This is a great question. The resources Skidmore offeres have been unbelievably helpful. Since the start of this year I have frequented the Career Services office. Career Services helps with everything from editing your resume to getting you in touch with alumni who are currently in the field you are interested in. I had my resume completed, my linked in created, and contacted heaps of alumni. I also received great tips for interviewing; thanks to those I was extremely confident during my last interview.
So I am sure you all have gotten the idea that I have been thinking up a plan for what I will do after I graduate. When I started blogging I was somewhat sure that I would fly off to Australia immediately after accepting my diploma. I would’ve speant a year or two there learning more about myself and life and enjoying the sun, kangaroos, and koalas. Plans have changed. Who know if this will be the first time this happens. But as of now I decided I want to work in youth development directly after I graduate. I have been in touch with some awesome people with the help of my Skidmore connections and alumni network. Hopefully something comes of it. I hope to make a difference and develop a tighter grip on me and life and such and then from there I will apply to grad school….and maybe Australia for a year before that. An important thing I am learning is that it seems nearly impossible to make a “5 year plan”; life happens and thins change including yourself. Sometimes going with the flow a bit is okay.
