Hometown: Unionville, Conn.
Job wanted: Communications or public relations
I graduated from Bates College in May so I've been on the job search for a while. Over the summer I had a couple of unpaid internships and I had some projects throughout the fall and applied to over 200 jobs, most of which I didn't hear back from.
By November I was burnt out so I stopped looking. I got a part-time job in a restaurant but even that was tough. I'm living at home with my parents right now. I took all of November and December off from searching.
Come the New Year I was motivated again. My New Year's resolution was to hopefully find a job by the end of the year. I just got another unpaid internship through networking and I'm also doing freelance reporting.
