At the end of this month I'm finally going to get my degree. It sounds exciting, but I still have no idea what to do afterwards.

I don't know exactly what is the equivalent terminology in the American system, but I'm almost sure it's Undergraduate.

Okay. Then you have three main options, I guess: enter the workforce, pursue a higher-level degree, or take a break year to figure out what you want to do.

Yeah, I know, the problem is that I studied in Brasilia, but my family live in a city in the interior where there isn't much opportunity of jobs in my field, so if I decide to stay in Brasilia and look for a job, my parents would have to pay to sustain me there until I find one and there are two problems with that: 1) the cost of living there is quite high and 2) we are not in a great period to find jobs, so I don't know how long it would take, i'd basically stay there by myself doing nothing but looking for a job possibly spending much more money than I would if I stayed with my parents, but if I stay it would be even harder to find a job.

I have thought about looking for a foreign exchange program which would be interesting to me since despite having a degree in International Relation, I have almost no experience abroad, but that can be very expensive.

I wish I had some advice for you, but I don't know enough about your situation and the Brazilian economy to give any useful advice.

I have thought about looking for a foreign exchange program which would be interesting to me since despite having a degree in International Relation, I have almost no experience abroad, but that can be very expensive.

I think going abroad would be good if you could find a way to afford it. There are often scholarship opportunities for studying abroad if you want to look into those...they might help defray some of your expenses.
