A year after University.. what I've been up to..

I can't believe it's already been a year since I was at university. A year can go so quick and so much can happen within that time. If you've been following my blog for a while you would've seen that I shared my experience whilst at university, from my first year to my third. It only feels right to share what I've been up to a year on from then. 

So my previous post kinda touches on what I've done in the last year. Just to back track a little.. I studied Law and the plan was to work for one year to get work experience in Law firms and then do my LPC (Legal Practice Course). The only reason why I had this plan and was because it was the only plan that made sense. You go to uni to study Law, so now you're going to start building your career in that, right? 

Deep down I always knew Law wasn't a career I wanted to get into but felt like I had to for so many reasons. Don't get me wrong, I liked the course and found it so interesting but it was never my passion, I was going to give it a go any way but found myself in a totally different industry.

After applying for a temporary position as Recruitment Resourcer for Reed, I found myself in an industry I never once even considered.. Sales! I've always thought it takes a certain type of person to get into Sales, you've got to have this ruthlessness about you but that's not the case at all. There are a lot of misconceptions about Recruitment Consultants but anyway, we won't get into that. 

After working as a Recruitment Resourcer for 8 months, I was finally promoted to a Consultant. Since working at Reed I've put myself completely out of my comfort zone and it's been so challenging at times having to deal with anxiety on a daily basis and over come certain obstacles but it's been rewarding. I genuinely enjoy what I do, Recruitment has it's highs and lows but what job doesn't? I'm still learning a lot and still want to continue challenging myself, it's exciting to see where this could all take me. 

Since going to into Recruitment I've realized that sometimes life takes a turn. You have this plan of what you're next steps in life are going to be but before you know it, you're going down a completely different path. Since this realization, it's made it very difficult for me to plan anything going forward.. I feel like I'm just going with the flow and I really don't think that's a bad thing.

Overall this last year has been quite the rollercoaster. I'm in a good job, I still get to blog, I've had some lows but I'm working towards doing more of what makes me happy and just living my best life.. as they say.
