This week has been such a roller-coaster of ups and downs. Multiple interviews, rejection, and happy hour at Monsoon (you be the judge of the ups and the downs).
But, ladies and gentlemen, I have big news: Today…I landed a job. A real job!!
I stayed in LA to see if I could make it. Thank the good Lord that everything seems to be falling into place. And rather quickly at that. After graduation, I gave myself a month-long grace period to pull myself together and maybe enjoy whatever “summer” I had left. I was expecting pure turmoil in these months – utter anxiety about the unknown future ahead of me. In this economy, the job market is full of fierce competition and I thought this one month period would turn into two months and then to three. Turns out I have found an awesome place to live (signing the contract tomorrow at 1!), I have two amazing roommates and cat, and now I have a job!!! God is good. I’m going to be getting paid peanuts for the amount of work and devotion this job will require, but God is GOOD. I have a job.
After getting rejected from what seemed like the perfect job at CAA, I was so motivated to get myself out there. I discovered video resumes and contemplated making my own but ended up checking out some REALLY BAD resumes on Youtube. If you want a good laugh or maybe an ego boost, please look into this. I recommend this one. And this one. At least you’re not these people.
On that note, that’s it for me. I’m sleeping well tonight!
One more thing:
…just so you know.
