So first, let me answer the question I am asked most often nowadays. No - I still don't have a job.

The funny thing is I'm not panicked. Maybe it’s because so much is going on at school right now. There have been many transitions at Wharton as the second years hand over the reigns to the first years the last two weeks, so my afternoons and evenings have suddenly gotten very full. And there's the marketing class that requires a lot of team work so I spend more time with my learning team. And then there's OPIM, which continues to be the bane of my existence. So there's a lot going on.

But I still don't have a job. Now don't get me wrong - I am a bit worried. Whenever anyone mentions that we only have two weeks left of classes, I suddenly feel a bit nauseous. But panic isn't how I'd describe my mood.

When I ended DIP week without a job, I promised myself I wouldn't panic until April 1. I thought, "Surely I'll have a job by April 1.” Well I don't.

Maybe I'm not panicked because I have a good feeling about my most recent interview. On Friday (April 1), I interviewed with my first employer after undergrad. The position is a completely different function, but it a job I've often dreamed of doing. I think the interview went reasonably well, and I just feel good about it. It's somewhat ironic that I got the call to interview on the March 31, the day before my panic drop date. I pray this one comes through. Wish me luck!
