A few weeks ago, I was given a really fun opportunity. I wasn't sure if it was a good idea or a bad idea, but I went with it. After weeks of waiting, emails, calls, and worrying, it is here.
Earlier in the year sometime, it's quite a blur about when, but a fellow named Robbie contacted me wanting feedback on his new book, "Fire Me, I Beg You." I was obviously sold on doing this because I love adding fun things to my free time that don't involve hanging out with cats. I loved the piece, and I didn't think much else would come from it. Fast forward and I hear from Robbie again! This time he wants to ask me questions about alumni finding jobs. I was super excited to answer his questions, and I felt like a professional for the first time. This person I don't really know is coming to me! How did they get my name? Do I have a reputation for being awesome? None of this could be, but I was still dying to know the outcome.
I found out late last week what questions were being highlighted from me and I was relieved. I was answering the most honest questions to pass a professional. I can't say if I was good, bad, or mediocre, but I can now say that I have helped contribute to an article in the Huffington Post.
Baby steps, my friends, baby steps.
