39 Days after graduation
Day 129 of Career Search
What I really love about this is that I started refining my search again. There was a month there toward the end of the semester when I was applying for basically anything I could get my hands on. As well as cold contacting firms that only partially met what I wanted in a firm. I decided to stop being picky because I was quickly realizing that being picky wasn’t going to help me in my career search. Just because you start out at a place doing a specific kind of work doesn’t mean you’re stuck in that same position for eternity. Well just last week I said screw it, I’m applying for only the positions I know I’ll love and at places I feel have the same ethics I do. Et voila! Last Friday happened.
I could not be happier about this; this firm has everything I could want; small in size, great location, great clients and range of clients. In short everything I was hoping for. Just further proof that if you put positive thoughts out there and really apply yourself to the activity you can get what you want. Maybe, just maybe if you don’t get what you “want” you’ll get what you need. (Sorry I couldn’t help myself)
Keep on keeping on guys, don’t get disheartened every time you send out a resume or hand off a business card you are presenting yourself to the world. The world isn’t a cruel place by nature, you will get what you want and deserve I promise!
