When I started working full-time last September, all I had in my mind is that I “wasn’t an intern anymore”, which I thought would mean I could take any mental pressures out of my role; I felt that, essentially, it would be a lot easier than my internship. Little did I know there would be a ton of other different (and unexpected) hurdles waiting for me in the office. I think, for me, adjusting to working full-time in the corporate world wasn’t easy (especially working in such a high-intensity job), but along the way I’ve learned a lot and I actually developed a lot as well, and this is all directly due to my job. With exams soon out of a way – I know many of you will soon be going into your own full-time grad jobs. So, don’t be like me and come with assumptions already made – keep your mind open and if anything, be ready to walk away from the first few months as a different person. To help you out and give you a heads up – I’ve listed the five things I think you’ll need to adjust to when you start working full time.
Long time no outfit post! Before we get into the blog, I wanted to quickly share an exciting event coming up in two weeks which I think could be of interest to a lot of you. Sharmmaine from Purpose Meets Class will be holding the ‘PMC Luncheon’ of April 29th in Seven Sisters. The event is all about celebrating women – it’ll include networking, learning all things branding as creatives and even some workshops for all the behind the scenes bits that are rarely spoken about. A lot of inspiring ladies will be speaking about growing your social media accounts, to managing your YouTube accounts, tech for your blog and more. I will be speaking in a short segment titled ‘Show Me The Money’, which is going to be all about myself (my blog, my full-time job), making money form blogging, managing your personal finances and a few little nuggets on how you can start looking at easy ways to make more money out of the money you already have. You can grab your tickets over a this link!
