If you’ve been reading Peach in the City for the past week or so, you know that I graduated from college this May and have been essentially unemployed since. I’m not actually unemployed. I do have a full time job, I took it mostly to structure my time and bring in a little money while I look for more interesting work.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the job search, the endless cover letters, the constant resume edits, asking for references, and putting together an application. By the time you’ve done this, you’re sure you’re the perfect fit for the position! Only, more often than not, to hear back two months or so later that the position is no longer available. There are better qualified candidates, or people with connections, or just too many applicants to take every single one seriously. It’s hard to not get discouraged. When I get discouraged, I like to remind myself of some things to be happy about and grateful for.
I know we’re going to be okay.
What keeps you from getting down?
