Asking for Help

I can honestly say that I have come into contact with some of the best people through this Disney process.  The recruiters I have e-mailed and spoken with have been as helpful as they probably can be and I know they are trying their best.  She was very willing to listen and work with me on my job offer debacle from before.  I have received an offer for an internship with a PR firm locally and I have decided to take it (SO EXCITED).

There are a few people in my college, and outside, that have reached out to me during my Disney process.  There is one gentleman that works with me in a student group that has been working on connections in Disney for a while and he has looked at my resume and has been trying to help me out.  He introduced me to his friend who works for Disney and she said to call or e-mail her any time to talk.  It amazes me that people are so willing to help me get to where I want to go and I feel nothing but gratitude towards them.  I am sad that this part is over but I am even more excited to start this next chapter of my life with this new opportunity.  Who knows, maybe I will apply again in the summer or fall!  Only time will tell!

Frustration

I am to the point where I am just annoyed with this whole process.  I e-mailed the intern team yesterday to get a copy of the job description for Search Engine Marketing and Social Media Advertising.  They responded very promptly saying the position had been filled.  I had gotten no notification of any kind so here I am expecting a call like an idiot.  I asked them about the other two that are left and I have yet to receive a response.  I am highly pessimistic seeing as how I have heard nothing from anyone except for when I bother them.  It’s hard to stay positive, especially with how frustrated I feel.  Anyone else who applied to that position, sorry, it’s filled.

NLIC- Client Services…

…at least I’m pretty sure.  I say I that because the e-mail said sorry, we are looking at other candidates but my dashboard still says in progress.  A few people have said rely on the e-mails over the dashboard so I’m more inclined to go with that.  I am staying positive and I refuse to believe that Disney is not in my future.

More Waiting

This is kind of the boring part where I don’t have anything interesting happening so I just wait patiently.  I get to go through the roller coaster of emotions that go along with it.

1. I finished the applications!

2. Overthinking that I didn’t do something right

3. But really working for Disney would be amazing so I get excited again

4. And I try to hold onto the excitement until I become paralyzed with fear again thinking that I won’t get it

5. So I visit the Facebook group thinking this will make me feel better

7. It doesn’t

8. And then this

Just an idea of what nonsense is happening in my brain and many other people’s.  Offers are starting to be handed out like wildfire and I am so nervous since I haven’t had any kind of interview yet.  Pray for me and my sanity.

Waiting

It feels like I’ve been waiting for forever to hear anything when it’s really only been a month. That Facebook group I joined is seriously stressing me out. Some of them have already gotten offers and I haven’t even had a phone call or anything!

Here’s the current state of my dashboard:
Business Analyst (IT)- In Progress
Search Engine Marketing and Social Media Advertising- Submission
Member Experiences- In Progress
Client Services- Submission

Project Management- NLIC
Communications- NLIC
Marketing Analytics- NLIC

The Client Services one was done last week but the application still looked like it was open so I’m not sure if that one even counts. When I e-mailed the recruiter she said their IT guy would hear something by today at the earliest and since it’s today I’m stressing out even though it could be later. I just want to know!
