Thank Goodness for PRSA

So I am graduating in two weeks. I don’t want to talk about it. It is scary and really stressful. Honestly, I don’t recommend it. Okay, that was a bit of a joke but seriously, with no car, job, funds, or home to my name, I’m feeling the heat. My parents so kindly told me I am not allowed to come home after graduation. Now, I know that sounds harsh but they mean well. They want me to make it in the world and to apply myself. They want me to get out there and try, and if I fail then they’ll be there, but until then, I am basically screwed.
So the job hunt ensued. I can’t tell you how many job applications I have turned in. I wish there was a job that paid me to fill out job applications because I am now highly qualified for it. Job hunting is frustrating, especially in such a competitive field such as journalism and public relations. Getting responses whether it be yes OR no is difficult as well, but I must say that PRSA.org has really been helpful to me.
PRSA.org is a website devoted to PR and they have a section where they post jobs related to the media field. I spent hours on this site and I can honestly say that i applied to every job that I was qualified for. Yes, I went through all 300 and some odd listings in my desired fields and applied.
Here’s hoping I get a job! Thanks PRSA for your help!
