So you’ve sent off your CV or your application, and the company has offered you an interview. You want that job right? You’re half way there!
YOLO – You Only Live Once has been used an excuse to do silly things and it’s usually taken as the worst interpretation of the Latin Carpe Diem. However, it’s still true and valuable when you think about what you’re going to do to support yourself for the rest of your life.
You learn a lot from going to university. Some people learn how to cook, clean, make friends, get up early and study, but for me I learnt a few lessons for life. So, here at the 4 lessons I learnt at University.
Throughout University, it goes without saying that you will be VERY busy.
Despite the jokes most people of a slightly older generation make about living the ‘easy life’ as a student, realistically, it is a really busy time for students.
It can be easy to forget that there is a whole other world out there whilst you live at University. You live in this little bubble of your friends, your social life, your workload, and the odd bit of work and lectures as well!
I’m sure many of you have got Facebook pages, a Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google+ account as well as being active on Tumblr and Pinterest. But I’m not sure if you know that everything we do online is in the public domain, which means: everyone and anyone can search for you online.
So you’ve graduated and now you want to start your career. We all know how that works – you start off on a high, saying you’re going to dust off your CV, update your cover letter, apply for all the jobs.
Now that my brain has finally realised that this was the end of a four-year-long journey, it’s time to start facing the differences between student life and after-the-end-of-uni life.
