Advice to other Liberal Arts students: I’m someone who really needs to organize everything. Some things that really helped me to stay organized when applying to jobs while also still taking classes and working was making a master list of all the internships/ jobs I wanted to apply to, the link to the application, the deadline, and the date they’ll let you know by. Also, keeping a folder of all of my different resumes and cover letters with detailed names really helped when I needed to pull a cover letter together really quick!

Advice to other Liberal Arts students: If you aren't able to understand who you are and what you want to do, that is okay. Take your time to find where you are and your strong suits in life, even if you are to a point where you think that you can't change your career, you can. As long as you love what you want to do, you can take as long as you need to get there. Nothing happens in just a day.
