It is getting real!

Posted on: 02 March 2020 BY: EAmaral


As a senior in college I am starting to worry or think about what I want to do with my degree after I graduate. I still have one more semester to go but it seems like it going to go fast and without I know it I will be graduating. It is just intimidating to think about applying for jobs and move in back with my parents again. I guess this is a normal feeling, after all I am going to walk into a phase in my life with more responsibilities awaiting. But I like having responsibilities to do things so I guess I am just worry about weather I will get a job either it is sooner or later. I am sure other senior students feel the same way I do. This of course doesn’t stop me from dream big or wanting decent job, but I am aware of the zero experience that I have, and I am grateful of the experience that I had gain from my internship last summer. I am planning to get more experience through doing internship this summer and hopefully it will help me get more experiences and also broaden my network. But for now the plan is to focus on my unfinish semester and just optimistic!
