Follow your heart…
There is so much pressure to fit the ‘corporate model’ of becoming a corporate lawyer, accountant, investment banker, management consultant etc because these are the only job options that we are told are for the best and the brightest graduates. If you were anything like me you’d pursue that route not necessarily because you wanted to but because all your friends were and you wanted to make your family proud.
When bumping into a fellow Warwick graduate later on down the line and the dreaded question of ‘what are you doing now?’ is asked, everyone wants to say they’re in some high flying career but should this really be at the expense of your overall fulfillment and happiness?
My advice to new graduates is to value your time, if you have a God-given talent and a passion to use it for good… use it! Don’t waste time in career options that are to please other people, follow your heart, work hard and success is guaranteed.
