There's one goal after university: find the perfect job and heaven knows how much it's difficult. Here's five reasons to stop panicking about what you will do next.

Graduation must be close? Are you starting to worry because you have no idea about your future? Don’t. Sometimes, not knowing is the best way. That means your options are wide open and you will succeed in a career that you had never expected.

You are not the only one

Just be patient. Finding a job and planning your future is a big step. And worrying will not help you. Remember, there are lots of graduates in the same position as you. And the most successful are the ones who do not give up and keep trying. Everyone must accept a little rejection in his life; it will drive you to succeed. But don’t forget you do not need a step-by-step plan; just motivation and then you can accomplish anything. You have to know that failure is absolutely required to savour the success.
