In case you've missed my multiple stressed, tearful posts... I'm getting my MBA.
Just waiting for your applause. I know, I'm amazing.
Just kidding. What I am is exhausted. Always, always exhausted. I never knew evaluating the longevity of Costco's stock options would put me in a near-coma, but here we are.
Whenever I meet up with someone and brag about my academic achievements, the inevitable question arises... "So, what are you going to do with your degree?"
Apparently, "enjoy sleeping through the night again" isn't an acceptable answer. People want a full on career analysis.
Now, I've already gotten a new role and duties in my current job, so I feel quite set. But if any of my fellow December grads are having trouble fielding this question, allow me to help. I present: a bunch of nonsense jobs that are yours to lie about. None of these jobs are real. I made them all up over my lunch break. But if you genuinely don't know what your post-grad plans hold, or your answers just aren't enough for whoever happened to ask, here you are. Lie away!
Badass women are everywhere in history, tearing down social structures the way Jonathan Scott tears down non-load bearing walls on “Property Brothers.” Three of these amazing history heroines are featured in “Hidden Figures” and if you haven’t seen it, then you and I aren’t making any late night Taco Bell runs until you do. It’s pretty incredible, these women are so smart it blows my mind straight out of orbit.
Also, if you really think about it, it really is just a movie about men who were too stubborn to ask for directions to space.
Seriously, go see the movie. You’ll wanna be an engineer after it, so you can be just like Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Vaughan. I know I do.
If you’re itching to learn more about wonderful women renegades, I’m here to help! And so are fabulous sites like this, updated weekly.
Under the special skills list on my resume, I do my best to highlight that I’m a jack of all trades and a master of fun. I know basic programming, AP-style writing, graphic design, and mildly hilarious stand up comedy routines.
But what about those non-work related skills? The adult-y ones. The ones you call your mom up to brag about?
