What’s the next step?

Posted on

I feel like this is the ongoing question that just never seems to end… “What do you want to do after you’re done with school?”

If I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me that question i’d be… well let’s just stay i’d have a lot more money than I do right now, being a broke college student and all.

Even though friends, family and people I work with always ask me the same variations13240735_10209524989991959_5844152029225923527_n of questions, it keeps the process and next step fresh in my head. I’m always thinking about it. I’m always wondering and exploring what kind of fields I might be interested in.

Something I have found is that because I decided to pursue both my degrees in business I have the opportunity to unlock so many different doors. The hard part is finding an industry I can thrive in.

This is where the services and resources of Saint Martin’s can really help! As student’s we are all invited to connect with Ann Adams and Career Services. First of all, she is one kick-butt lady who is hard working and motivational and not to mention A GREAT person to go to for help with resume building.

As a soon to be graduating (again) grad student it is now my turn to utilize the resources that this campus has to offer and she is one of them.

Now, this does not mean that all job are to be found through the help of career services. I encourage you all to also connect with your teachers within your perspective majors. Teachers within your program are great resources since almost all teachers have experience within their field along with contacts who they met along the way.

You never know, those contacts that your teachers have may be looking for some young blood to join their team.

So in conclusion for all of those who ask, over the next several months I plan to work closely with Career Services, perfecting my resume, getting my face out there, apply for jobs and reaching out to my current and previous professors and making new connections. In the business world it’s all about who you know and how far you are willing to go to get it!

Stay tuned to see what happens next!

love, Sarah.
