I suck at networking. No. I don’t. I really suck at it. Most of the positions I’ve had professionally came from actual recruitment and not because I had a bunch of people in the pocket of my career advancement efforts.
And yet, here I am again, trying to find something new. This time, it’s a counseling internship. Essentially, a pre entry-level job. Not even a paid one. But one I need to graduate and give myself the experience that most states in the US require before they’ll let me continue to help people.
So, that’s what I am diligently trying to do. A few friends and acquaintances are pulling some strings where they can – and I am grateful for their help. And their prayers.
