Post Grad Waiting Room

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.

  1. Is there any chance you can get something part-time as a Marketing Assistant? The writing part is shorter, but the skills will be beyond helpful as your continue to progress.


    • I’ve looked at marketing jobs, for sure. But, I narrowly avoided a scam, and I feel like most of the jobs I end up looking at require experience I don’t have or something I’m not familiar with. Plus, I hardly hear back from anything anyway.
