Dream Job Factory

As the year winds down here, and we start to soak in what happened in the last year, as a first year student you begin to think ahead, for the day you will leave here too, and look for that first job.

Brandcenter trains people. No doubt about it. Trains them hard fast and smart. We are definitely sought after and wanted, but as more and more students go through competing schools it is harder and harder to prove your wealth.

It definitely feels like the attitude here is to get out and land that dream job. Everyone here drinks the cool aid. Everyone. We dream of those jobs where we fly around the world for photo shoots, meeting celebs, and the other perks about this industry. There's a problem here though.

Not everyone is going to get those jobs, actually few to none will. The navy lures people in with promises of jets and far away locations but for every fighter pilot in the Navy there are 150 people there to ensure that the plane stays in the sky and cooks that clean up behind the scenes at the 5 star hotels.

We all have high goals and dreams here. I do as well, but I came here to get away from mind numbing labor, and along the way it changed from finding a job that made me happy into a job that would make people drool over. I don't know if that's a good thing, but it's where I'm at.
