NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. As I was finishing college back in late 2015, I thought I had my future figured out. I had a great part-time job with wonderful people, and quickly landed a three-month social media internship with potential for a full-time dream career. I was well on my way towards the American dream: received my degree and paved a path for a successful career in my area of study. Of course, life threw a curveball and the internship did not pan out as expected. I decided to continue with my original part-time job at Disney instead of staying with my internship team.Read More →

Mastering the work life balance is tough. This generation is all about the hustle – working hard and doing everything you can to achieve the dream career, relationship, car, and overall life. We’re expected to balance a full-time job, friendships, a healthy lifestyle, a relationship, daily life errands, and our sanity. Many times we have to compromise one part of life to help support another; sacrifice our friendships to focus on a career, for example. I’m still rather new to the full-time career life. It’s taken at least six months to start really creating more of a plan to fine tune this work life balance. ARead More →

Whether you’re brand new to the career search or attempting to switch jobs, a phone interview is an essential part of the application process. It may not seem as intimidating as an in-person interview, but it’s still an essential step towards making a lasting and impressive first impression with the company you’re hoping to join. Throughout the various internships and jobs I’ve had in the past few years, many of them included phone interviews. Whether discussing your qualifications with a recruiter, manager, or even VP, it’s always important to prepare ahead of time to not only increase your chances of success, but to also build confidence behindRead More →

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a perfectionist. I strive to create my best work possible for anything I’m doing – whether it was in school, at any job, blogging, or with my personal relationships. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I realized that one reason why I always strived for my best: I was terrified to fail.Read More →

Yesterday I started my first post-graduation job! I’m currently one of the two social media interns for an online clothing boutique, and I’m ridiculously excited to see how everything unfolds! I figured I’d write a few posts to track my progress throughout this internship, to see where I’ve grown and how much I’ve learned! It’s a three month internship, so I’ll probably write something for the beginning, a mid-internship update, and finally the end! First Day on the Job: What I Did: Today was technically orientation day. I met the other intern, was introduced to everyone around the office, took a tour of the office and the warehouse,Read More →

I’m currently experiencing my final semester in college, which can imply a few things: Classes are demanding, group projects are abundant, a social life is minimal, and you have the ever-looming question of “What am I doing after graduation?” constantly pestering you in the back of your head each day. After my Disney College Program, I thought I had my entire future planned out. I knew I needed to finish my marketing degree, gain experience in an internship, network, and then apply for Disney Professional Internships for immediately after graduation. In the meantime, I’d work in Disneyland part-time to keep my foot in the door with theRead More →
