Lit Geek and the job market

17 Aug

Dearest readers…where have I been…what have I been up to? Three words: the job market. So things aren’t so terrible considering that I was a double English major who was always too busy to visit Career Development.

So for about two months I was livin’ la vida unemployed, and then all of the potential employers in my area decided that I was wonderful simultaneously.

First I began working with a financial management company as an office assistant of sorts. Unfortunately this was only part time, and I ended up pairing it with some freelance writing for a local online newspaper. Since then I have been offered two other jobs–one at a law firm and one with a print newspaper. Upon visiting the print newspaper’s office, I decided upon the law firm…I’m leaving it at that.

So I am using my English degree...just on a freelance basis.

SO currently I work full time at the law firm, writing some things, but mostly answering phones, taking messages and dealing with clients until I am better trained. On the side (aka at night and on the weekends) I still freelance for the online newspaper.

Although this is not entirely the dream career for me, I realize that I am not, by any means, doing terribly for a recent college grad. I was able to purchase (on my own!) a newer, more reliable vehicle. I now I have the money to go out with my friends on the weekend and actually afford drinks at the bar. Most importantly, I have the funds to pay for student loans. Huzzah!
