STEP 0) Stop acting like you’re entitled to a paycheck.

This is step zero, because it shouldn’t be a step at all.For some reason, a lot of people our age think they deserve a hefty paycheck immediately just because they have a college degree. We feel as though we are worthy of a great, highpaying job the second we throw our graduation cap into the air. Perhaps this is because weʼve been given trophies our whole lives just for showing up.
