My second job fair: a personal story

Hi Blog world,

Have you ever had a craving for a certain food? Well, I’ve had a craving for a fish sandwich for the past week, and that’s what I had, from McDonald’s, after my second job fair.

This time, the job fair was much more crowded than the first job fair I went too.

Because of my eye condition, Nystagmus, crowds feel so overwhelming to me. So I ended up taking my time with getting around to the different employers that were there.

I feel like this job fair was a little bit more successful than the first, because I was able to fill out an application for a local law firm. The job I applied for was not a writing job, however, I would be able to use my skills from a previous job I had.

I gave my resume to a handful of other employees too. I know from my past experience that I will not get a call back because my skills didn’t match with what they where looking for. But at least, I got my name out there.      

I feel like this journey, has been a long one. Two years to be exact, however, the main theme of my current journey is the same. Keep trying, and don’t give up.

Blog soon,

Amanda Gene
