I am still seeking my perfect fit job-wise, but I am becoming an entrepreneur in the process.
I run an online arts and culture magazine, a site for business writing and marketing consulting, and a blog about new media. I'm also a personal trainer. These were all hobbies in school, and now I'm working at them harder than ever. I've started to realize that I like working for myself.
But applying to jobs is exhausting. I'll go hard for a few days, and then I sort of burn out. I just want to find someplace to use my writing skills. I'm open to anything; I didn't go for my master's with a specific profession in mind.
I've looked at adjunct teaching jobs, marketing positions, anything that involves writing. After exhausting all my contacts and sending out countless resumes, I had only a few interviews and nothing worked out.
I know you have to pay your dues, but I want to be able to be creative. I'm looking for that happiness in any industry -- at this point, it doesn't matter to me at all.
