I have an interview today with an impressive marketing firm in the St. Louis area and I can’t help but to have butterflies! I am thrilled to gain this opportunity with such a prestigious company. It has always been a career goal of mine to work in the downtown St. Louis area with a marketing or PR firm. It just sounds so exciting to handle different clients in different industries everyday. I believe it is a career someone could never become bored with.
While preparing for my interview I have been researching the company and it’s employees using not only the website but social networking sites as well. It is while I was looking through LinkedIn profiles, Facebook pages and Twitter I asked myself what it was like to search in the career field without these sites.
The job market is tough right now, that’s for sure, but we are so lucky to have these social networking tools to utilize and prepare us for an interview. Even if this job does not work out, I think the experience I have gained while preparing for this interview, will only help me in the future.

I haven’t been utilizing my blog nearly enough since finishing the class I initially had to make it for. Now that I am graduated from SIUE and in the process of searching for employment in my future career path I figured it was time to get back at it!
While in college, I never imagined how fast the four years would fly by. I remember I started off wanting to major in Business. After taking some courses I realized I needed a major with more focus on communication and interactions. That is when I decided to change to Mass Communications with a Speech Communication minor.
Along the way I realized the Speech Communication courses, especially those intended for Public Relations, were more up my ally. I immediately swapped my Mass Communications major to my minor and Speech Communication minor to my major. I decided to focus on Public Relations.
With all the changes I was making, I never imagined I could actually graduate in four years. Although it took me taking 12 credit hours over the summer before my senior year in college, I was able to surprise myself and do just that.
I miss college now that it is over, but I am excited for the new ventures to come. Now I am on the road to seeking employment and so far it has been quite difficult but I know if I continue to improve on myself and my skills, something will come along!
More to come soon!
