Hey there! You must be thinking that I am going to write about my travel experience from college to my office… but no! That’s not it. I couldn’t think of any better title for it. I am going to tell you about my experience that many people like me have to face when they somehow have to do as their parents say just to please them. One day I was a student, and next day I am an intern… yes, and there is no gap in between. So why am I writing it? Because there must be many other peeps like me who’ve never ever been into anything professional and when they finally enter into an office culture, they feel like they don’t belong here, especially when you are a freakin’ introvert! (Basically what I am feeling right now). Even with a post-grad degree you feel like you don’t know a thing. But I have come to a conclusion that it’s okay and natural because it’s a transitional phase. From school to college, it didn’t matter because you and all your fellows were on the same level. But in the office environment, you see some pretty successful fellows. Some of them might even be younger than you are, making it very depressing even though it should motivate you to work harder. So, basically if you were somewhat social in your college, this office thing is going to give you some sort of shock. So what should be done? My advice is to go with the flow as I am doing. It takes time to settle down and it takes time to get to know people. But I want to highlight here one thing that those people who have entered into this setup just because of their parents and not by their own will. We often see multiple quotes telling us to do what your heart desires, but because we live in a society where there is still the presence of family culture, you also want to make your parents happy and you also want to do what you like. So I think you should give some of your precious time to make your parents happy and then gradually indulge yourself in something that you like. I am an MBA (Finance) by profession and I am doing internship in accounts but although it is my field, I feel like I don’t belong here. And that is what many of my age fellows feel because of one simple reason. Students in Pakistan don’t get career counseling and they end up doing what they don’t like. And then finding out what they like is really, really hard. I like reading and I like writing. Thank God, I got this figured out. I have started my blog and writing so that I don’t end up being a total failure after my internship ends and I know what I have to do now. My advice to all those students out there who are about to graduate or who are already graduates but are not yet working, all you need to do is identify one single thing that you like. And it can be totally irrelevant to your field and that is okay. But figuring out is the ladder towards success!
