Plans after Graduation

by Patricia on April 10, 2017

in Career Paths

As you already know, I plan on doing the internship at Dillard’s this summer. After that I will either accept a job at Dillard’s, depending if I am offered one. My other option is grad school. The schools that I applied to are Wash U and Notre Dame. Notre Dame is located in Indianapolis. Last week I received a letter saying that people with my profile have been accepted in the past and received fellowships. This gives me hope. I am still considering Fontbonne. Although Fontbonne doesn’t offer scholarships, it allows for flexibility. They allow you to take as many classes you want at a time. I could potentially work at Dillard’s and go to class at the same time. I would rather not do that; I am not very good at doing both at the same time. However if I go to Wash U or Notre Dame, I am required to go full time. At Notre Dame I would have to live on campus because I don’t have a car. I couldn’t possibly work either.

I have been thinking about internships lately. I went to the Career Fair and I considered applying for Edward Jones. Then I saw Dillards. I talked to the person at the table, and I think it’s a job i will really like! I also know someone who completed a Nordstrom internship and really liked it. Later on I also found out that Edward Jones is not what I thought it was. So I may not do an internship for them. Either way, I know I will get one that pays $15/hour! That’s a lot of money for me — I will feel like a rich person!

There are many of us here at Fontbonne that have the responsibility of full time school, plus a job on top of that. Finding a good one, or at the very least one you don’t loath, can be tricky. As someone that has had three different part time jobs since going back to school, I can tell you that while it may seem impossible there are some very useful tools to help make everything from resume writing to job searching a lot easier.

One of the most useful tools (or people rather) I have found right here at Fontbonne is our career councilor, Christine Keller — she is a fountain of information! She helped me polish my resume to fit more of what I was looking for, offered some great resources for writing a cover letter, and gave me some suggestions on where to look for a job. All I had to do was make an appointment with her, bring the resume I had, and tell her what type of job I’m looking for. As someone going into Art Therapy I’m really looking to work as an admin assistant in a doctors or psychologists office. Getting into these positions is the challenge so anything that makes it easier, or makes me stand out more is beyond helpful.

There are several places you can go to look for a job as well. Fontbonne has a job page here:

www.fontbonne.edu/jobs

I have also found Indeed.com, Craigslist (yes Craigslist), the local hospitals, and even the Yellow Pages to be great tools to find prospective employment. There will be rejection letters, those should be taken in stride, because the job that is the right fit for you will come your way at the right time. Just keep up the determination until you find what you’re looking for! Or until it finds you 😉

Cheers!

In ten years, I will be 34 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing. To me, the future is a scary thought because I have no clue what I want to do. Maybe some sort of writing writing or editing. Fontbonne has already helped me open a few doors to some careers. I am going to meet with a company to discuss an internship for the spring.

But let us look at what I see for me. I want to have a beagle after graduation. I plan on owning my own land in the country with a wife and a kid or two. This just depends on the path I go down. It may end up with me still living in Missouri or not. I want to somehow help people with my degree.

Where I See Myself in Ten Years

by Alumni Posts October 14, 2014

I’ve always heard that it’s best to live in the present, and focusing too much on past and future events isn’t healthy for the mind.  While I do agree that focusing too much on the past is typically unproductive, sometimes it is productive to have an idea of what your future may look like. Now, […]

Casting Call!

Through a connection made at my internship, I was offered a position as the Shoes and Accessories Coordinator for St. Louis Fashion Week this fall. As someone about to graduate with a degree in fashion and wanting to go into event planning, this is absolutely perfect for me. The last couple years, I have helped […]
