    This is great!

    I especially agree with the point 'know who you are '. When we have complete clarity, we can find work that actually matters to us.

    Thanks for sharing this :)

    As someone who is in grad school now, I am constantly thinking about what will happen when I finally need to go out in the job market. This article highlights many of the things I feel when I start thinking about it. I'm not out for a job that makes me a huge amount of money. I'm out for one that is important to me and makes me feel like I am giving my all. I want to make a serious contribution and I know that I am creating something of value.

      That's the dream right?! I definitely know what you're feeling. It's the sentiment many millenials in our generation share and struggle with. I think it's the small steps you take towards doing something of worth that will shape what you end up doing. It may not come in a perfect job right off the bat, but eventually, the internships you try, the volunteer opportunities you take and the jobs you get will give you a direction, and if nothing else tell you what you don't want to do!

      What are you going to grad school for, if I may ask?

      :)

        I am going to grad school for Design Management. I love my program! It is definitely preparing me to do just about anything. And the idea behind the article definitely highlights why I chose the program I did.
