August is approaching and many college students are returning to school, however for many who just graduated a sudden truth is starting to set in. You have no experience and no job prospects, and your parents questions of “what are you going to do with you life?” are starting to be said less jokingly.
Fear not lost and scared college grad! There are a plethora of options, one of the best ones I can recommend being AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a difference by serving your community. You gain valuable experience working in a field of interest, while changing the world around you for the better. It looks great on a resume and can give you experience doing things you never thought you could. I know everyday when I come home that I have helped to make the world a better place by working for the American Red Cross. So if you are looking to make a difference, serve your community, change someone’s life, take a year off, or just get out of your parent’s basement, AmeriCorps is a wonderful opportunity.
