Our Action Learning Project is underway, and my team met with our client, ISP, once again this morning to gear up for our second-to-last project. It’s been really helpful to have a corporate perspective on the work we present and have projects from the corporate world. It enables us to have a preview of what we may be doing once out of school and also gain perspective into such a diverse industry.
Those final steps are only a few months away! The atmosphere of the MA classrooms is significantly different this semester as opposed to last. Far more aware of the looming May graduation and subsequent entry into the real world, the MAs have settled in a bit more and are very obsessed about job searching. Anxious, nervous, excited are all emotions that seem to reflect my feelings towards the final leave of school and the world of academia for the “real world.”
My job search has narrowed and with the help of the Career Management Center, I’ve been able to reach out and really pursue what I want to do. I’m slowly reaching out more and more to agencies and beginning to narrow down on locations and cities that I’m interested in.
For now I look forward to my afternoons when I have a chance to relax after class, write my thank-you cards, and review my resume to add in all my experiences over the past five months. And of course, get ready for the Marketing Summit that starts this Thursday!
