Cautiously Hopeful

Some of you are aware that I'm looking for new employment, it was my New Year's Resolution. And for some of you who live in Michigan, or are aware of how dire the economy has been in this mid-western state, you know just how difficult it is to find a good job, a job you like, and a job that pays a respectful salary to compensate for your education level and work experience. Part of the reason why I went back to college to obtain my Master's degree in Communication was to strengthen my resume and add professional and academic credibility to a discipline that I have been a part of for the better part of a decade.

Right now I find myself in the awesome position of interviewing with two companies, both are very different from the other, but they both present great opportunities for my career that my current place of employment will never, ever offer to me. I've been a little depressed in the past few months regarding my career path and my future, but the past 10 days have been exciting with two interviews, and a call back thus far from my preferred future employer which I will interview with later this afternoon. By this time next week, I will know my future. I will either have a brand new job and a renewed outlook on life, be proud of myself, as well as a boost to my confidence. Or I will just grab my boot straps harder and continue the search while working hard to keep my self-esteem level high. Needless to say, I prefer the former scenario.

Wish me luck please, I'll keep you posted! xoxo
