Job Search Update
It’s time for an update on my job search. As a recent grad, I face the near daunting task of finding out what my next move will be. I have to tell you, it’s pretty scary and it keeps me up at night! This morning I woke up with a scary feeling in my gut. What happens after I land the job? What if I can’t do what my employers ask for? Argh…you get my point. Well, apart from those anxieties, I am anxious about finding a job.
I interviewed for an internship last week and got it. Want to hear/read something funny? I thought I was interviewing for a position in my file since the job was advertised in my school’s career works as so. More than 3/4 of the way through the job interview, the interviewer asked me why I was interested in a marketing product management position instead of supply chain? The question definitely caught me by surprise! I said in my head what??? And promptly, answered my degree had many applications. At school, I learned how to learn and solve problems, which can be applied in any field. I was offered a 10 week internship, $15/hour, 40 hours a week. I turned it down. (Read below)
A couple weeks ago, I decided to contact the company that offered me a very good position last year. I had an interview with them last week, and I am waiting their offer. Last year, they offered me a very competitive salary with good benefits. Let’s see what happens.
I, also, sat down with the VP of a company I consulted with this semester. We had lunch, and he’s interested in me joining his team. I have an interview Tuesday with four of his managers.
So, that’s my status right now. I am basically waiting, and I am such an impatient person. I just want to know!!! I am probably going to be writing a post soon comparing both companies.
On another note, we are moving out this weekend, so I have to pack.
How’s everybody doing?
