5 Things I Learned in Mexico that Improved my Job-Searching Attitude

Last week, I returned from a 17-day trip to Southern California and Tijuana, Mexico. I had just graduated with my Master's degree in New Media Studies from DePaul University on Father's Day, and hopped on a plane the very next day to begin my post-grad adventures, visiting family and doing some soul-searching.
