17 Signs That Show You’re a College Grad

The average 2013 college graduate can take up to six months to find a job and owes over $27,000 in student loans with a 6.8% interest rate. If you think “kids these days” have it easy, think again. These are the common rants and frustrations many of us have faced. By Juliet Rocco

1. Your school loan statements just got really real.


2. People keep asking if you’re going back for a Master’s degree anytime soon


3. If your bank account had feelings, it might be crying right now


4. You call your career your “grown-up job” and you’re proud of it!


5. You make a promise to yourself to have loans paid off before you become a grandparent


6. People continually ask “So what do you want to do with your life?”


7. You can still use your student ID for discounts 🙂


8. You like to stare at your diploma and that’s perfectly alright because it took 4 years and over $150,000 to get that fancy piece of paper


9. Living at home becomes the norm because you can’t afford anywhere else that isn’t the size of a closet or isn’t infested with roaches & rats


10. You go on the job interview, but don’t get the job


11. When somebody posts about their fantastic new job on Facebook and you like their status anyway…


12. You start wondering when friends who have been dating since college or longer are going to get engaged


13. Your school has probably already called/emailed/snail-mailed you about donating money to them (do they know how much you owe in student loans? Because of them?)


14. The amount of work productivity is based on the amount of caffeine consumed


15. You make more connections on LinkedIn than at parties now


16. After a long day of work, all you want to do is have some dinner and roll into bed to catch up on DVR’d TV shows


17. You realize that you’re currently at a crossroads in life and even though it’s kind of intimidating at times, it’s exciting to think about the new journey that lies ahead
