Some people think life is like a video game: You move through the levels while collecting your points, weapons, and whatever you’ll need for the next level. Then you repeat the process as you move through the game. Others feel like the school years are just prep time for the first level of that game, which starts when you enter the workforce after graduation.
College students preparing for their job search after graduation start feeling like the game is getting pretty intense. The months before graduation are so full of finals and wrapping up loose ends that the next level, entry into the workforce, gets put off.
But just like those games where you wander past objects and find out later that you should have picked them up, there are things you need to collect before you get out of school.
