I never thought I'd have two part-time jobs -- or that I'd spend half my day working from home.
I knew the job search would be rough. I started looking at the start of my senior year, and I tried every trick to differentiate myself. I replied to almost every job posting I saw, and I had a bunch of interviews with large companies from Wells Fargo to Enterprise Rent-a-Car.
I really did it all. After all my persistence, I was able to secure two part-time jobs I found on Craig's List a few weeks before I graduated.
Now, I telecommute 20 hours a week doing product sales for eFORCE, a tech services firm. I also work 25 hours a week as an account assistant for Christie Communications, a public relations and marketing agency.
I spend my mornings at home and my afternoons in the office, which is great. I've realized I don't want to sit at one desk all day, every day. With two jobs, I'm getting twice the experience -- and I'm never bored.
