Get a Clue.

This semester is over, I’m officially a senior and unlike a lot of my friends I’m not taking the super senior route but I’m actually shortening my stay in college.  Trust me this is not by choice but more of a feeling of obligation, check out my previous post Aaahh Freak Out! for more details.  So here I go, planning for the real world… the real grown up get my own job, house, insurance kinda world.  As I’ve mentioned before, I have a great internship in Charleston this summer with Byrdhouse PR and actually just acquired a waitressing job to earn some extra cash at the Swamp Fox restaurant located in the Francis Marion Hotel.  So things are going good on that end but I’m feeling really pressured to start looking for jobs and to start setting up interviews for the fall so that I have a job upon graduation.

With all these ideas buzzing around my head and my to-do list growing at a steady pace everyday, I can’t help but feel a little bit relieved when I wander across a new story on the Clue Wagon blog.  The most recent story is of Harold who sounds like he is failing miserably at job and home life.  While this may sound depressing you should check it out for yourself because author and former Human Resource executive, Kerry Sandberg Scott, ads just the right amount of humor and enthusiasm to the stories.  It will have you saying of  your worst interview “Hey, it wasn’t THAT bad”.

So if you too are a recent grad, an almost grad, or are just on the job hunt check out the Clue Wagon and even follow her on twitter (@ClueWagon) to take the edge off a little… in a healthy way that is.

Happy Searching!

  1. Thanks for the tip! As a recent grad myself, I need all the tips I can get to take the edge off! And congrats on the internship/job, good luck!

  2. Wow, thanks…and good for you for thinking ahead. Who knows what the job market will be like next year; it pays to plan ahead.

    It’s important to remember that although there are lots of candidates out there, some of them suck. There’s a job out there for you somewhere.

    Good luck!
