Congratulations! You've earned your shiny new degree and you’re ready to join the workforce. But it’s not as easy as you think! Here, first job struggles every fresh college graduate has to deal with.

1. It’s a climb.

It doesn’t matter what’s on your resume. You have to start from the bottom—going on coffee runs, photocopying errands, and finding lost files for your boss. It won’t be easy, but just hang in there, and you’ll get used to the daily work grind soon enough.

2. You think you know everything, but you don’t.

Sure, you graduated at the top of your marketing class and your thesis won an award. You are smart, sassy, and can successfully walk in three-inch stilettos. But being new to the working world also means accepting that you don’t know everything. Listen to your peers—and don’t take it personally when your boss calls you out on a mistake you made. It’s all part of the learning process.

3. Money won't come easy.

Your entry-level paycheck at a start-up creative agency probably isn’t enough to pay for all your gastos. We're all familiar of that moment when we had to swap our favorite latte with cheaper office coffee just because your bills and other financial ~responsibilities~ are piling up. Not only are you now expected to be an all-around supergirl, there are times when you have to do it with a struggling bank account. 

But there are some days when you can actually reward yourself for a job well done. Giving yourself little treats every now and then can actually balance the stresses of adulting. The good news? You can do this without burning a hole in your newbie pocket! Take for example Sun Cellular's Postpaid Best Value Plan 599, which comes with unli calls and texts to Sun, 400 texts to other networks, and has 400MB mobile surfing! It's the perfect plan for keeping in touch with your family and friends now that you have a busy career life (admit it, sometimes all you need is to keep in touch with your loved ones). It even includes Samsung J1 Mini and Samsung Tab 3V in its bundle.
