In a blink of an eye I was graduated and home in good ol' West Jordan, leaving me to wonder "What's next?"
As always in the summer, I started on the job hunt, but something was a bit different this time: I had a degree and a desire to not settle for anything less than what I wanted in a job.
I started pulling up websites with job offers for journalists and graphic designers, wishing I had put a little more effort into taking classes for graphic design majors -- like typography -- or at least had sat down with a designer at the Scroll to teach me some of their secrets to good design.
Sure, I'm pretty good at the basic ideas of design, especially for page design, but I just realized I wanted to know more about the design world -- but, alas, it's a little too late.
Other realizations I had revolved around my choice of major, and therefore my choice of career. Roughly 100 million advertisements in the classifieds were for engineers or nurses. "Shoot," I thought to myself, "too bad I'm not good at that one science thing." Then there were the 100 million other computer/website design jobs. "Crap. I should have learned HTML."
Then again, I don't like science or computers, and something could turn up in page design, right? Stay tuned for the answer.
