    I have been a student all.my life, with one paid job and several years of volunteer wfor and its all coming to an end this year and I am very worried. I love being a student, the free time you get is amazing and if you want a day off you can just not go in.

    When I graduate, it changes dramatically, if I want a day off I have to take leave and if I have no leave left then I'm just having to go in. I also know I will hate my life because working for a company you are essentially a pawn for the company or a slave getting paid, the company don't care about you you and cab replace you at any time...how am.I supposed to live feeling like that?

    I also have very bad anxiety and I will feel so bad when I get a job. I will feel like I am just one person in a massive company who ks not really important in the grand scheme of things and it will get me so depressed.

    What do I do? Is it all work to live after this? I am studying computing and am not going to be looking for a job in that sector when I graduate, to give some insight. I have no clue what job to look for

    It doesn't necessarily have to get worse from here.
    Ideal situation is you find a job you love, but sometimes this isn't the case.
    Every little counts -so one less person in the company can still have an effect.
    If you really don't want to be part of a company,you can consider being your own boss? Bear in mind that it can get stressful at times.
    However, you still have free time where you can meet with friends, socialise, engage in your hobbies, possibly volunteer, join sports clubs etc

    Its quite possible that they aren't free. Welcome to the adult world. You have to make your own fun sometimes. You'll enjoy relaxing after work, so you could read etc.
    With your friends, you have regular meet ups which you sort out between you so that work etc doesn't clash
    You make new friends at work.

    Welcome to the world of work, please hand in your dignity (if you still have it) and any hopes or dreams you may have once had.

    On a serious note, working is pretty great if you love your job. It gives you far more opportunities to enjoy life since it gives you the capital to do things you would not have previously been able to do.
