No one knew how life-altering the COVID-19 pandemic was in the beginning of the year, and college seniors are just a handful of people whose lives were very much impacted by the coronavirus.

On spending what would have been the last sem of her senior year in quarantine, “I tried to tell myself that this is practice for me when I begin a new chapter of my life,"  Candy Rookie Franny Balburias, a senior Communication student from Ateneo de Manila University, said. "I would have wanted to end my college life and cheer career on other terms, but I guess this (is) okay, too. It helps me ease into the new things I’ll have to get used to." 

The next challenge these fresh graduates face is finding a job in this climate. You might feel slightly discouraged, but with some research, portfolio tweaking, and upskilling when you have an opportunity, it's definitely not impossible to land a job this year.
