What a Difference a Semester Makes
If you'd asked two years ago, my hope was to find a corporate job with a Fortune 100 in HR developing training materials. Now, I definitely feel that I'm a better fit for academia and as a result, I look more closely at the job postings R. has submitted to the group.
At the beginning of the semester, it was fun to look at them and think "Someday, I'll know how to do those things," but now, just one semester later, I could actually apply for the jobs because I've worked with each program.
Just because I've done one assignment for a class doesn't make me an expert, so I will continue refining the skills I've gained. It still impresses me that one semester could give me the basics to get a job.
