It is nearing graduation, and one Kent alumnus has taken a look back at where he was almost one year ago.
Albert Milton graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English from Kent State last summer. While he finds odd jobs teaching here and there, since graduation, he has struggled to find a job that incorporates his degree.
“It was like, I worked to do all of this and nobody really cares how many papers I wrote.” – Albert Milton
“I was really depressed, I think,
after I got out of college,” Milton said, “It was like I worked to do all of this and nobody really cares how many papers I wrote.”
Albert is not alone. Many college graduates find it difficult to find a job after school.
Graduate’s Assistant, Jessica Peck, says that the University has much to offer graduating seniors.
Often times, students don’t reach out and use the help that is offered. Although, most don’t even know it’s available.
The Career Services Center in the Schwartz Center offers programs that will help students prepare for their future.
While, these resources can be helpful, Milton says that often times you just have to be patient.
