  1. I guess it is better to try do it on your own since if one gets to rely too much on others, he or she won’t be able to do anything on their own. Of course getting a job after graduating might give you heebie jeebies, it might take you months to get a job but no matter what sooner or later you will find what you are looking for and I doubt coaches would be of great help. Surely, many may disagree but I remember my roommate getting used to using writing apps and online editing services instead of doing the job herself and that didn’t turned out well for her. Probably we can rely on others a little but I believe one should first try doing what they want by using their own strengths and if they fail, do it again. But when they completely loose faith in themselves, then if unable to get through this, they can ask for help.
