I am getting to that stage in an undergrads life when they begin to question everything. Will I manage to get my dream job 3 months after graduation- with enough time for a holiday? Will I end up being stuck as a tea girl in the industry I love? Or will the evil journalists be write, is my degree not enough to get me a job?
I am 3 months away from my final hand in, 5 months from donning my cap and gown and parading across the stage to get my diploma. This is something that I have worked at getting for well over the three years I have been at university. My family, friends and loved ones have all become as invested in my university life as I have.
But what will I do next? Christmas was filled with this dreaded questions, my family, boyfriends family and everyone else are dying to know what the next stage of life will bring me, but the truth is I am as much in the dark as I am.
Since December I have been applying for jobs. In fact I became so absorbed in the process of applying I ended up applying for a job in America, without realizing. But even though I have sent off what feels like millions of applications I have not received any job offers.
So last week I decided to go to a talk the university where having about doing Masters courses. My lectures talk about the type of material that would be covered in the masters and how you can fund a masters course.
So I have decided that I am going to apply for a masters course, at my university, as well as applying for more jobs. So my plan for the future is basically I have no idea, and I am going to cover every base!
