The pressure is on!
Wow, less than one month until school is over and my career in PR begins. I am as excited as I am freaked out. I am very confident in my ability and I feel that PR is a perfect fit for me. It is rare that someone finds their true calling, but for me, I think this is it. That being said, I’m as nervous as can be about starting my internship.
It’s not that I don’t think I can do it, it’s that I don’t know what to expect. I think everyone feels that way entering into a new job though. I feel the challenges that await me will test my every being. And I am ready to embrace that challenge, nerves in tack.
It’s a scary world out there. Big corporate players, clients, cubicals, suits and billable hours. For someone who has worked at family restaurants her whole life, its a lot to take in.
I am also excited to have to go buy a complete new wardrobe. My only dress pants cost $15 from Sirens (a cheapy-type store, for those who do not know). I even had to buy a pair of dress shoes to wear to the interview.
So if you see a young girl strolling around Young and Bloor struggling in her heels, it’s probably me.
