Finding Graduate Jobs Doesn’t Have To Be Scary

I thought I’d write this piece to voice my opinon and help everyone out there in a similiar situation to me. Being a finalist at university it is time for me to find a grad job. When a lot people hear the words ‘grad jobs’ they freak out. And why shouldn’t they? Being in the comforts of education your whole life it is scary to venture out alone into the big wide world. But it doesn’t have to be frightening. For me, I’m excited. Excited at all the possible opportunities out there. I could be anything, work anywhere in the world, meet so many different people. All the opportunities out there for graduates are phenomenal. It’s just about finding something that would suit you personally.

Through observation, many people have taken different approaches to this, whether it be to put it off, block it from your mind and not attend any careers events or to presume there aren’t any jobs for them or their subject so don’t bother looking. These approaches may work for some people but definitely won’t work long term. It can be stressful when people are around you saying ‘I have applied to five how many have you applied to?!?!’ But everyone goes at their own pace and is interested in different things – an engineering student won’t necessarily want the same things as a fashion student for instance.

My advice to you guys (especially the worriers of the world) would be to research. Start researching companies and from there develop a plan of where you want to apply and work through them systematically. Look at it as a vast amount of opportunities waiting to be taken. Perspective is everything.

♥ Picture of the Day ♥ – This selfie makes me laugh, with my friends from my course on one of our first get togethers in final year.

♥ Went to lectures on Modernisms which was on Joesph Conrad and Narratives of American Sport where we were looking at Moneyball (both the film and book – I’d recommend both buuuuut the film has Brad Pitt in soo it’s up to you on that one…). Tuesdays are so packed, five hours of lectures and seminars back to back.

♥ Warm drinks (my best friend and I have best friend mugs – cool I know).

♥ Feels like winter when it’s horrible outside and I’m reading inside with my fairy lights on making my room so cosy.

♥ Onesie, fluffy socks and Tomato Soup timeee. The weather at the moment is so grim. It’s official I have the scarf out. I am determined that it is not cold enough for my winter coat yet but may cave soon as it’s so pretty (see below).

10 Times Kylie Jenner’s Wardobe Was On Point

It is no secret that Kylie Jenner’s fashion sense is currently one of the most talked about. It seems everyone wants to know where to get her look from. At the young age of seventeen her style is influential to many, being both edgy and stylish. Her wardrobe and style is quite different to her other sisters’. She fashioned blue dip dye for her elder sister Kym’s wedding. It definitely makes her unique. Here are a few outfit combinations I love.

I love how edgy meets girly with her white dress/black leather jacket combo, finished off with a cute top knot.

This look is so elegant and sophisticated. The gold shoes really match the whole outfit giving it more of a glam look.

This is the perfect yet practical festival look.

What I love about this outfit is the brown belt which ties the outfit together giving shape to the loose materials.

This is a day or night look but the chunky black bag turns it more into day attire. The colours work really well with each other.

Even though it’s a girly outfit, Kylie makes the outfit her own edgy style by teaming it with the black leather military boots.

This is so simplistic yet made sexy with the slit in the skirt, perfect for red carpet or high profile events/appearences.

Similiar to the outfit above this is simplistic yet sexy.

These ripped shorts combined with the smart blazer gives the outfit an edgy/ smart-casual feel.

I love how she combines the boyfriend jeans with the stripy crop top and top knot – perfect for everyday casual wear.
