Shimer has been quite the roller coaster ride since then, the best of my life, in fact.
Before coming to Shimer, my career plans bounced around frequently: at some point I have wanted to be everything from a computer technician to a tattoo artist to a journalist. However, one of the things I have gotten out of Shimer has been somewhat of a cementing of my career ambitions, or at least of what degree I will be obtaining in grad school. I have more or less decided I will be getting a Masters of Library Science degree, but I am still switching between wishing to be an archivist, or some breed of librarian. The internship I’ve secured is aimed to help me decide between the two by giving me real-world experience in both.
