So as a senior in college, I am currently making some huge life decisions. I mean, these decisions affect where I’m going to be living and what I’m going to be doing with the rest of my life – and I’m making such decisions all within the next few months! Pretty scary…
Right now, I’m applying for jobs located in Indianapolis and Chicago. There are both pros and cons of living in these areas, which is why I’m applying for multiple positions in a number of different fields/industries.
I know that might seem all over the place..but as a Public Relations and Advertising major, what I’ve learned can be applied to a wide variety of positions. I just have to find a perfect fit for me! I would absolutely love to work in fashion/beauty PR one day, but I really can’t be that picky when searching for a job right out of college. For now, I’m focusing on researching Indianapolis and Chicago based PR firms.
This past Thursday was a pretty exciting day because I traveled to Chicago to attend a networking event for a large PR firm in Chicago! My parents are so sweet – they picked me up from school, then drove me to the event and spent the whole day in the city with me. I’m a pretty lucky girl 🙂
The networking event was a way for interested applicants to learn more about a position with the company. To anyone graduating this semester or still trying to figure out what you want to do with your degree, don’t get discouraged. Do some research and job searching on career websites like careerbuilder.com and indeed.com. You might be surprised to see some really cool jobs out there waiting for you to apply! Leave me a comment below with any career advice you have and want to share with me. I’d love to hear anything and everything. 🙂
