So I'm back in Boston and with a month left until graduation from one of the most international business schools in the world. Right now my biggest concerns revolve around what is in store for me after the next six weeks. Graduation is literally around the corner and as much as I try to keep myself calm and really keep my head about myself, I find it's really hard to not feel frustrated as I find myself filling out application after application trying to find a job.
So what's a girl to do? Especially one that has a lot of interning experience, a lot of random experience, a year old bachelor's degree and soon-to-be fresh marketing degree?
Needless to say I pray about it all the time, asking God for guidance and peace of mind, but I'm terrified out of mind about what's next. I know. I know. That's so counterintuitive because faith and fear cannot operate in the same space, but I'm human. Truth of the matter is I'm going to end up back at home at 23 with my parents (which is fine, temporarily), but I'm clueless as to what it is I'm supposed to be doing.
I have the faith that I will land something that is exactly what I'll love eventually. A job in creative brand marketing that allows me to also have the hands-on experience, gets me out in people's faces and touches a little bit into the public relations field along with some event planning. I know complicated dreams, but I think it's doable.
I guess I wrote this post really just to vent, because the reality is job searching is not easy for anyone. It's a very tedious job in itself. But with the student loan cloud getting ready to hover over my life, I feel it's completely necessary to be on top of the ball and get in the game. I've never been a girl with out a plan...
But it seems right now, I'm the girl who's plan is just going with the wind. We'll see how this goes.
