Having trouble deciding what to do after graduation? Are you seeing all your friends get jobs, internships, getting into graduate school? Not certain if working for an ad agency or news outlet in New York is right for you? Do you want to take a gap year to travel or gain more experience? Feeling burnt out after an exhausting year online?
