So, Now What?

Dedicated to the MIIS Class of 2011 and to Classes of 2011 all over the place.

Finals are over

Professionals are too

The open future ahead

But what to do?

Polish your CVs

Spell check cover letters

Stay in touch with Jeff Wood

Make payments to creditors.

Zócalo, Monster

Even Craigslist

But don’t forget the contacts

You made there at MIIS.

The job market sucks

I’m not going to lie

Some 10% unemployment

Is impossible to deny.

But screw the facts and figures

Tell the stats to jump in a lake

Never let what you read

Bully the decisions you make.

They say it’s what you don’t

Rather than do that you regret

The time is now to do

Something you’ll never forget.

OK-let’s be clear

Caution bla bla bla

Bla bla moderation

Smart choices bla bla bla.

In the end worry is just noise

But experience is gold

So make sure you get some

Before you’re back in the fold.

Congratulations Class of 2011!!

Go Get’em!

    Thanks for that!

    Thanks for thinking of us! Good advice, I am also considering jumping in a lake. ; ) Haha, just kidding, going to get some more experience this coming year. I hope everything is going well in Spain!

    • Ha! Very good. “Go jump in a lake” is the closest equivalent to “Vete a freír espáragos” that I (with the help of Melia) could think of. Good luck and have a great summer!

    Pedazo de poema!

  4. Se te están pegando la guasa y el arte españoles, Dustiño. Grande el poema, deberían subirlo a la página de MIIS.
