Connections for my first and applying like hell for my subsequent ones. They say it’s easier after your first one but it’s still tough.

I just cold applied to a lot of places. My book was more advanced for someone at my age at the time so I got a lot of interest.

@AD Intern - I totally agree! I’ve had two internships in the past (one by applying and one through connections), and I’m still struggling finding a job or another internship

@OP I feel you, I’m looking for my fourth now and it’s supposedly easier with all these “connections” you’ve built up but no one has your back like yourself. Good luck to us 🙏🏼

Why is there so many negative perspectives of majority black cities in our industry? The underhanded things I've heard about cities like Newark, Detroit or Atlanta are unsettling. There is almost never a positive thing to be said about majority black cities from people in our industry. Those cities are always painted as dangerous and unfriendly. The places you "don't want to be in at night". Why is this the case?
