    You’ve just graduated and your dream job is lined up to start in a few weeks’ time. Or so you think until you start the first day and it becomes clear that this will be anything but easy. Even though most graduates will have a little training before they start, depending on their profession, they may not be ready for everything.

    This is when an organization like the National Association of Graduate Teachers can come in extremely useful.

    This association is designed to support graduate teachers in various fields with networking opportunities, continuing education programs and professional development resources. Not only does this help them transition smoothly into their new job after graduation, but it also gives them the tools they need to succeed long-term as an employee and as a professional within their field.
