So in my many lectures of how to get into the industry, the main two points of advice that keep appearing are tea and networking.
Now neither of these are my strong point. I am allergic to tea and when put on the spot, I am chronically shy!! However, I feel there is a slight solution!! Hooray! My many years of working in cafes has provided me with the experience of making the perfect tea. Even if I can’t drink it I can impress the powers that be right?! Although I am still working on the problem of being shy, just imagining everybody in underwear seems to be a good piece of advice!
I am now in my 3rd year of university, with only one full term left until being tossed out into the big wide world. I’m trying to follow all possible routes that tutor’s are advising to widen my experience and my online profile. There never seems to be enough hours in the day to fit everything in! Apart from the many hours spent scrolling through Facebook and Instagram any second I find myself drifting slowly into boredom! So, why not create a blog – it’s online, about me and hopefully getting myself noticed!
So take a follow, visit regularly and hopefully you’ll see or hear me on the BBC one day! 😉
After all, there’s nothing like dreaming big, even if all it ever does is stay a dream eh? 🙂
