Life's trials and tribulations definitely make me who I am, but lately, I'm not sure where they are leading. At times, I've been far too content with the status quo, but Darden has shown me a revived need for direction. And with that, the daunting task of making new and harder decisions. In the last few days, I've been all over the map. I woke in a funk the other day that didn't seem to vanish until the wee hours of the next morning. I can't even pinpoint what make me so distraught.
I suppose I don't show it much, but I'm worried about my internship prospects. Yes, the game is not over, but for IB, it has concluded. I've sent out a number of CLs and CVs since, however, I've received little, if any, positive response. I sometimes wonder if my resume doesn't lend itself to my chosen direction and perhaps that's simply the economic conditions. I have academic strength where I need it to prove my aptitude for financial concepts. Maybe I'm just highlighting the wrong aspects of my background.
Recently, I've tried using my network. Nothing has surfaced, but I'm hopeful. I have had an entire 4 interviews and am starting to feel sub par. Two months ago, I knew exactly what I wanted whereas it's fuzzy today and I'm starting to feel that I simply want a job, which is something I could have gotten without business school.
(Please note that by no means would I ever change my decision to come to business school...)
