If it’s one thing i’ve learnt over the past couple years, it's that as one door closes another one opens.
As a third year Communications student at Ryerson, I was on the hunt for an internship in hopes of learning and gaining some much needed experience. I spent months searching for internships, applying to over a dozen with only few replies. It was discouraging to say the least.
I finally heard back from an internship I'd been eyeing for months, thinking 'this is the one'. Eventually, I got called in for an interview. I pretty much set my standards high, convincing myself that I was gonna get the job. The day of the interview came and I was down with the flu. I felt like it was all over for me at that point. I managed to power through and still went into the interview but everything just went wrong that day.
A week later, I got the rejection email...I thought this was the end of my quest for an internship. This was the perfect opportunity or at least so I thought, what else would be out there for me?
A couple weeks later I saw a job posting for Viviplan and I decided why not give it a try? What do I have to lose at this point? I had an online interview with Rona and we hit it off right away. I went on the meet Seyon, the co founder, and that's when it hit me. This is where I was meant to be.
Safe to say, I got the job and I've never felt more fulfilled. The learning experience is unbelievable and I work with a team filled with incredible minds. Everything came full circle and that's when I learnt the simple lesson that as one door closes, another one opens. Never give up hope, there's an opportunity waiting for you so GO GRAB IT!
