After years of making the “right” decisions, a series of setbacks has made me question which of those choices were actually right for me.
As a j-school grad and freelance writer, one thing I’ve noticed is that journalism and networking are very similar.
When you tell people you’re a writer, one of the first things they always ask without fail is, “Do you blog?”
Growing up, words were like a second home to me. However, when I got older and decided to pursue writing as a real grown-up career, I lost something in the process.
Just being gainfully employed isn’t enough anymore. Young professionals need to have the full package and quite frankly, it’s exhausting.
Now that I’m past the one year point, I figured it would be as good a time as any to look back on my post-grad journey and see what I’ve learned since leaving Carleton.
It all started in a dorm room. I was a second-year journalism student and I was frustrated. I wanted to write but I learned quickly that my options were limited.
