Three Simple Rules In Life

I really like this quote because I think it applies perfectly to recent grads and job seekers out there. These three rules are something that I try to remind myself of consistently. Rule 1 really resonates with me because it took me some time to realize that when starting your career it’s really important to put yourself out there, know what you want, and not be afraid to go and get it. Graduating college was a rewarding accomplishment and something to be proud of, but it is only the beginning of a new chapter of dedication and hard work.

Rule 2 is essential when thinking about networking and making connections in your field of work. Networking is vital in PR and if you get the chance to reach out and make a connection, take it. You never know if it will come across again and how it may benefit you.

And finally, Rule 3 is really applicable to recent grads like myself. If you’re lucky, college makes up some of the best years of your life, and it will be hard to say goodbye to the life you have spent several years building. It’s important to always keep the memories your college years close, while simultaneously moving on and making memories for the next chapter of your professional life. Take time to reflect on what you learned, how you grew, and those that helped you to do so along the way. Make a photo frame, scrapbook or digital album of your favorite moments when you need a quick trip down memory lane. At the same time, prepare a new frame or scrapbook to fill with the new memories you’re soon to make. Be proud of where you’ve been, while remembering to look forward to where you’re going as well!
