Now What!?

On the 3rd July 2013, I officially graduated from university with a bachelors degree in mathematics, yay!  I guess the hard bit is over, but is it?


Now I just have the wonderful task of trying to find a full time job!  Currently I still have my weekend position which will keep me going for the time being and is certainly better than just being unemployed.  I don't even know what sort of jobs I am looking for to be honest, I don't know anything about finance which is what a lot of maths based roles tend to be, or computer programming ones which I'm no good at either!

I also have my fashion make up HNC now but I swear (cruelty free...) make up counter jobs are harder to find than maths-y ones!!  Ideally I would prefer to get out of retail as I've been in that side of things for the past 4 years but as I have a lot of experience it would always be good to start out there.  Even if it just gave me something to do while looking for another job.

If I don't have anything by the end of August I am going to volunteer with Project Scotland who are an organisation to try and get young people employment experience, you do 30 days and they give you money towards your travel.  The ones I was offered are helping out at a petting farm with horses, donkeys and small animals; and a more business/office type of job which gives you lots of training - I haven't chosen one yet!

I thought I would just give you a little update about my life at the moment - if you have any job role suggestions for me PLEASE do let me know!  I need other keywords to type into my job searches!

  3. I graduated on the 4th :) I've managed to find a part time job, but I really need to find a full time one in my actual area of interest, but they're all unpaid internships which I can't afford to do, especially as most mean packing up and moving to london :( good luck!!
