Advice for a graduate?

Ok, so I'll end my course in two weeks... and I'm feeling the predictable mix of things.
I like where I am now, I live near a lot of friends most of whom plan on staying round the area (London) and getting jobs. I am currently caught between staying and watching everything gradually dissolve/not be the same (not having that comfortable 'network'), or going (leaving the country) and possibly regretting it.
I think what I'll probably end up doing is staying for about 5 more months with a job, do a TEFL course and then around december leave England to teach abroad with my best friend and see a bit of the world before eventually doing a masters in a couple of years time.

Has anyone any advice relevant to my plan, or more generally just advice for someone graduating? Is there anything I should really consider? Or make sure I do before I end up actually settling down.

Thank you very much,
pq

Without knowing you, it's hard to give meaningful advice. But that sounds like a pretty good plan to me.

@The Pentacle Queen,
What job do you work? What do you plan on teaching?

I think that if this is what you want to do, go and do it! Do whatever makes you happy!!! Smile

@The Pentacle Queen,
You are going to 'leave' England to work in another Country? Are you English by citizenship?

Oh, and by the way... Did you know that the President of Syria, Mr. Bashar al-Assad was a student learning to become an eye specialist, Ophthalmology, in London, at the school of Western Eye Hospital, before he became President of Syria? He didn't really have Political aspirations, so it is said, but was called in after his brother, who was to become ruler of Syria, passed away. And that is when he had to leave his Ophthalmology pursuits to watch over his father's rule/regime. He took seat of rule in 2000, 18 years ago. Although Syria's Constitution has a combined 14 year maximum Presidential term, Mr. Bashar al-Assad has been in rule for 18 years. Syria has 2, 7 year terms as opposed to the U.S' 2, 4 year terms.


What would be required to 'leave the country' to work elsewhere? Any formal paper work and permissions needed? Or are you able to just get an airline ticket and go to the country of your choice to work?
