I may be the new kid now but I was you once. No matter how good you have it today (when anything before 10:00 a.m. is “the crack of dawn” and you have more free time in one day than most working professionals get in one week) that time is coming to an end. In fact, there are now fewer than 100 days left to graduation at Marist College, of which I am a proud alumnus. If you’re paying attention to the calendar, you’re probably freaking out.
I know I was.
When my own senior countdown reached double digits, panic ensued; I had no job leads (but decent internship experience) and countless news reports and discouraging adults tell me it would be more likely Herman Cain would be elected president than me getting a job right out of school.
Well, the joke’s on them; I got hired.
