About Me:

My name is Steph, and I am a senior Marketing major with a Communication Studies minor. Since this is my last year at Butler, my main goal is to enjoy every moment that I have left, while doing as much as humanly possible. I am a marketing analyst at the Butler Business Accelerator, a Speakers Lab tutor, and a Butler blogger (obviously). I also am an Alpha Phi, the President of the Butler University Student Foundation, a member of Alpha Kappa Psi (a professional business fraternity), and a member of the Butler American Marketing Association. In the small amount of free time that I do have, I love crafting, watching large amounts of television, and enjoying my favorite comfort foods, like sweet tea.

It’s official…I have a big girl job!

Every college senior’s biggest fear is that they will graduate from college and not be able to find a job.  No matter how much you prepare for the real world, finding a job is pretty tough out there right now, especially for those of us that only have internships and part-time jobs under our belts.  So whenever people ask us about our plans for the future…we have a quick freak out on the inside…as we imagine what our lives could become if we never found a job.  For me, I always imagined moving home and crafting everything in my parents house, which I was kind of alright with…but I’m sure my parents would get tired of VERY quickly.

Don’t worry about my life becoming extremely sad and lazy though..because I officially have a post-grad job!

EXCITEMENT!!!

For the past few months, I have been applying for every job opportunity that was available…which really isn’t many, considering that it is December, and I won’t be able to start a job until at least May.  The application process for the job that I accepted was almost two months long, and I was fortunate enough to be one of the finalists selected.  So, this means that after graduation, I will be an Orr Fellow at BidPal Network, a company in Indianapolis.  I could not be more excited for this new chapter in my life, and that I will have the chance to stay in Indy following graduation.  I really do love the city, and I hope that I will actually have time to explore it when I’m not overcommited on campus anymore.  Stay tuned over the next few months though, as I give you all the perspective of college life from someone who is officially employed.  (Hopefully…it isn’t too different…I don’t want to get too lazy during spring semester.)

    Congratulations!

    BidPal Network is doing incredible things, so that’s fantastic that you got a job there. Your perspective will be really helpful for other college students to read as you finish up your senior year.

    What all was involved in the two-month application and approval process for the fellowship?

  2. […] Wish me luck. (And congratulations to Steph with her wonderful news!) […]

    I think there were 2 key things you wrote in your article that show you were planning for the future to make sure you got a job after college. The first is internships and part time jobs. Both of these give you real life experience and show employers that you are ready for work in the “real world”. The second is that you applied for everything possible. It is important to apply for jobs even if they are a long shot, because you never know and every interview you complete gives you more experience with the interview process. Making you that much more comfortable for the next one. Congrats!
