Women in the workplace – how to navigate post-grad life and career crossroads 

Pretty Posts | |

Pretty Birds, your first foray into the working world will probably be a moment you’ll never forget. There is nothing quite like getting that piece of paper, attending your graduation and reflecting on all the hard work that went into your newfound qualification. And, of course, saying goodbye to the 7 a.m. classes, clunky textbooks, and stressful exams related to higher education can be the ultimate relief. If you are a seasoned professional, going freelance or opening up your own shop will affirm all your hard won experience and expertise.

But as one door closes, another chapter begins. The working world can be a precarious place for any adult, and young women particularly face a variety of struggles. As we are in the midst of graduation season, we spoke to some women who share the same worries you may be experiencing to garner some insights and tips for moving to the next step in your professional journey.
