Congratulations on your graduation! I commend you for asking for advice.

I suggest moving forward with a daily prayer of "God. Please make Your desires mine." Ask Him, "What is Your will for my life?" "Please open and close doors according to Your will so that I will clearly know where to go."

Keep as your first priority, the desire to spread the Gospel (subtly or directly). I am positive that God will steer you. Be proactive. Definitely don't sit still waiting for a job to land in your lap (because as my friend says, God can't steer a parked car.) 

Lastly, I’m not sure if you graduated from high school or college, but if it was H.S., give this some thought. Getting a college education is great, but you don’t have to go to college right away, or full time. I went to work right after H.S., and I attended college at night. This wasn’t some great strategic plan, but it worked out perfect because even though it took me longer to attain my college degree, I was acquiring work EXPERIENCE and that counted for a lot and moved me up in position and salary sooner than my college friends who were 4 years behind. 

Best wishes to you! And remember Colossians 3:23-24, “Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men, because you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as your reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
