The Light Bulb

I may not have a 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. job in a stuffy office, but I love what I do.

I’ve always loved asking people questions and finding out what they’re really thinking. A lot can be hidden under a smile and even more can be uncovered through a song lyric. Volunteering as a writer for Vents Magazine http://www.ventsmagazine.com has been the highlight of my post graduation experience. Although the artist that I interview are relatively unknown, I feel as though we are old buddy’s once the interview is over and the answers are posted. I’ve always felt as if people in general like to talk to me. It must be my non-threatening smile. Maybe this is my talent, that something I’m incredibly good at. The sky is the limit when it comes to my career, but I may have just discovered my niche. 

Everyday is new chance to learn something new, do something fun, and just live. So I’m going to start living….<3

Face to Face: My interview

Today I was nervous. I first went on an interview with a company that contacted me last week saying they were interested in me, which was very surprising. Then I went to Zumba with my sister to get my workout on.

Interview

I felt like I did well selling myself for the position, but I have that “after test feeling”. The “after test feeling” or ATF for short is the feeling of achievement after taking a very hard test and later finding out that you didn’t do as well as you thought. I feel as though the interview went well, but I’ve felt that way after going on other interviews and later finding out that I did not get the job. I gave myself a mini pity party and now I’m thinking more positive and leaving this in God’s hands. I did my part, now it’s up to him on placing me where he wants me to be.

I have another interview scheduled next week that I’m really excited for. So wish me luck, pray, or do a happy dance as long as you send good juju my way.

 

My Resume

I know it’s been awhile but a recent conversation has sparked my interest to blog once again. I am currently looking for a full-time CAREER and I realized I have a great platform to market myself. So today I decided to post my resume on my blog for browsing employers or for someone who knows about an opportunity in the marketing/advertising field. My interests include entertainment and publication marketing, but I am open to all possibilities.
