Post-Grad Interview Series

Life after graduation is exciting, but it can also be intimidating for many students. It’s often the first time in your life that there are no more boxes to check, no more requirements to meet, no one telling you what comes next. And everyone’s post-graduation journey is different – some people know way before graduation where they’ll be working or interning, some people don’t have anything lined up at graduation, others fall somewhere in the middle, some go on to graduate school, some travel, and others just take it one day at a time. Whatever you end up doing after graduation, know that you’re not alone!

For this series, we’ll be following a group of Spring 2018 Digital Studies graduates as they navigate through their first year of life after college. The first round of interviews took place over the summer and we’ll check back in with the graduates throughout the fall, winter and spring to see what they’re up to, how their jobs or internships are going (or their job/internship search), and what advice they might have for you before you graduate!
