Unemployment is something a lot of college graduates are worried about. I was once one of those people. I spent three months before graduation and about five months after searching for some sort of job.

So here’s what I bought.

If you’re a millennial there’s a really good chance that you have some sort of student loan debt.

In this #TakeBackMillennial post, I want to go over all of the facets of student loan/college debt. From what to do with it if you have it, ways to prevent it (for the younger millennials), and how to deal with the mental health aspects of it.
