Finding a job. What does that mean? I am writing to you now at point B, where I have decided, if possible, my first job out of college will be copywriting at an advertising firm. How I got to point B from point A is probably far off in the distance if you, the reader, truly are a prospective student, but nonetheless, perhaps you will remember this blog post when you find yourself in need of solace. I have no idea what the larger picture of my career is and honestly, I’m not sure if anyone does. Some people seem to head out on one path and do it forever, but I feel like that world has changed. And it’s pretty scary. Knowing you can do pretty much anything you want to do from Colby if you actually want to do it might be possible is actually constricting. Too much choice is paralyzing and exhausting.
After many flips and flops, I have arrived at what I want next. The journey from point A has been littered with ideas of finance, start-ups, and even letting my imagination run wild the hard sciences and tech world. What does that all mean? The second you open the door to one world you find yourself in a world filled with a thousand more doors. You keep opening doors and saying “Yes, please!” or “ehhhh, no thanks…” You’ll find more no thanks on both sides of the equation, but somewhere down the line you’ll figure it out. I know I have. I think…maybe not. We’ll see.
