“Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” by Judy Blume is one of my favorite childhood books. When I was 10 years old, I strongly identified with Margaret’s issues and problems. Today, I find myself in a similar situation where I’m seeking a sense of direction. So, “Are you there God? It’s me, Sam and I’m looking for a job.”
It’s 7:42 p.m. and I’m sitting alone at a cubicle procrastinating and wondering about the next few months. Perhaps, I’m really scared about where I will be after graduation. I had originally planned to spend my last semester in New York City, However due to other circumstances I could not finish my minor in time. As a result, I’ve had to slowly let that dream go. It sucks but I guess the universe or God has some other plan for me. I’m slowly coming to terms with the idea of still being in Syracuse next semester. I’m happy I have friends here who will make it all okay. After all, we only get one shot at this whole college thing.
(takes deep breath)
So what do I do now? It’s October and that means that I have got to get my life together. This means that I must reorganize my life by setting a whole new plan into action. Starting now with this blog post. First, I pledge to blog twice a month. Second, I plan to get my resume and business cards ready for job hunting before I go home for Thanksgiving break. Third, I am looking into conducting informational interviews during Thanksgiving break. Forth, I am going to actively search for a local spring internship.
This Friday I am planning on handing in my resume to Newhouse’s CDC for a review and I’m also planning on figuring on what writing samples to use for my job and internship search. I am also going to attempt to figure out a timeline for applying to spring internships and postgraduate programs at companies such as Burson Marsteller and Viacom.
