As you may or may not already know, I recently graduated from college. I have a temporary job at Goodwill, but I’m still directionless.
It’s hard knowing what I want but not knowing how to get there. I’ve been questioning pretty much everything since graduation. But deep down, I can’t be shaken from what I want. Journalism feels so right that, frankly, I don’t know what else I want to do with my life – besides write and blog, of course.
So I’m trying to focus on that right now, but it’s hard, because I haven’t had any jobs before starting at Goodwill in November. What kind of jobs can I get that will eventually lead to journalism? That seems like it would involve writing of some sort, but I haven’t been able to get any of the jobs I find, let alone qualify for them.
At this point, I think what it really comes down to is someone giving me a chance. But I’ll probably have to have more experience than Goodwill. I just don’t know where I can get it. And I’d rather not wait, because ABC News isn’t going to knock on my door. I have to kick down theirs.
