After sharing my love for the Career Crisis cards the other week, I visited The School of Life for a special workshop on overcoming procrastination. Walking from the station on the evening of the class I couldn’t help but wonder if anyone would turn up – they’d all be too busy procrastinating, right? Oh the irony! But actually it was a full house, all ready to kick procrastination where it hurts… or try anyway. I’ve read a...

Not all those who wander are lost. It’s quite a famous saying, but I’ll admit that I didn’t know where it came from until I just googled it. If like me you didn’t know; it’s from a poem by J.R.R.Tolkien – that guy that wrote Lord of The Rings. You must’ve known that!? 🙂 Even though I often say I feel a bit lost with my career, there’s always still a little voice of positivity...

I’ve been putting off writing this post for almost 3 weeks now, but I felt like I couldn’t really post anything else until I got this one out of the way.

Winning the Young Persons Blog Award at the UKBA in April was an amazing experience – I met some lovely bloggers and gained confidence with my blog. After leaving University I was worried that my blog would either turn into a series of depressed  posts about unemployment or finish altogether. I’m really glad that I didn’t give up and turned my experience into posts which will hopefully help/support other graduates. I wasn’t sure about asking you guys to...

So you’ve applied for an internship/job and have been offered an interview? Well done! Some studios receive 100s of applications for internships and jobs so to get shortlisted is an achievement in itself. Now you need to impress and persuade them that you’re the right person for the job. To help you out I’ve compiled a few tips (who, what, where, when, why and how) that I have picked up from tutors, interview feedback and fellow...

After attending the private view of this year’s University of Lincoln degree show (Show Fourteen), I was reminded about the situation that I found myself in this time last year. I spoke to a few students about what happened after I graduated and I think I surprised them: I didn’t know if I wanted to be a Graphic Designer anymore. Did I really want to sit at a desk 9-5 everyday? I’ve got lots of...
