The #1 Mistake Made During Your Job Search

We’re all pretty familiar with job searching and, to be honest, it can be a pretty painful process. I wrote an article for Looksharp about the #1 mistake you make during your job search–and what to do instead. I’ve linked it below if you’re interested!

‘The Art of Casual Networking’ on Looksharp.com!

Oh boy, has it ever been a busy month. Preparing for college graduation (and the rest of my life thereafter) has been a pretty daunting task. In the past month I’ve spent all of my time and energy applying to jobs and internships for after graduation (well, not all of my energy. I saved some to watch the season finale of GIRLS and then binge on SVU…gotta give yourself a break every now and then, right?).

In the midst of my job search, I have thought a lot about how I can boost my chances of finding a job and one word kept jumping out at me: NETWORKING.

For an introvert like myself, it can be hard to network. The word itself makes me anxious. But networking doesn’t have to mean putting on business attire and attending professional networking events. It can be as easy as…well…talking to your dentist*.

I’ve had an awesome time writing articles for InternMatch and for those of you who want my advice on how to network the EASY way, check out my article, “The Art of Casual Networking”.

It’s a short, easy-to-read, helpful article on how to easily market yourself in everyday life. I’d love it if you would take a look and leave a comment, it really helps out!

Again, thanks for all your support. I love this blogging community, you’re all so supportive in everyone’s endeavors!

Ciao,

Ashley

Show Me Some Love? Latest Published Article!

Howdy, ya’ll.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted (tsk tsk, I know), but I promise you that nice things will be coming this way. Just gotta get some good vibes flowing through my head space now that midterms are over (my last college midterms, people!).

I’m working on a haul post that will be up very shortly, but until then please enjoy my latest published article over on the InternMatch website. I’m very excited about my contributions thus far to their blog. It is a great tool for finding jobs and internships for college students and recent grads. But if you aren’t in search of a job, you can enjoy their helpful articles ranging from interview tips to intern horror stories.

My latest article, “Stop Comparing Yourself to Everybody Else,” is now live on their site, and I would love it if you would take a look, thumbs it up, leave a comment, or even Tweet it, should you wish to go so far.

Love you all and appreciate your support!

My Second Published Article!

Hey guys! Thanks so much for your support on my first InternMatch article (it can be found here, I would love if you’d check it out and drop a comment!) My SECOND ARTICLE is now published on the InternMatch blog and I’m super excited about it! It’s titled, “Why Michelle Obama is Right About Studying Abroad.” After studying abroad twice, this was an article I needed to write.

Study Abroad

If you have time, I would love if you could click this link to check out my article, and leave a comment if you have the time. Writing the article is half the battle, getting people to read it is the other half! Every view helps spread the word about my writing.

Thanks for being such a supportive blogging community!
