Advice for college graduates and TV in Japan

Advice for recent college graduates

If you are about to graduate from college, there are three financial things you should definitely do once you get your real-world job.

First, make sure you sign up for the 401(k) plan or any similar retirement plan if it’s available. Second, through payroll deduction, set aside a percentage of your pay in a savings account (not checking) that you will not touch. This will be your emergency money. I suggest 10 percent from every paycheck.

And, if you are renting, get renter’s insurance.

Japanese TV
