Working Girl

On this blog I've shared my allotted number of posts on personal freak outs about my future (like this, this one, and this one too), but with the future on my mind, I feel like I should ask y'all something. I'd love to hear from anyone about their experiences!

How did you go about looking for your first "grown up job"? I'm not talking about an internship, and not a part time job. I'm talking 40 hours a week, pay the bills, get to the office at 8:30 am, grown up position. As I've just finished up being advised on my last semester of college ever (ahhh!) I wonder how y'all balanced or are balancing job hunting, being a college student, and/or still maintaining another part-time job. I'm a first semester senior, taking a full load of 5 classes, and I have 3 jobs, so to say my plate is full could be an understatement. I never thought I'd say I'm ready to be done with college, but I'll be excited for the day that I don't have to think about both work and homework.

So how did you find your first real job? If you're in the same boat as me, have you started applying for jobs post-graduation yet?
