I grew up in the south, so you will probably hear me repeat a lot of sayings often in my blogs, one of them being “excuses or results.” We can make excuses about anything in life that we really don’t want to do and some are valid. Yet, they rarely get us to where we want to be or what we desire to have, but results do.
For instance, if you just graduated college and having a hard time getting a job in the field that you got your degree in, the easy thing to do is to play the victim card while blaming others. Please understand that I know sometime you will actually be a true victim. However, it usually won’t change the reason why you’re down and not happy. Also, sometime you got to think outside the box to get what you want in life.
Therefore, I feel the best way to handle this type of situation is to randomly start contacting HR resources through a tool like Linkedin. Let them know that you’re willing to do an internship for free for about two or three months. Thus, if you’re willing to work for free, there is a high chance someone will find a spot for you.
Plus, it’s a win-win for both sides, since you’ll get the needed internship experience. Furthermore, the company will get free work and might even decide to bring you on-board full time afterwards.
Have you made an excuse recently about something? If yes, what was it and did it help to get you the final result you wanted?
