Operation: Adulting was formed by leaders to create the leaders of the next generation
The "Real World"
Think back to your first interview after college: your resume is on point, your cover letter is fire, your interview fit is dripping and you know the company's benefit policies like the back of a sriracha bottle. The interview seemed to have gone well and a few days have passed so you're right on target with a follow up appreciation e-mail and then you receive an e-mail stating the company's condolences for moving forward with other candidates with more experience in the field.
Yes, this sucks and is irrevocably discouraging but before you retort with the obvious "Didn't you read that I literally graduated a month ago", our partner organisations are here to help you avoid the dreaded "it's not us, it's your lack of experience" mantra.
Operation: Adulting officially received its 501(c)(3) status in 2020 and is committed to creating transformative change for our next generation.
