Acquiring Gainful Employment
Most of the students with whom I will be graduating have a couple of goals, one of which is typically to “acquire gainful employment.” At least that’s what a lot of resumes seem to be saying. Perhaps this is more of a long-term goal for some, with some sort of post-undergrad schooling yet to complete, but for me and many others, it is a current short-term goal. I will graduate in May with a Bachelors in Speech Pathology. This will require me to eventually go on to graduate school to get my Masters if I want to practice Speech Pathology, but I am planning on taking a year off to regroup before doing that. Besides, I haven’t had time to apply to graduate schools yet! So I’ve joined the ranks of Americans seeking gainful employment.
