“You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes…”: Kate Hogan

“You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.” –Dr. Seuss

Confidence is the name of the game this week! We all have what it takes to land that new job, make a connection with a powerful director, or even to attend a session that is far from our comfort zone! Behind the fun rhymes of Dr. Seuss are some real words of wisdom and empowerment.

Right now, steering myself in the direction of my choice is extremely important. I will be participating in The Placement Exchange 2010, as I prepare to leave The Florida State University and embark on my first professional position within the field of Student Affairs. I will be searching for residence life positions, and know that I have a ton of great competition for opportunities. However, Dr. Seuss reminds me that I have what it takes. I have brains in my head, after all!

I am excited to be in Chicago next week, for I am not only participating in TPE but also will be lucky enough to attend conference sessions! Learning from those in the field is an invaluable experience. Professional development at every level is important and necessary. As a graduate student, I act like a sponge, soaking up every bit of wisdom and knowledge that I can from those around me!

Remember, when you start to doubt yourself…

“Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting… so get on your way!”
