Halfway through my final year and no idea what the future holds…
Today is the day! I am finished with the first semester of my final year meaning I am halfway through my final year of university.
The past semester has been an amazing one and I have learnt so much. I got to take part in a module that is basically blogging – it really helped me come up with a lot of extra content for the blog and helped me learn a little bit more about the business side of things and publishing yourself as a lifestyle writer which I found very interesting and extremely helpful. For this module I had two assignments – the first was a presentation and the second I created a travel blog, Living Through Layovers, which was such an amazing learning curve both education wise and for this blog. My second module involved me completing a work placement so that threw me into the real working world within the creative industry and increased my motivation to apply for internships for when I graduate.
What kind of internship I’d like to apply for is one thing I am still unsure of. I know that I’d like to work within the marketing / social media / content / editorial area however I want to try out various creative industries before I settle for one job. This is why I’ve decided to apply for internships or post graduate placements at a few companies that I’ve had my eye on for a while within publishing houses and the film industry.
With uni finished, I have a couple more shifts at work before I go back home for christmas and I can’t wait to have a week or two off before I get back into the swing of things again in the new year.
