The job search can be time consuming and overwhelming. Job seekers and career changers navigate this difficult process by writing excellent resumes, networking, and more.
I am Katarina Tolkmit, and I used to work as a fashion designer for a brand in Upper Austria over the last 14 Years.
Do you remember the first story you ever made up? I'm not talking about the first story you ever wrote. I'm talking about the one you remember at the very dark edges of your memories, the frayed inklings of a story that flutters. The one that's so far gone into your history that you have to really try hard to remember what the hell it was, as an adult. Of course, I'm assuming you're a writer, or some sort of a creative. But regardless, I think everybody creates as kids. That's how we learn, mimicking life we see around us. Boys wanting to be like dad mostly, and girls pretending they are mum. Or, making up some silly "once upon a story..." starts to your very own fairy tales, complete with dismembered or half naked dolls, who could do with a bath—a serious bath—and a proper meal (you can tell I'm not into dolls, right? But that's a story for another time).
Creative Writing. That's something, isn't it? To create. To write. But no, put the two together and you have creative writing, something that you make up. Bullshit your way through, if you will. Ironic in a way when we are usually brought up with the ideology that lying, and 'making things up' is bad. Very bad. Punishable by, well, punishments. To each their own.
The list of lucrative and otherwise rewarding careers available to law school graduates is seemingly never-ending. The days of thinking of a lawyer only as a trial attorney or negotiator are long gone. The following career paths are great for current law school students, as well as past graduates, to consider.
So, there's a lot going on in my life. From mom to writer, graphic designer to farm hand. There's more than I thought there would be, but I'm rolling along with it. I wanted to take a moment and share links to some of my projects and see if anyone else wants to share their own projects.
College is not for everyone. A lot of people learn that early. Those that learn it early enough will go on and start looking for jobs outside of the scope of college degree requirements. They just have to give some practical thought to what they want to do in order to find a good match for their skills.
If you asked me a year ago if I still enjoyed my current job, I would have told you "NO."
To be honest, law can be intimidating to the core. After two years of studying, finally, I am about to get to have a taste of what it is like to work in the legal field. I will be able to see the good, the bad, and the ugly life of a legal professional. I may have a little bit of qualms whether or not I will enjoy the job, but the fact that I get to advance my career is worth every effort I gave into this venture.
When I was younger, I didn’t believe in writer’s block. I assumed it was some form of laziness or procrastination. While there is truth to my original theory, I now realize writer’s block is very real.
Selling out, man. It's like, the worst, you know?
All of us dream of being able to work from home remotely. After all, we'd all gladly give up morning alarms, rush hour and dealing with obnoxious coworkers if we could. If you've been given the opportunity to work remotely, odds are that you're over the moon as you think about all of the obnoxious workplace annoyances that you'll never have to deal with again.
