Oh my goshness! Haha! So as I stated before I was doing my very first internship at a promotional marketing agency downtown. I was here from the beginning of May till end of July…but on my last week I got pulled to the side, thanked for my hard work and got offered a position with the company! I was so thrilled and excited my response was “Oh my god! For real!? I’m gonna cry!” HAHAHA! I was so embarrassed! But I was so thrilled to get a job! I was already dreading the end of my time here because that meant going back to the zoo and working all weekend, and who likes to work weekends?! Not me…I’m more of a Monday through Friday type of gal! Anyways, I got offered a part-time position, 30 hours a week as an administrative assistant. They hope to have me on board full-time by the end of the year, very exciting! The only down fall of it all is my long CTA commute I have to get here. It takes me an hour and a half to get from my house to here, it sucks, but I am doing it! I’m so proud of myself, they told me that I was the first intern to get offered a position! How thrilling! I’m so thankful and happy to obtain an opportunity at this time! I still hope to obtain my place in a creative department of an ad agency, and I will continue to search. So far, life as a recent graduate with a bachelors has turned pretty swell!

Regular American Dream…

It’s almost been a month since I graduated, and I feel so anxious to do something with this “degree” already! I’ve been sending out my resume to people left and right and I’ve gotten to luck. Although I can’t work till after my internship is over, I would at least like to be given an interview and see where the chances go from there. I’m really aiming to obtain an opportunity that will allow me to start working August 1st…the Monday after my internship is over! Yes, I know, I’m quick, but I rather jump right into something than to wait around. I’ve been doing it my whole life, and I think it’s better this way. A lot of people took a break after high school to gather their thoughts and go to the “school of their dreams”, I didn’t! Even though I would have loved to take a break, I started college right away! I started my internship the day AFTER my graduation! No resting time from anything there. I just feel more confident this way. I stay on top of my game and I’m already used to the schedule. Now, the question on my mind today is…what in the world do recent graduates do!? I’m sitting here, emailing resumes and trying to find my first job, and I’m getting no luck! I really hope I don’t end up having to work my minimum wage job for another year because I’m going crazy there already! It’s not a bad job, but I dislike giving up my weekends…I just want to be a regular American with a 9-5 Monday through Friday job…Where are you at Uncle Sam!? Help me out?…
