Employers don’t care whether you were paid for previous work you’ve done, as long as you have the skills they need for the open role.
I’ve always preached that you should follow your dreams and things work out the way they’re meant to. But can you just up and change your entire path, your entire career a few years in?
I grew up believing that the reason why my parents wanted me to do good in school was so I could get good education, get a good job, make good money, and then use that money to experience a life that was better than theirs. I believed that, the more money I had, the better my life would be.

Finding a job is like having a job. It’s a tedious, demanding process that can sometimes drive you up a wall.

Finessional should be a career choice, or at least a skill on your resume. It’s the only way to survive post graduate life. I graduated 3 months ago and finessing is the most valuable skill I’ve learned through my 4 years of higher learning.

The email that let me know I could literally do whatever I put my mind to, basically anything I wanted I could have.
You landed an internship, great! While right now, you probably expect to have projects, research, and tasks to keep you busy all summer, this probably won’t be the case.
