Professional World Here I Come!

So it is now highly recommended to not only have a LinkedIn profile, but to now also have your own resume website. From what I’ve been told, future employers will Google you when they see your name in the pile of resume applications. So, to prepare myself for the professional world I will be entering in one year, I’ve created jennifergioia.com.

If you are interested in what I’ve done for the past four years, check it out. I will be updating it with new information as my professional career grows. There are also a few writing clips of press releases, hard news, and feature articles I’ve written for college courses and practicums.

If anyone has any feedback at all, I’d really appreciate it. If you have a professional resume website, share it with me. I’d love to see what other people are doing and how they’re presenting themselves to the online web.

Happy Holidays! :)

Adjusting

So many thoughts swirling in my mind,

I’m graduating in a year – crazy!

He mentioned he wants to have a serious talk…

What’re we doing after we graduate?

I’m still trying to figure out where we’re going to live next fall semester!

What if we don’t get a job in the same area?

He said he doesn’t know if he could deal with a long-distance relationship.

I know it’ll be hard,

but I’m confident I could deal with it,

because my love for him is stronger than that.

How am I going to pay for rent right after graduation without a job?

Am I really going to succumb to a retail job until I get a “real” job offer?

I’m trying to adjust to all these new changes,

all these new phases in my life,

and trying to incorporate it into his.

Adjusting is hard

and I haven’t even started yet,

especially with a significant other.

Just thinking about it is stressful.

But at least it’s good that I’m thinking a year ahead.

(And that he’s thinking a year ahead.)
