Making a Smooth Transition From Student to Employee

transition from student to employee

It can be hard saying goodbye to the world of university and saying hello to the world of work. No more will you have those long lie-ins, group lectures or all-nighters. Instead, you need to get ready to put those well-earned skills to good use. Right now, you’re a small fish in a big pond.  Here’s some tips on making the transition from student to employee.  If you follow these methods then you should be able to adjust to the world of work without any potential problems.

Get the right accommodation

If you are looking for a way to stretch your wings, you may be considering getting yourself in a bigger city. The freedom you experienced in university is a great way to start getting prepared for adulthood. If you manage to find yourself a job in a larger city, such as London, Manchester or Leeds, you will need to find the right accommodation. Try and consider finding a flat with some friends or look online for a house share in the right neighbourhood. Once you have found the perfect spot, and have checked the area to make sure it has a good reputation, all you need to do is arrange for a little moving help from a reliable company like Man and Van Hire in London to make sure that you and your furniture get over there in one piece.

The Essentials

Think about when you made the move from high-school to university. You brought the essential furniture and food packets with you to ensure that you were able to work in comfort and that you didn’t starve. Well, do the same thing when moving to your new work place. Bring your cup, your food and any work items you need to fulfil your daily duties. If you set up a comfortable work environment at home and at your new office, you will find that you will fit in smoothly.


 If you are going to be sending out your CV to your latest employer, you need to make sure that you have Wi-Fi installed in your new accommodation. It takes a lot of work to get started on the job ladder. So, you are probably going to be searching the local job channels quite a lot to find a position that suits you the best. Make sure that you get your wi-fi installed before you get to your flat. That way you can be instantly connected.

Bills and Payments

There’s a lot more to adult life than just living in a student house. You’re on your own two feet now. That means you need to figure out how you’re going to be paying for things like council tax, electricity, gas or water bills. If you want to keep those sorts of things off your mind, you can use direct debits to make sure the bills are paid on time. Make sure to set up a direct debit to your account to make sure that you never forget about a bill. If you forget about them, you may find that you are in for a nasty surprise. If all else fails then you can set a time in your calendar each month to remind you.

Making the transition from student to employee is a big change, but you’ve arrived at the future you dreamed of!
