Nerves…

The most difficult thing about looking for a job in England is the fear of failure. I have a little more than three weeks to find a job. After that, I will have no place to stay and therefore, I will have to leave the country. If I return home, I will not have accomplished what I had set out to do; I want to live and work in the UK.

I thought hitting the ground running was going to be my best bet. I still think it was, but I think I may have been a bit idealistic and unrealistic. There is just this intense want to be here and that intense want keeps my hope up.

I am determined to succeed, I want to succeed, and I hope my interview goes well. This adventure cannot end; it’s only just began.

The world has always been pretty nice to me, and I usually end up falling on my feet. I hope this is the case still.

It almost seems fitting that it is the 4th of July. My American/can-do attitude should be me somewhere. Americans fought for our independence, and I will preserve until I find a job. And yes, I know, we are talking about two totally different levels of magnitude and intensity, but the spirit is there.

Any advice from those who’ve job hunted in another country would be very welcomed.

Please, work pants, dry quickly and be ready for tomorrow.

If Marcia Miller had to pick up everything and leave, then she'd make sure to grab a few things before she left. First, the duffel bag is a must, followed by her laptop and iPod. She grabs her journal next, along with every CD she owns - just in case. Miller pulls off the pictures and concert tickets that adorn her walls. A towel is going to be handy too - this she learned from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Finally, she grabs a handful of pens and her trusty AP Stylebook, throws her duffel back over her back and picks up her purse. Closing the door behind her, she leaves her apartment, heads down the stairs and... Well, Miller heads to your office because she's ready to do a job. She is ready to move at a moment's notice, write what needs to be written, edit what needs to be edited, promote what you think the world needs to know about. Miller's got the personality, the skills and the spunk to succeed in any situation. She's not afraid of trying new things or getting her feet wet. Her moto: If an opportunity doesn't present itself, then create one.
