This is a random blog but I thought I’d jot my thoughts down. When I finish university, I will be let loose into the world! Number one: this is a great opportunity to pursue different creativities. Number two: I’m just unsure on what opportunity will be for ‘me’.

I’ve got several ideas that I’m considering. These ideas are teaching, magazine editing (trying to work my way up in the magazine world!), administration, or any jobs that allow me to continue writing. I’m also interested in marketing as I have an active mind, and like to exert my creative side. So many choices, so many different directions. It’s both exciting and scary at the same time. After studying English at university for three years, I feel like I’m ready for the next step. It’s just deciding which step to take.

I’d appreciate any advice from anyone who teaches, or has been in my position after graduating (or even without graduating). It would be interesting to see how you got to where you are right now!

I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Try get in as much experience as you can before you leave universtiy, I was in a very similar situation to you with very similar goals and it’s something I became aware I was lacking very quickly


    1. I only have experience in retail (a couple of years). I’ve almost finished my lectures so it’s time to venture into the world and search around! I’ll have to finish my final assignments and exams in the meantime. What did you study, if you don’t mind me asking?


  2. I studied English Language, I delved a fair amount into Literature and Creative Writing, but my main focus was linguistics. However, my interests all lie in the creative world so I definitely know what you’re going through. The graduate environment is so volatile at the moment, not just because of the political state of Britain but also the structure of employment. Lot’s of older people just aren’t moving out of lower end positions, because the creative industries have change so much they can’t keep up. Which means there are less positions for people like us.
    This may not necessarily ring true for you, as it also has a fair amount to do with where you live, but experience (voluntary or paid) is so important.

    Sorry for the long message and the late reply, and I hope you’re assignments and exams went well (I’m sure you smashed them).
