<!-- Explanation of who I am -->

<p>I recently graduated from Northeastern University in Boston with my
Bachelor of Science. I studied music, business, and writing.
<br>
Northeastern has a cooperative education program, meaning that most students stay for 5
years in order to go on 2 6-month long
<br>
internships called co-ops. During these co-ops, students gain real life,
practical experience, so when they graduate, they have 12
<br>
months of relevant experience on their resumes.</p>

<p>Sounds like a dream, right? Maybe it is, <em>maybe it isn't.</em> <b>It depends.</b></p>

<p>It is a dream if you know what you really want to spend the rest of your life doing
when you're 18, choose the right co-ops, make
<br>
all the right connections, and, basically, don't make any mistakes. I didn't do
that. Don't get me wrong, my resume looks a lot better
<br>
with the experiences and education from Northeastern. However, I was young when
I chose my path; I thought I knew what I wanted
<br>
out of my career and life. I didn't. I thought, because I went to NU, that I would automatically get a job
right after graduation. As of
<br>
today, September 13th, 2016, over 4 months after graduating, I still haven't.
Part of that is that, with a primarily musical education,
<br>
I didn't learn skills that opened me up to a wealth of job opportunities in
Boston. In New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, or
<br>
Nashville, I would be much better off, but I'm in Boston. I really should have
planned this out better.</p>

<!-- Explanation of why I'm on Skillshare and this project -->

<H2>So, that's why I'm here, on Skillshare.</H2>

<p>I have many, many experiences, because I've worked a variety of different jobs:
<br>
<em><small>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a creative writer
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a contributor to a music magazine
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;an artist & repertoire intern for a record label
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a marketing representative for a different record label
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;an office assistant for a medical billing company
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a member of the events staff for a concert venue
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a tutor and mentor for middle and high school students
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a summer school instructor
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a sales associate in retail
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a customer service representative in retail
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a master of ceremonies for an open mic and coffeehouse that showcased artists
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a corporate account management intern.</em></small></p>

<H4>The only problem is, I don't have very many quantifiable skills</H4>
<p>...yet. That's where Skillshare comes in. I plan to earn certificates and acquire
knowledge about topics I didn't pursue in college.
<br>
This project is the first of many ventures to acquire new skills. I look forward
to learning more!
