I don't. I found something else that I love more and I am executing against my exit strategy. A year from now, I'll be onward and upward. If you are committed to staying, find your tribe of other like-minded people and build the strength of those relationships. You can also figure out who in your office inspires you and meet with them occasionally and build that relationship to a mentorship. Lastly if your current organization is just not going to support your long term vision, then start looking for an agency that is doing it well and prepare yourself to look for roles there. I've done all of this btw. You only live once. You do not owe it to any employer to give up your happiness. You only fail if you don't try.

Hi! I’m majoring in IT & don’t know what I want to go into once I graduate. I’ve been set on getting an internship but it looks like I’m too late to land one for summer 2022 so I’m going to prepare for summer 2023. I’m anxious because I have no experience being 20 years old. I have 4-5 years of customer service experience but so does every student. What internships are more accepting of beginners? Project management, technical account Manager, Systems engineer maybe? Still learning the field.

I would plan to get a car eventually and though I want a 1 bedroom, I'm not opposed to a roommate.
