Contd. I’m 25 and graduating with my bachelors in less than a month. Our commencement ceremony has been canceled which is a major let down considering I’ll be the first college grad in my family. Currently I am working in public at a small firm with <15 employees. I went to a non-target school so had no access to big firms. I plan on pursuing my masters at a target school in the city this fall where I will have access to better recruiting opportunities. As I see it the fresh grads are in the driver’s seat for the future. Yes, it might suck and we’re not be able to land the job we want right out of school or we aren’t getting raises this year, but here is my take on it. I was a teenager during the 2008 meltdown and witnessed the recovery. Looking at everyone in the 30-35 range that were in the same position as the fresh grads are now. They have absolutely been thriving during the bull run we just went through. They were able to get on at the ground level during the bottom of the economy and get their experience while the job market was shit. Once they had 5 years of experience or so the economy was recovering and they were able to cherry pick the good jobs with high paying salaries where most of them are now. THIS WILL BE US IN 5 YEARS! Now for my unpopular opinion – This isn’t a political statement and I’m not touting the guy but all signs point to Trump being re-elected. I know much of reddit hates the man but he is a hell of a business man and will focus on bringing this economy back and the DJIA will hit new all-time highs during his second term. This is great for our industry and the jobs will be coming back. Get out there and grind for a few years. Establish your position in your public firm, secure your cushy industry job, or start your own firm during this down time! THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT

[1/2] Hi all, I apologize because I know there have been posts on this bowl with similar subject matter recently, but I really need advice.

My work and my work product is not an issue - my partner has repeatedly commended me on everything I produce, but my billable hours are seriously lacking.
