At first, you wanted to be a vet. But that one class turned you off, actually, that one teacher.
So, you switched to “communications.” The classes were easier it seemed and everything made sense.
It was all pretty much common sense and you did well. You studied Facebook (“New Technology and Communications 101″) and you were already an expert in Facebook. Whoohooo. You would have aced “Texting” but that is not a class, yet.
You graduated in late May and just had to take some time off. You and some buddies did a cross country road trip. You are still pissed that your parents would not pay for the European trip you reallyreallyreally wanted as a graduation present. After all: A college graduate.
You are searching for those “communications” jobs. Your marketing professor said that you could expect a starting salary in the 60’s, minimum. But those “jobs, ” at least the open jobs, want a lot more experience, it looks like. But still. You are a college graduate. Luckily, your parents paid for college, all you have is a five-figure credit card bill. You don’t mind living in the basement in your old room, for now.
You are holding out for a communications jobs with an international company (you still want to see Eurupe), and preferably one that is not associated with the oil industry. You want to make a difference.
So, there you sit, sending out resume after resume to companies you know nothing about, with big jobs that you know you cannot do, but hoping some HR manager somewhere will recognize just how good you have gotten at Facebook.
If she could only see how fast you can text.
But Johnny, stay cool. Hey, did you see the latest US WEEKLY?
