Where am I going after graduation?

I didn’t want senior year to end. I was living with my closest friends, making great strides in my academics and extracurriculars, and overall having an amazing time. But despite my enthusiasm for all that my last year of college had to offer, I felt a cloud hanging over me that grew heavier as the school year drew to a close: employment.

Unlike many of my peers, I did not feel prepared for life after graduation. I had no interest in going to grad school, and I wasn’t making steps toward a career track like the rest of my peers. I didn’t even know what my desired career track was! I tried to prolong my job search, but as graduation loomed I was forced to face facts: In a few weeks, I would be unemployed.

Even though the thought of life after school without a specific plan or destination was daunting, I knew I could rely on prayer to give me peace and answers. I’d learned from attending the Christian Science Sunday School that prayer helps us feel more of God’s presence and care, right in the face of challenging circumstances. And I’d also learned that God is divine Love—infinite and all-powerful. So it was natural to trust that a good outcome would follow from my prayers, since feeling more of Love’s control in my life had always had practical, healing effects.
