I am a girl (not named Stacey or Paige), and I studied PR at a school (not Syracuse), and I don't have a Tumblr with a massive amount of followers. I don't even tweet about "industry" stuff, if you can believe it! But somehow, I managed to get a great job in an awesome agency working for a high-profile client. It's not all about your background or your social media skills. Seriously, if you can tell someone that you have creative ideas and are a meticulous writer, they'll snatch you up because they need that to balance out all of the other Stacey-and-Paige stuff. Stacey and Paige might not be able to spell, so you could end up being a huge asset. So don't give up on that digital marketing job quite yet!
My friend forwarded me the email notification she got because my picture was the largest (cool!) and it said 21 of her 93 connections (roughly 23%) had changed jobs! I was bumped up from intern to full-time hire, though, so that can also be the case for some of these people. Either way, we're all in our early-to-mid-twenties, so it feels logical.
Worked at Victoria's Secret at home one summer, transferred to the store by college in the fall. A lot more pressure to get people to sign up for Angel cards. Got "pink eye" after three days, never to return.
"Concert-going sucks." - no one, ever (or so I thought)?
This is exactly what I needed to read today. This happened to me 6 months ago, and I'm currently at the tail end of an internship in what I ACTUALLY want to do. This gives me a glimmer of hope.
@myrna.minkoff Good lord Pilsen is the absolute best.
