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.

  2. Congrats on your internship! Get in there, work hard and show them what Megatron is made of! 🙂

    I’m excited to be entering the “world of big corporate players.” It’s only scary if we have “imposter syndrom” and don’t believe that we can be a part of that world.
