I recently finished my final year at university just over a month ago and to be honest, I haven't been doing much as I plan on holiday towards the end of August for like a month or two. I can't go on holiday now because I don't know what results I got and I still have not attended my graduation ceremony which is in July. My dad is turning 50 towards the end of August and I want to celebrate it big with style and so if I go in July I can only go for 3 weeks. My birthday is in September and I want to celebrate that on holiday as it has been dead here.
Because of all of this, I haven't been applying for graduate jobs or jobs in general and I am starting to worry because a lot of my friends have jobs and are getting jobs and quite frankly I feel embarrassed living at home with my parents unemployed.
I was advised by a family friend that I have been worked too hard because I went to uni straight from school, went to uni for two years, did a placement and then completed my final year. He saw my perseverance and struggle in my final year and told my parents to let me go on holiday. He said even 6 months later there will be opportunities available and that as an interviewer himself - he prefers people who travel more. He said you don't really get a chance like this again once you start working. Is all of what he is saying true?
All in all, I am not admittedly very happy but I can definitely feel this holiday. It is just the future.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
