When I graduated from university, I had high hopes of landing an awesome job in the city.

It never crossed our mind that I’d have a difficult time finding something, however sure enough, I spent weeks applying for many jobs.

I started out optimistic, applying for positions well above our experience level, thinking I’d land the job based on personality and charm, and however, I abruptly l gained that nobody was interested in a recent graduate like myself. I didn’t have the experience, and looking back on it now, I laugh at how naive I was. I never had the chance to interview, and I was never contacted at all; My standards abruptly lowered, and I started applying for lower positions, desperate for an income. After weeks of applying to hundreds of jobs, I received an text about an interview. I spent a lot of time preparing and planning for it, what I wasn’t expecting though, was our AC to go out in our automobile on the way to the interview. I was dressed in supplier casual, trying not to sweat through our clothing. I rolled the windows down to assume the cool breeze, however our hair ended up flying around and sticking to our neck. I kept banging on the dashboard, trying to get the AC to kick back on, no matter how strenuous I hit, no cool air came through the automobile vents. All I could manage was some lukewarm air, but by the time I pulled into the parking lot, I had sweat stains under our arms and our hair was damp from sweat. I looked like a worried wreck!
