Successful Post-secondary Transition

Congratulations! At this point, you have an idea of what sort of career you would like, you've made a plan, developed some transferable skills along the way, and have graduated high school.

This may be the first time that you are living apart from family and friends and common challenges can include:

Money management
Even if you have taken a financial literacy course in high school, you may find your real life finances to be challenging. Explore this comprehensive directory of personal finance blogs, books, podcasts, etc.

Time management
Did your parent/guardian/teacher ever remind you about an upcoming deadline? Now imagine life without that. Sounds nice? It can be, as long as you are successful at managing your own time. See below for some resources.

Asking for help
Definitely try to problem-solve on your own, but also, don't be afraid to ask for help.
