It’s 2016, and we are all online all the time. We FaceTime our significant others instead of actually talking to them, we gChat our work friends, Facebook message funny links to our college friends, and email our grandparents.
So you’re about to begin your job hunt and all of a sudden, all these questions start to pervade your mind: What am I good at? What do I love to do? Am I good enough? What if I actually suck at everything and learned nothing in college?!
At some point in our lives we will hear the words “what are your qualifications for this job” during an interview and how you answer this question will be a large deciding factor as to whether you will land the job.

After all the interviews, showing up in uncomfortable clothing and days spent wondering how well you actually answered some of those questions, you get the news...and they decided to go with someone else!
