Editor's note: For many new graduates, moving from school into the workplace can be a massive culture shock. They are going from an environment where everyone has been in the same generational outlook to a sudden diverse social environment with people of all ages and backgrounds present. How can one get over the culture shock? China Daily readers share their suggestions for new grads.

Get a low-paid but rewarding job. The lowest paying job is an internship. But it can be worth its weight in gold as a stepping stone to a career. If employers are saying to some graduates - the problem is, you have no work experience and they keep saying: the problem is you have no work experience! - then the probability is that: the problem is that you have no work experience! How many times does a graduate need to hear this? If you believe that the work experience will add to your chances, go out and get it. Hey, in a low paid job is better than in an unpaid job! Your first job and first wage does NOT define you for life! See one of my graduate market posts about: the problem of the reserve price of labour. Time passes, things change, need to adjust to realities of the market!
