I am currently attending Saginaw Valley State University pursuing my bachelor’s degree in communications with a minor in marketing. After finishing my classes for the Winter semester in May 2022, I decided I was ready to start the next chapter of my life. I had only one semester of college left, the fall of 2022, but I did not want to wait around. I only had three more classes to take which could all be completed remotely.

Since I had decided to take all online classes, I begin looking for job opportunities. I no longer wanted to stay on the east side of the state, so I began searching for jobs near Grand Rapids. It was a big change from the small country town I grew up in and seemed far livelier than Saginaw. It seemed like the perfect place for a young adult with many job opportunities.

Since I was working towards a communications major and a marketing minor, I was interested in a job in marketing, sales or hospitality. While searching through Indeed, I came across a part-time office coordinator position with Serendipity Media, which caught my attention. Finishing my degree was still a top priority so a part-time job seemed to be the best fit.

After my interview process with Serendipity Media, I felt very comfortable with the idea of making a transition into the “real world” with this company. During my first weeks at Serendipity, everyone was very inviting and friendly, confirming that I had made the right choice. Although I have only been here a short time, I have had nothing but a positive and serendipitous experience.
