It was a late Friday evening and I just arrived at Seven Grams Caffe in Chelsea, New York City to meet Brittney Oliver. Brittney and I had been social media friends, exchanging tweets and stories in only 140 characters…
A year ago, marketing communications professional Brittney Oliver decided to take life’s lemons and turn them in to lemonade…
No one is immune to negative experiences. They’re part of life. As the saying goes, “it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you react.” That’s a phrase I find to be especially true in the context of navigating challenging experiences that come up in the workplace…
My lifestyle and career focused articles have received over 5M impressions and my work has been republished in TeenVogue, Time.com, Fast Company, Business Insider and many more. My branded Lemons 2 Lemonade events have garnered over 3M impressions. I’m currently looking to partner with companies and brands for event, media and sponsorship opportunities.
On July 27, 2015, I opened up to the world about my career journey. My experience with pursuing career goals and job hunting has helped to motivate, inspire and equipped people to continue to work on their dreams. My testimony and experience can be used to lead workshops, panel moderation and much more.
What a positive and encouraging article. You are a warrior and you proved it with your perseverance and tenacity.
This was a great write and very encouraging, while motivating simultaneously. I have experienced everything you wrote about and have begin to channel my thoughts in new directions as you also wrote about. Thanks for a beautiful confirmation and congratulations on your accomplishments and good luck on all your endeavors.
I really enjoy the very first learning around "Do not give up on finding your perfect fit". It truly is the candidates world out there and it is important to find the position that really is your next home. Great article Brittney Oliver.
I like your willingness to go public and declare that at least one person has survived 100 job interviews and 8 months of being unemployed. Not often that people are allowed a glimpse into what can feel like a very lonely nightmare. Thanks.
[Your] article has pertinence and a lot of deep meaning, not only in the search for jobs, but also about lessons learned, mostly introspection that spurs onto action. It also about sharing one's life experience with an 'open mind', courage, patience, humility and so many qualities... Thank you for sharing your story Brittney.
Really appreciate the positive attitude with which you approached this entire process! It's encouraging to remember we shouldn't settle and that perseverance pays off.
Brittney... thank you for sharing your journey in such a candid and raw way. Very inspiring for those looking for their next opportunity! Never give up. Best of luck to you!
I read your article & wanted to thank you for it. As a fellow recent grad trying for PR job, it helped me to focus my own search
Hi Brittney! I got inspired reading your article. Moving from a different country to another made my job search tougher. And I must say I do experience what you felt before now. But I won't give up! "Be resilient and keep working towards your dreams, when the timing is right everything you wished for will happen for you."
Brittney, thank you so much for your candor and vulnerability. This should be required reading for anyone in a job search!
