Advice To College Graduates From League

Congratulations, graduate! You’ve completed a long four year journey and should be proud. But once you put away that cap and gown, it’s time to move into your next phase of life. League team members have concrete advice for new college graduates we hope will guide you as you being your life after college.

Account Manager Andrea Pesce graduated from Kutztown University just a year ago in May 2016 with a degree in communications and a triple minor in Public Relations, Professional Writing, and Digital Communications & New Media. “My advice to recent grads is to BE PATIENT with their job search!” Andrea said. “I applied to over 100 jobs before being called by League and it was frustrating but so rewarding in the end. Know your worth and know that you will find where you are meant to be—it just might not be the day after graduation.”

Ink Department Supervisor Edd Glassmire graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia in 2014, and he reminds grads that it’s about more than just your degree that matters. “Although your diploma is a necessity, it’s not going to get you a job,” Edd said. “It’s just a piece of paper. It’s your dedication and ambition that will land you the job you want.”

Graphic Production Artist Meghan McCloskey graduated in 2015 from the University of South Carolina, and she suggests you take some time off. “Take advantage of your free time after graduation!” she said. “Travel, go on road trips, enjoy your open summer—the corporate world can wait. After that, look for a job with a fun work environment like League!”

Stephanie Price, our Graphic Services Design Lead, graduated from Moore College of Art & Design in 2013. “My advice to graduates is to be proud of all that you have accomplished thus far,” she said. “Cherish the experiences you had in school and continue your journey with patience, gratitude, and confidence.”

Licensing Assistant Emily Deni graduated from Temple University in 2015, and she offers some excellent advice. “No need to panic,” she said. “No one else knows what they’re doing either!”

Congratulations, new grads!
