It took me nearly 18-months to land my first full-time job…and less than two-months to quit it.
I knew how silly my decision seemed to the people who cared about me. But I also knew that not only was I miserable, I wasn’t moving closer to my goals. My dream was to be a journalist, and this position was marketing, not media. That was 12 years ago, and I’ve been freelancing ever since.
