You Can Find A Job In Your Field

All right, kids. It’s been a year full of fantastic happenings, but it hasn’t come without its challenges. I began as a senior overloaded with far too much to do and not enough hours in which to do it. I can finally say that it has paid off. I kept a pattern of holding down three jobs to support myself and all of my experiences have led me here. Sharing this. In a blog post. With you.

I’ve found that the one thing that really irritates me is when people say you won’t find a job in your field. The name of the game is to try to scare you into choosing a “better” major. Pfft. The thing about finding a job in your chosen field is that, sometimes, you have to think outside of the box a little bit in order to work out where there are jobs that hire people with your educational background.

Yes, it is going to be hard. Yes, you may or may not spend nights wondering if you’ll be able to actually use your degree for its intended purpose, but I promise you that perseverance and being open-minded will get you into a great job that makes you happy to get up every day. People might criticize me for being too optimistic, but I also recognize that things don’t happen overnight. It took one of my very best friends nearly a year to find a job in her field. She now teaches history at a high school in South Carolina. Always be on the lookout for new experiences and just take every experience for what it is: a new skill and something else to polish your resume with. As for me, I’ve found a job where I edit other people’s articles for a social content platform, and let me tell you something: they’re all wicked talented.

Laters,

Noelle
