I haven’t posted in a while because when it rains it pours. Everything in life was amazing and I was going full speed, thinking and assuming and predicting I’d be working a full time job and spending my free time spreading my social butterfly wings.
But when does it ever play out how we want it to? So here I am, just me, myself and I. I’ve been rejected by more companies and organizations I can count for one reason, no experience.
College was tough for me. I couldn’t get myself to show up for class, let alone join a club or make honors or create a start-up app that revolutionized dorm food. My only experience is being a student-athlete and having one finance internship. I worked retail as I finished up my fifth year, which luckily I gained management and customer service experience but I’m really lacking in the whole office experience area. And that is costing me a whole lot of opportunities due to the fact that other candidates outweigh me in the proven experience, written on paper, can be vouched for by coworkers. *my dad says I’m smart*
Technically I’m not even qualified to flip burgers at mcdonalds. But I just keep showing up at office to office hoping my cute face and charming personality will persuade someone to take a chance on this post-grad chick who desperately needs to move out of her parents house and start her own life and create her own identity!!!
If anyone has similar situations, experience, advice, etc. I would absolutely love to hear it. The real world is not friendly to every creature but I want to be friends! SOS
