My first solid month on the job search is drawing to a close. I’ve had a few opportunities come my way, but nothing truly relevant to the career path I’d like to set out on, so I’ve kept looking. I’m fortunate enough that I don’t need to settle for the first thing that comes my way in order to put food in my mouth and a roof over my head, and you can bet I thank my lucky stars that’s the case every day.
Most of my peers who chose not to immediately seek an advanced degree after college are in similar situations. We’re working part-time jobs to have some income and something to do, but mostly we’re all trying to find work in our respective fields. We’re sharing notes on the job search, looking out for opportunities one another and celebrating each of our individual successes. It’s certainly nice to have a support group.
