Here are insights I wish I had before graduating and through my learning journey

Networking is key.

Building relationships with professionals in your field, whether through internships, job opportunities, or industry events, can be incredibly valuable for your career. These connections can provide valuable insights, advice, and even job opportunities in the future.

Don't be afraid to take risks.

Sometimes, the best learning opportunities come from stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new. Whether it's pursuing an internship in a new field or taking a course outside of your major, taking risks can help you gain new skills and experiences that can benefit your career.

Always be learning.

The world is constantly changing, and the skills that were valuable in the past may not be as valuable in the future. Make sure to stay up to date with new developments in your field and continuously improve your skills to remain competitive in the job market.

Focus on transferable skills.

While it's important to develop expertise in your specific field, it's also valuable to build a diverse set of skills that can be applied to a variety of situations. These "soft skills," such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving, can be useful in any career and can help you stand out to employers.

Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Whether you're struggling with a difficult course or are unsure about what career path to pursue, it's okay to ask for help. Reach out to mentors, career advisors, or even friends and family for advice and support. These individuals can provide valuable insights and guidance that can help you succeed.
