Everybody knows deciding what to do after high school can be tough, especially when: your Year 12 results weren't what you'd hoped for; you have no clue what you want to do with The Rest of Your Life; your parents are obsessed with you studying law/accounting/puppetry despite the fact you'd rather, well, gnaw off your own arm. So how do you get through it? Bestselling author Rebecca Sparrow is back to share the advice she wished someone had told her when she left school. Like how to decide if your dream is really a career or just a hobby. Or how to find a mentor and deal with your first workplace humiliation.
