Doing the corporate thing defintely takes some time getting used to, especially right out of college. You're so used to having small breaks throughout the day in between classes and having constant social interaction with your peers - that cubicle life is an adjustment to say the least.
Being a "millennial" myself, I have read numerous articles about how this generation expects things to happen so quickly, and we almost were brought up to expect instant gratification out of college. The older generations knock on this approach, but it almost is something we can't help since this is what we were led to believe throughout our educational career. Go to school, attend a decent university, land a job right away and pull in $50k.
Then the recession hit in 2008 and the economy is still recovering. Long story short, life for this generation isn't exactly what we were basically promised, but such is life and nothing is ever promised. Tuition costs are rising, rent costs are up in most major citites, and starting salaries are lower than that of the Generation X.
But you know what, we all are going through it. I have a decent salary position at a Fortune 500 company, but I also have a side hustle I still do on the weekends that I worked throughout college.
Anyway, do the corporate thing for a couple years to get some experience. Nobody is advancing in this market without some kind of experience, unless you have the funds to start your own business at this point in life. Enjoy the health benefits, and find a mentor to lean on.
Keep yourself busy with extracurricular stuff, and youll adjust to the new phase in life.
So much truth in this post. Its really important to look forward to activities outside of work. Work cant be your life. Even if your enjoy your work, you need other things ouside of it to enjoy.
