finally landed my first interview. Well, actually, that's not really
true. I have been on many interviews for part-time jobs. This was my
first interview for a full-time job.
In less than two months, I will graduate from Arizona University. After a lot of back and
forth trying to decide on a major, I finally decided to double
major. I would study both political science and marketing.
These are not majors that usually go together. In
fact, most people thought I was crazy. But, after a lot of soul searching,
I decided to combine my two main interests: 1. politics and 2. getting a job!
Those are my two priorities. I thought that if I get degrees in these
two fields, I could cast a wide net when going job hunting.
And, that's what I'm trying to do now.
Since I don't know if I want to work in the public
or private sector, I've applied for jobs in both. In the public sector,
I could work for the government. Maybe one day, I could even be a speech
writer for the President! Okay, maybe I should shoot a little lower.
In the private sector, I could work for private organizations such as museums,
schools, or programs. Some of those are non-profit.
Or, I could work for a company. Everybody tells me
that that's where the money is. I haven't decided yet. I'm planning to apply
for a lot of jobs and will see what happens. What I want now is just to get
some job offers. Then, I can start being picky.
