The life of a graduate. Apply for a dream job of mine and do not even get shortlisted for an interview. It is safe to say I am a little bit disappointed but hey, clearly not the job for me.
I was embarrassed to share this with you but this is my story of 2019 and the job of searching for a job (or, at least finding some direction) is going to be the dominant story of my year. This is my space on the internet and others may be in the same situation of applying for jobs after university or needing a career change. So, I thought to share my journey may be of interest and this might show how having a Masters degree may not help you get a job as much as you would think. And, hey, I might be able to impart some words of wisdom later down the line. You never know, I am sure stranger things have happened!
When I watched Mary Poppins Returns before Christmas, I thought to myself how handy it would be to have my own Mary Poppins slightly leading you down the right track in life, as, at the moment, I am slightly off roading ha ha. I did seek to read my yearly horoscope for 2019, in the hope it will shed some light. And I know as you read this, you are probably thinking, oh no she only bloody believes in her horoscope! But yes, yes I do or I at least hope in some way it is true(ish).
Anyway, on to the next application…
