NutritionJobs Interview

NutritionJobs.com InterviewSometimes it feels like nothing changes, and then suddenly, something happens to make me reflect on the many changes that took place in a short period of time.

Back in August, I was interviewed (via email) for a blog post to be published on NutritionJobs, a job hunting resource for nutrition professionals. They published the interview earlier this month, and you can read it here.

It surprised me how different things are now.

At the time, I had a part-time job for PapayaHead, a weekly dinner plan website. I was testing a new feature that has yet to be released. I was also in my last quarter of classes, struggling to find balance between responsibilities for school and the rest of my life.

Now, I am a full-time dietetic intern (at various locations/rotation sites, see here for which ones). I have fewer assignments so I have more time for hobbies and my Goal List.

It was also good to reread the answer I gave to the question “What advice do you have for others wanting to be just as successful and fulfilled as you?” (This was my favorite question). I was very convicted by the answer I wrote, because I feel like I lose track of that sometimes (no spoilers here, you’ll have to read the interview to find out what I said). Also, I like this question because I didn’t know what advice to give of my own, so I shared advice I got from people I think are “successful and fulfilled”–my parents. I appreciate their wisdom and I hope you will too.
