I have accepted a position at a really incredible agency in Kansas City and I couldn’t be more thrilled! It is a real internship too, where I have clients and other real things. These positions are extremely competitive, so I’m extra proud.
With that, I have three things to say.
1. Praise Jesus.
Praise Jesus because during this search I have become even more excited about my major and the world of communications. I love how public relations let’s me work to make a small idea something important– where I get to see what potential my clients have and then physically make it happen. I also love getting critically solve problems when there doesn’t seem to be much hope, much like what Jesus does with you and I. During the internship search I saw a lot of the gospel. It was fun.
Praise Jesus that this is over.
Praise Jesus because I get to move to Kansas City, which is something I’ve wanted to do for over a year. Now I get to check out if it’s a place I’d like to live after I graduate.
Praise Jesus for my friends and family who edited numerous essays and resumes, listened to me blabber about subjects they could care less about and rejoiced with me in the end.
2. Thank you to those people. I am so grateful.
3. I hate cover letters.
Yep. I’m saying this loud and clear… I HATE THEM.
This could bite me in the butt later in life, but truthfully I could care less. I really do not like writing cover letters. I hate having to professionally come up with a three to four paragraph essay about why someone should hire me. Truthfully, the dude also applying probably sounds quite similar to me. I just hate them. You can argue with me, I don’t care. I just don’t like it. Most applications involved a cover letter with something extra, which is why I made an origami dog.
Thankfully for this internship I didn’t have to write a cover letter! Instead I had to write an essay where I compared myself to a brand. I chose my shampoo. It worked, I guess.
I’m so releaved this process is over. Also extremely thankful, hard work really does pay off. Now to do this again in a few months for a real job, yucko.
