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.

When someone asked me the other day if I had a post up with tips for securing an internship, I knew immediately that it would be something good to get written up. These days – internships seem to be a direct route into a number of jobs. I was extremely lucky when it came to the whole application process and things just moved overall quite smoothly from studying, to one day finding myself in a firm. But I can’t say there’s anything particular I did to warrant that smoothness and in fact I think a lot of it was purely down to luck – having the nice interviewers, being in the right places at the right time, having a nice team on my internship, etc… Most of these tips below are actually things I’ve realised in hindsight after watching the process from the other side. I get a number of LinkedIn messages every week asking for my tips on getting an placement – so hopefully these can help a lot of you that may be seeking an internship or a job!
