Wow! The last few months have been some I will never forget. So much has occurred as of late that has shaped me and the direction of the rest of my life! Well, let's get down to it!
I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE! What an accomplishment! I was so excited to have the ability to graduate early while saving so much money on tuition! It was a difficult decision to graduate early. I mean, who really wants to give up a lifestyle of eating pasta, working on calculus equations you probably never will need again, and socializing. In all seriousness though, I love Penn State and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences so much, that it was a difficult decision. In the end, the advantages of saving thousands of dollars and not taking out any more student loans were to great! It wasn't until December that I filed for my intent to graduate, just two weeks before commencement. Because of this, I am a little late to the game looking for a job, but no worries.
I am hitting the pavement hard looking for a job in a field that I can become passionate about. Throughout college, I have been very interested in water resources and environmental management. I hope to continue in a field that combines my love for water, science, and people. There are several job openings that look interesting. Right now, it is just a matter of getting the applications out and waiting to hear back. I am excited to hear back from some of the positions, in particular GKY & Associates, Inc. and their Environmental Scientist position. As I continue the search, I will continue to update you on all the happenings on the job front. Hopefully some exciting news in the weeks to come! :-)
Follow my quirky thought processes, my fears, my triumphs as I begin to apply to jobs, co-ops, and graduate schools.
