I am exhausted. I just woke up from a one and one-half hour nap. I am trying to catch up on several homework assignments that are due tomorrow and later this week. Unfortunately, my motivation is going down because I am worried that I won’t be able to find my dream co-op for next summer.
For example, I found out that application for my dream co-op will become available tomorrow and it is due by the end of February. I am working on the cover letter and resume along with other required materials. I want to submit materials as soon as possible. The sooner I can submit, the better the chance I have to get it. The internship program is very competitive. The reason I want that job is because it is close to my hometown, so I can spend more time with my fabulous family. Another reason is because it is actually a paid internship with awesome benefits!
Okay, I’m not going to get my hopes up. If I don’t get that job, well okay. At least I have big connections. It is extremely important to network with people. One of the benefits of me networking with people is that I have a wonderful friend who is a doctor. She was the one who mentioned that internship program to me.
Not only is networking important, but we have awesome resources here on campus, too. The NTID Center on Employment will assist students to find a job. My wonderful NCE counselor is assisting and encouraging me to find a job because RIT/NTID wants us to succeed in co-op jobs, so we can experience a taste of the real world and what it’s like to have a real job.
See you later, friends!
