Starting out all optimistic that you will FINALLY have a cool job at BuzzFeed.
But then getting minorly anxious when you realize most of the openings are in fact NOT staff writer positions.
And you start sifting through the openings, looking for anything remotely relevant to your skills...
...getting frustrated by all the technical skills required.
You finally find something interesting, for then to realize 2-3 years relevant experience is a requirement.
And you start to question if you are in fact qualified for any position.
But then all of a sudden there is a new opening, and you are definitely qualified for it!
But then there's this feeling creeping up on you that you might in fact be OVERQUALIFIED for this job.
Anyhow, you finally ship off what you find to be a well-crafted cover letter, and the waiting begins.
But eventually it dawns on you that you might not be the only one applying for the job, and that maybe you had unrealistic expectations.
Then you have an epiphany: Maybe you should just boost your presence on the Community pages?
But then you are introduced to the confusing world of cat power and badges, and no one is telling anyone how ANYTHING works.
And you realize how much time staff writers must use on their posts, without even knowing if people will like it!?
But then you realize that wallowing in self-pity won't get you anywhere, so you let yourself be inspired by the ever optimistic Kimmy Schmidt.
And you realize that although Anastasia Steele got a job straight out of college, that does not mean you are a complete screw-up (yet, at least).
Because good things come to those who wait 🙌
