Sadly, we have come to the end of the year, and even my graduation ceremony in July seems a distant memory!
Many of us new graduates have never been so free since finishing school! Many will have gone away for holiday – I went to France with some friends – whilst many others will be throwing parties around the city. It is a moment to be savoured, perhaps, as many prepare to leave Bristol for the next stage of their life (London, for many).
As for me, I haven’t found myself a graduate job and my plans remain up in the air. I am considering whether or not to accept an offer to study Economics at the University of Warwick, and also looking for short-term work experience to fill my time during the summer. Economics would add technical skills to my credentials and benefit me in many contexts in business and beyond, but I may study law at graduate level instead (in order to train to become a solicitor). It all depends on where I want to be, but unfortunately that remains unclear! Languages degrees are very versatile and linguists can fit in with multiple professional environments. It is great that there is so much that I could do, but slightly irritating that I have so much choice! This is why I’m looking for short-term work experience… internships are a great way to understand how you feel about a particular profession/sector, and I am hoping that this search will help me decide on the professional route that I wish to take in the future.
But that’s all from me for now. Thank you all so much for reading, it’s been a really fun year. I’m sad to say that this is my last update with my present status!
Farewell and good luck
