Searching for a job/career! ((help!))

Recommended Posts

hello ladies!

 

well, my college graduation is looming in the next 50-60 days (who's counting??) right before scott and i get married! :)

 

so basically, i am on the job hunt, but i'm stalled. i started college as an early childhood education major, but recently switched to youth & community studies (also within the college of education). this switch means i do not have a teaching certificate, which is okay because i'm not sold on teaching...i'm annoyed with current education system (this is a whole 'nother topic! ha) SO this brings me to...what am i going to do with my degree??

 

i know FOR SURE i want to work with children/youth in some way. nonprofits are looking interesting, but i'm not sure of the availability and my qualifications for these types of jobs. i'm super interested in working at like a children's museum or something like that.

 

my question for you gals is: ANY IDEAS? haha any suggestions/advice would be awesome! thanks for letting me vent!!

I feel ya! I graduated in August and have not started the job search yet, so I'm not too much help... but I know how much it sucks to try to decide what you want to do. I couldn't do it, so FI and I decided that I should put it off til after the wedding. Right now I have a really flexible part time job with a children's magazine publisher. I have been there about a year and I am starting to work on our marketing stuff... It's not exactly what I want to do with my life, but the job is giving me some good experience in a a different field.

How about an entry-level fundraising/development job at a children's nonprofit. That's what I did after college and now I am a political/nonprofit fundraising consultant. You'll never be unemployed and if you're good at it you can make a difference and make decent money for nonprofit work and have a good work-life balance.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
