It may come as no surprise but this month has been very quiet on the Job Hunt application process, not being in the country and backpacking around Europe does seem to do that!
In June’s Graduate Journey post I spoke about aiming to find a job by November this month, giving myself a nice window of 6 months! However in the last two months I have landed a few pieces of freelance work which shall keep me busy in September & most of November, whilst this is great as it allows me to work but not fully decide on where I want to start my career it also means that I may need to take on some part-time retail work so that I start to get a semi-regular income in!
I am not against retail work, but I have always thought as I know what I want to do Job wise; I would just start my career journey straight away after graduating! I don’t think it helps that my Graduation ceremony isn’t till November & I really don’t want to be one of the only people not in a full time Events position – however I am also very aware that I only feel like this because a part of my doesn’t want to be judged by my peers! A very stupid view to have considering I am in a very happy place right now & about to participate in some exciting projects!
September is when the Job Hunt becomes more serious & I will keep you all updated with everything that happens – but if you have any advice or stories you want to share then please, please, please let me know in the comments below or via twitter!
