Mind and the Muscle

“I’m on the grind grand hustle, got the mind and the muscle” – T.I.

I need to get focused.

I am graduating in less than 5 months so let’s find LB a  J-O-B! ( we need to talk about this whole graduating thing in more detail—lately, it’s been making me a little sad—weird.  I’ll think/ write about that tomorrow)

I know you are not supposed to write about your job in Blog World…but what about the job search?

Oh, what’s that? I can do whatever I want because this is my blog? Is that what you said? That’s what I was thinking too.

And this is why I like you.

If you didn’t already know: I am a Senior majoring in Public Relations at Penn State. I also have two minors, Business and Human Development and Family studies. I am a pretty fabulous student and I love to write (note, the blog) I also have had several internships in the PR, marketing and entertainment fields.

I am open to working with/ for children, sports/athletics, fashion and non-profit organizations (of course).

Listen here!

I am no dummy. I understand that my first job is exactly that–my first job. Especially in the world of PR I probably won’t be staying with one company or organization my entire career, let’s hope not. You do want your girl, LB,  to make her way up in the world, right?

Where to live, where to live?

I’ve got a long list, I am very open to moving. My family lives in Connecticut, I go to school in Pennsylvania and I took a semester off in 2006 to work in Florida so ‘location, location, location’—doesn’t really matter to me. Just new, fun and different.

California: Complete opposite coast from where I grew-up, of course I would pick it.

Seattle, Washington: Trendy City. Trendy Girl. Perfect Match.

Oregon: Running and apparently breathtakingly beautiful.

Denver, Colorado: I HATE skiing, but I could totally snow tube. I wouldn’t even be ashamed to tell Coloradians that I am not a fan of skiing, there has to be more to do. I am sure you are like then ‘Why Denver?’ well, that would be because my dental hygienist told me I would like it there. So why not?! I mean, she sees me every 6 months she knows me very well. Hmmmmmmm. I told you I was very open about this job search!

Indianapolis, Indiana : Up and coming city, a lot of possibility for PR and sports. Love both. The Big Ten has a job fair there in March, which I most likely will attend.

Chicago, Illinois: Chi-Town baby.

New York City: I always thought I would end up there but my feelings on the matter aren’t as strong as they used to be. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE THE CITY, but I am not sure if the work I want to do will be there. There is only one way to find out.

Now I have to search, search, search. So now that you all know about this job search of mine I will have to update you and get by college graduating butt in gear.

Any comments, advice, suggestions or HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is greatly appreciated since most of you are working people 🙂  (like where to search, how to write an awesome cover letter—you know, you know!)

Yet another reason why I like you.
