The Entrepreneur Mindset

Once students graduate from University, the world is supposedly their oyster but figuring out what to do next can be a daunting prospect. After spending three or four years studying, adjusting to life after university can be tough.

The graduation ceremony signifies the end of an era and the start of something new but many students are left wondering, ‘what next?’


What’s Next After Graduation?

There are a number of different routes to take as students contemplate what to do after university – and everyone’s journey will be different. The Entrepreneur Mindset forms part of the FirstBank Youth proposition, comprising of the dedicated Youth account Xplore First.

In addition, FirstBank has developed a program which aims to provide students with the necessary tools required to ensure that as they transit from University into the big wide world, they already possess the required tools and resources to make the next necessary decisions about which path they will take; work or entrepreneurship.

At FirstBank we believe that there are only 2 clear options – search for a graduate job or set up your own business.
