Fellow blog babes who are just starting out, we’re in this together. I started my blog on the cusp of graduating college in a town where I had spent 4 years of my life. Come graduation time, I realized that all of my creative contacts would stay in Gainesville while I would move hundreds of miles away to Miami.
During the first month of living in Miami, I was struggling with everything from finding the right grocery store to blog-related issues like finding a community and decent photographer.
In the following, I’m going to tell you about how I found an awesome photographer for FREE! If you’re trying to ball on a budget like I am, this is the only viable option. Although I needed a cost-conscious photographer, I also looked for photographers that would charge per shoot, so I’ll talk about that too.
Having a 9-5 makes the day go by faster than ever. I used to have time to find a nook and settle down with a good book, but those days are gone. Sure, I can read on the weekends, but leaving a story unread for five days then picking it back up just lessens the reading experience.
When I started to blog, I wanted to do as much research as I could on business building and succeeding in my side hustle. From this desire, I stumbled upon *angel’s chorus * podcasts. I literally listen to podcasts more than music nowadays. I could be cleaning, cooking or getting ready in the morning and learning at the same damn time. How’s that for multitasking?
So, after reading your resume about 26 times and nervously holding off on pressing send, you finally do it. You got the interview. Now you’re probably wondering about things like, what do I say? What will I wear? Will they like me? Omg, what if they hate my personality?
Take a deep breath and repeat after me, “I AM THE FUCKING SHIT. I AM THE BEST. I AM GOING TO MAKE THIS INTERVIEW MY BITCH.”
After part I, you should be locked and loaded on your cover letter and resume skills. To continue, we now need to search for the perfect job! With the internet, we definitely have it easier than our parents. Although we have the speed of the internet on our side, sifting through the millions of job postings is still difficult. That’s why I’m here to tell you about my tips and tricks about searching and applying for jobs. This is exactly how I found my PR job and hopefully, you’ll find something you love doing as well!
Let’s face it, no matter how many job fairs you attend or job opportunity emails you receive from your college dean, finding a job is still a hard task. The panic to get a job didn’t hit me until the 2 months before my graduation. I had applied to jobs before, but the options were slim and no opening motivated me enough to go all in. In July, I was in full panic mode and gave it everything I got to find a job that I was passionate about. Thankfully, it worked out and now I have a job that I could not be more excited to start.
