Job hunting is one of the most anxiety-filled, stressful and tedious tasks ever. I constantly worry over each word in my cover letter, the order of my portfolio pieces, appealing to employers in every aspect of their job requirements. If you're lucky, you already have a job...if I'm lucky, you're someone I emailed about a job and decided to explore my blog. I've job-hunted before, don't get me wrong. However, this is real life we're talking about now. I'm not going home and looking for a job that will just pay for my gas while I live comfortably at home, I'm going to need an actual salary now. Is it too late to take back being an art major? It's true what they say...the pay's not the best. So you may be asking yourself "What's this girl's plan? She sounds pretty lost..." I am somewhat lost, but I've decided (unless other opportunities present themselves) to move to the great city of Austin. I loved being there last summer and it seems to have plenty of opportunities. Hopefully the family doesn't mind putting me up a few short weeks until I get my first huge paycheck (kidding) from the hopefully awesome job I will acquire (not kidding). If you made it this far, I commend you on putting up with my job hunting woes. Until next time, starving artist out!
