This week has been full of exciting career-related events. I went to a resume bootcamp on Monday and completely revamped my resume. It’s pretty sharp now! Also, I went to a meet and greet with a big company around here and met some important people. And, I killed a test in one of my hardest classes.
But the big news is that I had an interview today for the company that I REALLY want to work for. I was so nervous because I’ve never really been to a corporate interview where everyone is all black suit and heels (if applicable). But, it went so well! There were two women interviewing me. They asked me a ton of questions and I felt like my answers were on point. I asked them questions too and felt completely relaxed. I’m really hoping to hear back from them!
Also, I had my big presentation for one of my classes and that went way better than expected. I HATE public speaking, but I managed to keep my nerves at bay. After class my professor even pulled me aside and said she loved my topic and that I did great. I feel pretty accomplished today and it’s only midday.
I’m so glad that I decided to take a different career path over a year ago; I was in nursing school and dreaded my future job. Sometimes it’s hard to make big decisions like that. You don’t want to let down your family or friends and it’s hard to shake the feeling that you’re giving up on something. But sometimes if you find yourself in the wrong story, you just have to leave and start a new one.
P.S. I’m still doing the photo challenge and I will update on that this weekend. I ordered a white balance cap last week and, stupid me, I ordered the wrong size!
