What was your dream job when you were younger?
I never knew what I wanted to do when I was younger, I always found myself wanting to do different things it varied from wanting to be a Hairdresser to a Doctor, it was only as I got older I realised I was more creative and wanted to do this as a career in future.
What do you do now?
I have just graduated from university and have recently started my dream job at Beauty Bay as an Influencer Marketing Assistant.
Best and worst things about post-uni life:
No one prepares you for the difficulty of post university life, for the first time you have no direction about what’s next and their is a lack of support with how to navigate finding jobs is heightened in a pandemic!
I think the best thing you can do is to stay positive and it will work out, even when you least expect it too.
The best thing about post university life is you have worked so hard and now you have the opportunity to choose what you would like to do as there is so much variety out there. There is no rush as everyone’s on their own path.
Do you have a fave quote?
My favourite quote is:
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”~ Walt Disney
Has there been a time in your life where things didn’t go as planned but helped shape you in the long run?
Yes! I decided to take a gap year to resit my A Levels and if I hadn’t have done this I wouldn’t have gone to London College of Fashion as I didn’t know about the university and the variety of courses they offered. If I hadn’t have taken a gap year would have studied Business Management and I wouldn’t have been where I am today.
How has covid affected your career?
Initially yes, it’s been really draining and difficult to find entry level jobs and the level of competition is crazy! I’ve been lucky my hard work finally paid off as I have just started my dream job at Beauty Bay as an Influencer Marketing Assistant, it took me three months after graduating to find a job! My advice is don’t give up it will happen, even when you are about to give up.
One piece of advice for your former self about to graduate?
Don’t worry! Everything works out for a reason and if it didn’t it wasn’t meant to be.
