Rough Monday.

A week and a half ago, I interviewed for a corporate job I really wanted with a company I really like (and enjoy working for currently as a sales associate in a retail store). I was really excited and felt really at home on campus and with all of the people I met and spoke with. 

I didn't get the job. 

I'm upset. Really upset. I'm upset because I did not (and do not) want to leave Madison, I really want to remain a part of this company, and I really thought I could make a difference there. Now I don't know where I will go and what I will do. Everyone keeps saying that everything happens for a reason, but I wish that reason would reveal itself. I feel like the typical cliche college grad: graduating without a business/nursing/medical degree (aka with a useless degree) and doomed to live at home with my parents and work a minimum wage job for the rest of my life. 

So, if anyone's hiring, let me know. I've been told I'd do great things as a personal shopper! (ha ha ha)

Well I'm not going to give you a cliche but I will tell you the sad blunt truth: That this is not uncommon and might even happen again. But you shouldn't get discouraged! Join LinkedIn and network like crazy. Take every interview opportunity to brush up on skills! I hope you find and get your dream job. I'm not where I want to be in my career but I have realized that it will take time. I wish you the best :)
