I’ve officially applied to over thirty jobs. As ambitious as that sounds, I have to admit, it’s getting kind of depressing. My resume is circling the New York City area, being passed around, looked over, considered..and that’s as far as I’ve got so far. It’s a trip because there are so many opportunities out there, yet none that I’ve been able to capture yet. But I guess that’s part of the problem right? Sitting around waiting for opportunities to happen? It sounds cliche, but opportunities have to be made; opportunities have to be created–and I know that. Just like I also know I have a lot to offer, as many of my fellow un-employees probably know as well, so I’m getting a little tired of waiting for someone else to realize it too!
I know what I have the ability to accomplish, I know what dreams I want to make come true. Good things happen to those who go out and make good things happen–and I’m getting out there. So be on the look out, you’ll see me soon. I’m tired of sitting around waiting for someone to call and tell me “You’re hired!” So I’m gonna hire myself, create my own opportunities, and maybe one day it will be me sorting through the pile of resumes for people wanting the opportunity to be a part of something that I started when I wasn’t getting any opportunities of my own.
