This will be text etc. and so forth and more….Making the transition from college to their careers is challenging. Even the most confident of college students feel that they are not fully prepared for the next step. As parents you walk a bit of a tightrope. You are clearly not the driver in this situation and it is important to understand that.
Our guess is that you were interested in having conversations with your student about their future, especially if they are seniors. For some of you these were great conversations and you are feeling comfortable that your college student has a viable plan for moving into a career, and that they are starting to execute it. For others this was a less productive conversation and you are still concerned. You are worried that they don’t have a plan, that they are not yet sure what they want, and that they are too overwhelmed to figure out how to get there from here.
