my dad is always trying to get me to call people he knows that do research but unfortunately I don't want to do what they are doing

I have reached out to like 5 people (maybe not a lot) and I have no desire to do what they do or have done

Yeah all I hear about is the job market... Like don't major in such and such because there aren't enough jobs. I've also heard peopl suggest against grad school, weird.
Maybe you could teach. Good luck with your job search.

I actually think I screwed up by talking to a lot of people and not doing enough internet searches

I'm not that type to sit around and not seek information that will help me advance my career

unfortunately, the only people I spoke with that seemed to get what I wanted to do came into my life late in my academic career, most were like if "you get a Ph.D. you can only teach or be a clinician"

that is why I encourage people to do as many internet searches as possible and follow up with people/programs that interest you veryyyyy early on

i would suggest also joining a professional org. i know that sounds cheesy and whack and when i was younger i legit didnt do this--well i had no profession--but i am in one and i legit have emailed random people asking for advice, speaking to them, and then asking for jobs. 2 of them do exactly what i want to do--and have helped/passed my resume along, agreed to help me with an event i am planning. even if they do not give me a job per se...the IP world is NOT that big and just having people know your name...is a big start.

i also went to the conference last year in DC and forced myself to meet people and to talk. made great connects who again are helping me with my event.  i am applying for a scholarship to attend the annual conference this year.

hit up professors as well. prof. know people.

I am apart of one and have presented at two conferences for that org already and will hopefully present a third time in May

in grad school I emailed people on my campus, people at other universities, set up meetings with professors in different departments and meeting with professors in my own dept

I honestly think I should have done that plus more internet searches

I honestly think I'm going to be at my current job forever.
I'm too lazy to start networking and such.


I thank Oprah all almighty that I was able to get into my career before i was forced to make a linkedin account.  lol

lol

but for instance this cert I want to get....

I was doing a search for classes and what not and came across this program

had I found it earlier I could have moved back home sooner and completed a class or two while I was looking for a job.

now I will have to find a way to fit this into my work schedule, luckily one of my bosses is familiar with the program and thinks it is a great idea.

you're also lucky you've never had to switch firms.  that seems quite common. i emailed my 2 prof. for something and they BOTH had left the firm...and one was a partner.
