Post Grad Stress
I graduated May 12th and have truly been stressed ever since because of the plans I had in my head. I wanted to be fully secure before graduating but I am slowly realizing things don't really go as planned. They say if you want to make God laugh tell him your plans. My plan was to have a job as a content creator for a large brand but I am still currently free lance responding to every job posting. I almost feel like there's some type of secret code to getting these positions and I haven't figured it out. My work is getting better with every shoot so I'm for sure talented enough for an entry level position. Crafting every resume and cover letter so that I sound like the perfect candidate for the position has been the most stressful part. I have gotten to the point where I want to create the magic on my own and present it to the world like that. There is so much pressure to get an amazing job but what if the real opportunity is the one you created on your own. What if the dream publication is the one I just haven't started yet. All these thoughts inspire me to create more and more but be purposeful with how I market myself. I wonder if there are other creative graduates that can't handle the pressure and end up getting a regular job as a last resort. Sure being free lance doesn't give me the millions of dollars I need to be on vacation every month but it feeds me in a different way. I know that God is going to give me the tools to live the life of my dreams I just have to trust the vision he's given me.
