If you are then you are not alone as recent studies have shown that there has been a huge increase in employability anxiety over the last decade and this hits students more so than other groups of people. Students often spend a good number of years at college or university before graduating, and during this time they may well rack up thousands of pounds worth of debt. When the time finally comes and they graduate and start to look for work, the worry and stress of it all can be too much for some.

Interviews with students suggest that many of them feel anxious as the time approaches where they finish their course and must look for work. Some students have described the feeling from a knot in their stomach to a full blown anxiety attach with leaves them struggling for breath and feeling extremely over whelmed. It is important to talk to people about how you are feeling – you may want to confide in a friend or family member or even a lecturer. You can also speak to specialist career advisors or seek help from a councillor who will be able to give you some coping skills for dealing with stress and amenity.
