Tired & Hopeful
As a Senior (I think) in college, there starts to be that impending doom of what lies beyond graduation. Some people may have it all figured out already, like my STEM sister, but then there is me. I have been bouncing around career ideas for as long as I can remember. If anyone knows me, I am a planner. And if I don’t have a plan- then the Great Freakout will happen and I start to question life and what I have to offer it.
It’s a fact, though, that I wanted to be in the entertainment industry ever since I was a kid. Like many of us, I wanted to be an actress. Then a director, then a producer, then a creative director. Now that graduation is this year and my mom keeps asking or any updates and even the slightest bit of hope that I have SOMETHING figured out, my guess is as good as hers. I have some sense of direction, right now its Movie Marketing, but knowing me I will change again in a few months.
As a double major in Business and Film, I am in two very competitive fields. With that being said, I know I need to get my foot in the door and start looking for more internships.
Earlier this year, I sat myself down and applied. I applied like crazy and to any and everything I even somewhat thought I was qualified for. Sure enough I got some calls back and am waiting to hear back from NBCUniversal as well as Paramount Pictures. Pray for me, it was hard for me to get everything right and submitted in time and the positions that have reached out are right in the field I want to be in: entertainment AND marketing.
I really hope this leads me somewhere. Though I am a planner, I somehow want this part of my life to not be planned and unfold itself as it comes. If you are reading, I will keep you updated. But for now, I am tired and hopeful.
