforce. We’re here to share ideas, encourage collaboration and empower graduates and jobseekers to build their own unique careers and lifestyles.
The Graduate’s Guide team is run by a team of like-minded creatives who have all taken a different path from education into the workforce and are here to share our experiences and lessons learned along the way. We want to provide the support we needed but perhaps didn’t always have, as well as showcase the many different choices and avenues available after school.
There is no one way to live your life. Everyone’s path will be different and the timeline is not always linear.
As young people pursuing creative or non-traditional careers, the journey into the workforce is not always linear. Our artistic and imaginative ambitions can often be met with social stigma or dismissed as pursuing a ‘hobby’ as a career. At The Graduate’s Guide, we are here to create a safe space that empowers creative minds to be passionate about their dreams and alleviate the pressures of falling behind during these formative years.
Our goal is founded on the belief that today, the path into the workforce is forever changing and that everyone’s experience is different. The transition from university into the workforce can often be daunting and we want to remind everyone that they are not alone in this process and that the journey is just as important as the destination.
If you relate to any of the above, The Graduate’s Guide is here for you – providing practical tips, advice, support, up-skilling opportunities and mentoring, as well as offering multiple platforms to share your ideas and passions within our community and with the world.
We’re thrilled to have the support of The Mentorship as we expand on the mission of harnessing creativity to inspire confidence in the future generations. Our hope is that everything you find here not only helps you achieve your goals, but opens your eyes to the amazing possibilities that exist for people who create them!
