I’ve wanted to write this post for sooo long, and it is one I keep revisiting to add to and then changing my mind on whether to post – but finally… Here it is!
For those of you who don’t know I studied a 3 year degree in Multimedia Journalism, which opened many doors for me throughout the course of the time there and also afterwards. I met some amazing friends for life and wouldn’t change a second of it.
- Writing for the local newspaper including featured full page spreads
- Starting this blog and having the motivation to keep it going after uni
- Getting to do a job that I love straight upon leaving
- Giving me a unique set of skills I wouldn’t have been able to acquire elsewhere
- Meeting friends who I now couldn’t live without
They are the most important things my degree gave me.
Looking back, I didn’t think I would miss uni, but now that a lot of people are just starting and a lot of friends starting Masters degree’s, I kind of miss education!
It’s important not to dwell on the fact I miss education and the student life has sadly ended – as there has to come a time where adult life must begin.
In the last few weeks of uni, I managed to get a job in social media marketing which is what I went to Uni to get into and what I wanted to have as a career – so this was huge for me.
The company I work for has endless opportunities and I have met even more amazing people who will also be friends for life and I couldn’t be more grateful.
A lot of people perceive leaving uni and entering working life to be a mundane day to day lifeless life – but it really isn’t!
I would wholeheartedly encourage everyone to chase their dreams until they get them!
I haven’t drawn the line at education and would love to go on to study a masters or even a PGCE Teaching qualification to be able to teach English or Media.
Life can go in so many directions, it just takes the motivation to open the doors and take the opportunities that come your way by the horns.
I hate to try and picture myself in 5 years time, but the dream would be to work further into the marketing industry rather than solely on social media, or even be heading towards a teaching qualification – who knows!
Hope you have enjoyed!
