What campus resources, learned skills, or advice received during college prepared you most professionally?
How has your extracurricular or leadership experience impacted your career path?
What was the biggest challenge you faced during the job-search process and how did you overcome that?
Letting myself follow my gut with the opportunities I faced. Don’t try to force anything or assume that it will get better. If you are wishing things were a bit different about a certain job before you accept, it’s a good sign that it’s not a good fit. Make the best of the opportunity you are given and don’t be a quitter. I have seen a lot of people quit my company and the grass was almost never greener on the other side. Its a huge adjustment moving to a full-time job, but try to get used to the change. It takes real grit and character to grind yourself to a successful place; no matter what opportunity. Trying changing yourself before changing your job.
