I officially resigned from my internship this morning. The last month has been a trial run, and it helped me realize that the reason losing my job was the best thing to happen wasn’t so I could have that specific internship.
It was so I can figure out exactly what I want to do with my life.
I love social media but do I want a job in it? I love Public Relations but do I want to be an account executive full time? What is it that I want to do?
I now have the chance to figure out how to move forward in my life and my career. I have a basic idea of what I want to accomplish so next step is to try out new things.
I am taking a chance and not looking back. How often do you get the opportunity to check out different opportunities to cross off pros and cons of a field and a 40-hour work week in that specific job?
So instead of applying to full-time jobs, I am seeking out internships and part-time jobs with my freelance on the side. This is my life and this is me living it.
The next step will be a part-time internship with myImpact (And maybe an additional one depending on when I get the job description from a great company I reached out to last week). According to their website, myImpact.org is: an online platform for volunteers in national and community service programs. Our Twitter-based tool allows volunteers to record, share and track their impact. I had a great conversation with Chris Golden on Saturday and am looking forward to working with them!
In the meantime, I am helping my friends who are looking for a full-time job with their search. I’ve had recruiters and a PR firm reach out to me with open positions and if you sent me your resume already, it has been passed on. If you’re a company in the Washington, DC metro area (Or even outside the DC area) and you are hiring, you can contact me and I will pass the information on and get candidate resumes your way. If you are currently looking for a job, the same goes for you. I will do my best to help you out!
You can reach me at any of my links on the sidebar or e-mail me. Be sure to put “Seeking Candidates (Job) re: Blog” so I can sort through my emails faster and won’t miss yours! If you are not looking in the DC area, please be sure to put the location in the subject as well.
In other news…
I am also taking more pictures and I will eventually start selling my prints once I have 10-15 of them that I like. For now, you can check them out on Flickr. Here are a few of my most recent/favorite pictures.
