Recruiters Recruiting Potential Recruiters

Today was our career fair at school. I am on the board for our school’s hospitality and tourism career fair. Unfortunately, I had a lab class that pretty much didn’t allow me to attend the fair except for the last two hours.

The ambassadors I had assigned to companies, I barely saw.
The lunch I helped approve, I did not eat.
The speaker who I, honestly, had nothing to do with in choosing her, I didn’t get to see.

It was a bit disappointing.

However, I found that coming in after the commotion of the morning and seeing the hard work the whole board had put in for the past semester turning into an actual event, was completely rewarding. I felt honored to be a part of the planning process. We helped bring recruiters to campus to help fellow students find jobs and internships. I met with a few freshman who were attending their first career fair and they were completely excited about the many different possibilities the future held. I had to take a step back and berate myself that I had done my job. Yes, I had missed out on the morning activities but I wasn’t on the board for a free lunch, I was on the board to help bring opportunity to other students. Who, one day, might be colleagues or important contacts.

Realizing you’re not the most important person is usually not an issue for me. Sad but true, I always wished I was that person who never doubted themselves..but hey I’m human! Although, today I found that maybe my ego was bigger than I had realized.

Well…

Embrace the awkward, and practice reckless optimism.

What on Earth is this?

I am not a writer. I am not a Liberal Arts Major who journals daily. I am not a trendy photographer.

I am a daydreamer. I am a people person. Sometimes I can even be funny. So if any one ever reads this, hello and welcome to the weird inner workings of my mind. I am just pretty disillusioned with this whole college forum, so I decided to distract myself from my already hectic life and create a blog.

Maybe writing things down will help me focus on my homework later on…hopefully.

Currently I have only 3 semesters left here at good ole Purdue. I do love this university and all of the opportunities it has given me, but I’m just not a school person. I dream of traveling and meeting new people. Experiencing new things. I learn better that way any ways.

So this blog is going to hopefully help me focus, lets see if I keep up with it. You can join me on this struggle of managing finances, relationships, and college studies.

Embrace the awkward and practice reckless optimism,

Robin
