Whitney Johns: Unmet Expectations, Unfulfilled Desires

 

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – In the past year, I graduated from college with a four-year bachelor’s degree, moved to a new city, and began applying for jobs. I quickly realized that four years of college means nothing in most cases, seventeen is the preferred number of years of experience most employers want, and the only jobs I was qualified for were Lyft driving and folding clothes at Old Navy.

Yes, this sounds incredibly pessimistic. But let’s be honest here – anyone over the age of 22 has experienced this in some way. And if you haven’t experienced this in the business world, you still know the feeling. It is the heartache of unmet expectations, the sorrow of unfulfilled desires.
