Good points, Luckiest! I have found that so many people who are starting out in the job market think they will find the perfect job the first try. And it *does* happen, but not as often as we would like.
I encourage these newbies to get settled in this first job and learn the ropes. Just because a job/career start does not become what one would hope for, there are always learning experiences that can be taken to the next job. Work hard, network, learn as much as possible, and keep your eyes open for other opportunities. Don't burn your bridges and leave the first job on ugly terms. Then your dance card will reflect this when you use it as a reference on your next one.
To master a job or a profession usually it takes a long time. Do we have it?

Good luck, LUCKIEST
More great advice from the master!
It is a new year and you are still looking for the job that you are going to love.
A lot of career guidance is based on the premise that choosing a career is like
going on a date site and looking over prospective mates.
Talking to someone about a career is like dancing with a new partner.
You won't know until you have tried many different jobs.
Research supports the dance model, not the datebook.
