Anxiety arises as newly graduated students transition from education to employment. This adjustment period involves a series of unfamiliar changes and stricter norms, causing extreme pressure and worries to graduates. Method: The researchers utilized phenomenological research design to discern the lived experiences of fresh graduates as they transition into a new life significant life phase relative to the central question, "How do newly graduate college students manage challenges concerning job hunting?". Findings: Findings have indicated that graduates' previous expectations are much different from the reality of employment. The usual struggles the graduates have encountered are reduced job opportunities, increasing responsibilities, and working environment differences. Conclusion: Various stressors and numerous difficulties are inevitable in facing a school-to-work change. However, despite the workforce's complicated reality, these challenges have developed the graduates' coping mechanisms, perspective, and adaptability throughout the transition. Recommendation: This paper recommends to have a set of respondents who were academic achievers to compare the degree of struggles, pressure, and anxiety experienced in the transition. It is also suggested to select merely one group with the same employment status, either employed or unemployed graduates. Future researches may also choose to focus on a particular industry to obtain more precise results
