4 Tips to Staying Sane While Hunting for a Job

As you all know from my life update last month, grad school is done and I’m on the hunt for a job in the field of Public Health. I feel like what no one tells you is how exhausting hunting for a job is. It seriously feels like a full-time job that requires patience, persistence, and a whole lot of prayer.
