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!
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.)
