The Last Semester: Heading Into The Real World

Applying for full-time jobs is harder than it looks.

The Last Semester: Heading Into The Real World

As a second semester senior in college, who is about to graduate in May of 2020, it's time to apply for full-time jobs and it's honestly frightening. For the longest time, people have told me that applying for full-time jobs is about networking and getting to know people. It couldn't be anymore true.

As a major introvert, networking is a concept that frightens me. Of course, I love meeting new people and learning more about my field. However, I am the one of the many who enjoys applying myself through the internet. Applying for jobs couldn't be anymore easier with Indeed, Ziprecruiter, and even LinkedIn. It's quick, easy, and you can easily upload your resume and cover letter.

Here's the hard part: showing who you really are and waiting for a response. You can only show your personality so much through typed words and a resume. Based off of my experience in currently applying for jobs, I tried to descriptively type how enthusiastically I want the job and how I will apply myself through my past experiences and skills that I've gained, through my experiences.

So far, I've had no luck. But although there is still time, I am hopeful that something will come about. For those who are also currently applying, be patient. That is one of the major components that I've learned through this application process. Patience will always be the number one priority, as companies won't respond right away. After some time, email them to show them that you're eager to work for them! Some will respond, some won't. It's all in the process.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
