It’s the start of week five of spring term already. It’s unbelievable, to say the least. I’m about to launch head first into my public relations campaign for my final PR class, my first midterm for my business management class was last Thursday and I just threw a graduation cap decorating party on Saturday.
Where is the time going?
I can’t believe that I have just six short weeks until I finish my final term of college. I’ve been thinking a lot about how much is going to change and it’s frightening, but also exciting. I’ve been seriously considering and debating the exact things that I want to do to start off my professional career.
Choosing a job to start off with isn’t going to be an easy task, but I have a good idea about how to further my professional skills with any job that comes across my path. The first stage of stepping into the career world is the most important in my eyes. It’s where we can get our toes wet and decide the next big step.
I’ve been extremely interested in social media lately and my internship is helping me discover that I could have a fun time organizing and scheduling posts for a company that I share values with.
I’m heading up the social media plan for FOOD for Lane County’s Instagram and planning to launch a campaign featuring employees and long-term volunteers expressing what FFLC means to them. (Stay tuned.)
I’m also trying to finalize a written legacy for my social media position for Alpha Phi Omega because I want to leave a set of good practices for the next media position. Our current exec board wants to officially make the position a year-round vice president position, so I want to leave as much as I can in place. (Also stay tuned.)
Overall this term seems to be going by so quick, but also so slow. Graduation is quickly approaching and I want to get as much into my portfolio as possible without overdoing it. Let’s see how that goes.
