Guest Post: Keep Calm and (Job) Search On

For those of you who are unaware, I’m happy to say that my blog has recently been accepted into the Her Campus Blogger Network. This has been an amazing opportunity for me, as I regularly converse with fellow bloggers about any questions that I have, sponsorships, reviews… but the best part of it all is making cool new friends from across the globe!
