Beauty of Versatility

April 1st, 2014 by cmiceli763

Guess what, guys? It’s that time of year- again! Summer internships await. Ah the sweet feeling of boosting your resume. So let’s get right to it. I’m going to focus on the beauty of going outside of your comfort zone in the job world.  

So, because I’m a PR major I’m just going to harp on that a bit. Currently, I’m doing my fourth internship (technically a part-time job) at a 3D rapid prototyping/engineering firm, R&D Technologies. It’s a great marketing position, the only one in the company, and I’m granted complete creative flow. I got the position by taking a walk through the School of Engineering, Computing, and Construction Management Career Fair. I was actually snapchatting a photo of the 3D printer they had on their table when the President of the company encouraged me to send my resume for a marketing position. See how that kind of just fell in my lap? All it took was the slightest bit of interest and I got it!

Rediscovering the Passion

November 4th, 2013 by cmiceli763

As the semester progresses, exams become weekly events and studying consumes your life, and it’s easy to lose focus on your endgame. You’re so caught up in just making it through your homework that you forget why you’re doing it. It’s times like these that rediscovering passion for your major will push you through and give you hope.  Here’s how:

Talk to someone about it – This is so simple but entirely effective. Have a conversation with someone about your major and your career goals. Whether it’s a friend, classmate, second cousin twice removed, just talking about your dreams will remind you how hard you have to work towards them.

Look up internships and jobs – even if you don’t want one. Seeing what’s out there, remembering that one day you’re going to be in one of these awesome positions! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, my friends. You may even come across one that you do end up wanting, not a bad side effect.
