Work doesn’t have to feel like Work with a capital W. You should be able to feel passion, purpose, and meaning in whatever you do. And that shift in perspective can open up a world of possibilities.

1. CARS 101. How to buy a car, pick car insurance, and general car maintenance. Information for the car you need to buy to be a community OT, which is one of the most common first jobs for OTs.
2. Your new best work friend. How to make friends with the cool team social worker/nurse/pt/etc.
3. Realistic budgeting. it costs about 2000 dollars to register with your college, write your exam, and pay for practice insurance, all before you even get a damn job, so here’s a course about saving for that and we’ll tell you about student debt management too.
4. it’s all an illusion: how to be an adult You’ve been a student your whole life and you secretly believe that when you get a job, you’ll suddenly be able to get up at 7 to go to work on time, have enough time to make breakfast every morning, you won’t have holes in your clothes, you’ll go to the gym and you won’t need to call your mom when you are sad…even though you know that’s an unreasonable belief that this somehow happens overnight. For some people this transition is smooth. For others, the transition isn’t so graceful and that’s ok
