good luck! you still have things more put together than me, if it makes you feel better
thanks! i don’t feel that way though. i have a lot of good up-in-the-air possibilities, but few solid plans, so that’s why i’m feeling so much existential angst
i thought i was finished with all that when i left high school
i sent an email to my former boss (she left the university press) yesterday, essentially telling her that i’d like to enter the job market after getting my masters, and i’d asked her what advice she had if i want to get into publishing.
she replied far more quickly than i had imagined, suggesting numerous resources for job posting, and mentioning that she’s happy to hear i want to work in the industry long-term. she also thinks that my 2 year internship, MA, and teaching experience will make me marketable, so that’s great news.
she actually said i can start applying for jobs now, which is kind of crazy—but exciting—to think about.
