What I’ve Learnt In My First Job Since University

It’s coming up to just over a year and a half since landing my first job after University. I was incredibly lucky to be accepted at my job around 6 weeks after my graduation, but I know even the job hunting stage can prove tricky for a lot of graduates. I feel that through my job I’ve learnt a heck of a lot in a relatively short space of time. I’m so grateful for the opportunities that my first job has brought me, the lessons I have been exposed to and the personal and professional growth I have undertaken in the last 18 months. So, I thought it might be mildly interesting or perhaps even helpful to share what I have learnt in my first job since university.

Making The Most of Your Final Year at University

Many of you will soon be returning back to university after a (hopefully) very relaxing Christmas break. The dread will soon kick in, the panic about graduate life will start and you will realise it’s all coming to an end sooner than you would like it to.  The period from January to the end of my degree went quicker than any other semester, and looking back, I could have done and seen and experienced so much more. So, I am writing this in the hope that it helps you, that it inspires you to go out and try new things, because it’s really never too late.
