The 'Job Hunt Is A Job Itself' Is The Most Accurate Statement A College Senior Has Ever Heard

The hunt for my first job has begun.

The 'Job Hunt Is A Job Itself' Is The Most Accurate Statement A College Senior Has Ever Heard

f you've put out feelers, sent out emails and stayed on top of things... you're probably feeling great right about now. But for the others that are a little behind and worried about what they're going to do post-graduation, don't get too down on yourself.

I've been on the hunt for roughly two months now... way before my actual graduation ceremony. Let me tell you something...


Searching for a job has been more stressful than any project or exam I have ever worked on. The applications, the interviews, the follow-ups, the lack of replies, the questions... it's all new and unfamiliar to a 21-year-old college student.

Am I willing to move across the state? the nation? the world?

It's weird to think about living so far away from family and friends, and a college town you've grown to know and love. It's weird to think about being a full-time adult and not going to school for the first time in 17 years.

But, on the other hand, there's a whole new world that's opening up at your fingertips. Your first company, your first new city on your own, your first apartment... new friends and a new opportunity for love is all at your feet. There's nothing you can't reach for.

I'm a big believer in God doesn't give you anything that you can't handle. So whether the job hunt is driving you insane or you're deciding between two places, relax and know that God has a plan.

You will get a job. You will succeed. You will be fine.

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
