Spring Break 2013

It is my last spring break as an undergraduate student. Most college seniors spend their time at the beach or at the pool with a few afternoon cocktails. However, I am spending my spring break studying for the Communications Law exam, helping out a couple of friends with their personal branding efforts, applying for jobs and learning Spanish. Have no fear, I am not looking for a pity party. I would not change the way I am spending my last spring break as an undergraduate student! I am a strong believer investing in my future career.

Check out the photos below 🙂

Erin Personal Branding

My friend Erin is a hair stylist looking for a position at a hair salon. She needed help with personal branding and I wanted an excuse to explore with Adobe Indesign and Illustrator. This flower represents her well because of her free spirit personality. She is very flexible and goes with the flow. The sort of traits that is important in the cosmetology industry.

Tiffany Personal Branding

My friend Tiffany is looking for a clerical position in the health care industry. She needed help with personal branding and I wanted an excuse to explore with Adobe Indesign and Illustrator! This flower represents Tiffany well as she is an ambitious individual who is not afraid to take a challenge. Currently, she is studying Radiology and has an impressive 3.7 grade point average.

Applying to jobsGraduation is quickly approaching and I am on the quest to land the perfect job! Applying online to various job postings is what everyone tends to do…. However, I am hoping to stand out by sending my personal branding package to employers via snail mail!

SpanishThe last class needed to graduate from the University of South Florida is Spanish 2. Interesting huh? So I have a couple of different options to speed up the process.

1. Take the exempt test. However, I have to test past Spanish 2 or I could jinx myself in retaking Spanish 1 and then taking Spanish 2 which would push back the date even further.

2. Take the Spanish 2 class over the summer semester and be done! (My goal is summer A but the summer schedule is not posted yet. Worst case scenario is Summer B or C)

Either way I need to learn Spanish! I am halfway done with the 5 CD program! I must say that it is working!

photo….Ah yes. My choice of music makes for smooth sailing! Cannot go wrong with John Lennon!!!

Until next time,
