I Was Fired From My First Post-Grad Job and It Was the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me

After 2 years of post-grad interning, working, freelancing, contracting, bad-bosses, career-jumps, and - ultimately - many lessons learned, I'm here to share some lessons, advice, words of wisdom, and positive-thinking that has gotten me through it all and help anyone else who doesn't know quite where to go from here.

About Bridget Reed

"Since a young age, Bridget was drawn to design, computers, and technology as a whole. She's a Philadelphia-based UI/UX software designer and front-end developer, as well as the designer for Girl Develop It Philadelphia.

Bridget has worked with agencies and companies of all sizes, both full-service and pharmaceutical, and has taken part in everything from print to email and web, advertising and branding to social media. When she's not designing or coding, she can be found browsing the web, sampling craft beer, record shopping, and playing Sudoku at home with a nice cup of coffee."
