Uni is what you make of it

  Recently, I was working an Open Day as a Law School Student Ambassador and a parent asked me what kinds of networking opportunities there are available for law students. I rattled off my usual list: Law Society competitions and moot winners receive work experiences or offers to shadow lawyers/judges, barristers and solicitors come in […]

How to succeed in anything you do

  I love podcasts, and recently, I took a break from TED talks and How I Built This and I turned my attention to the Good Life Project podcast (which, I think, is pretty self-explanatory).   The episode that I listened to is entitled, ‘To Succeed at Anything, Do This’, so I was expecting some […]

What’s stopping me from pursuing what I want to do?

  This is a question that weighs me down, and has for a while. If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I’ve written many a blog post on my career path in trying to figure out what it is what I want to do. Over the summer, I’ve had chats with a few […]

How to prep for an application/interview

  Spending the last month applying for grad jobs has been the toughest, most time-consuming, but also illuminating process I’ve ever gone through. I’ve become so much more understanding of my strengths and weakness, and what kinds of jobs or company cultures align with my personality and strengths.   In researching a company and/or prepping […]

Insight on a Deloitte Careers Evening

  I wrote a while ago that I wasn’t going to write another blog post about a career change…   Well, friends, I did not lie! This blog post is career-related, but it is not about a career change! I repeat: I am not changing my career path again!!! (I’m really happy about it)   Just […]

My ever-changing career path, Pt. II

  It’s been a really windy road to figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life.   I realised that I hadn’t been honest with myself about my passions, because something had stopped me every time from admitting my one, true passion for the media and entertainment industry. It’s really […]

My ever-changing career path, Pt. I

  Over the course of this year since September, I’ve written not one, not two, but THREE blog posts on a change in career. I swear this is the last one, because I am so set on this career path and life plan. This is probably the most important blog post I’ve ever written.   […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. II

  In reading tons of job postings, I’ve come to realise that there are common threads in terms of what employers look for in their applicants, so I’ve listed some important points in my last blog post. I’m sure I haven’t uncovered every single common thread, and it differs industry to industry, but the jobs I […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. I

  I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I’ve been searching for a job this summer, and this is my first time job hunting ever. It’s harder than I thought and there’s an entire process to it that I had no idea existed! I thought my CV was pretty strong before I started filling […]

Yet another career change (and unleashing creativity)

  This week, I’ve had many a revelation. I’ve realised that as much as I enjoy studying law, I enjoy creating more, specifically in the form digital content. This means a career change might be in need, and this can only mean one thing: onwards with the journey!   My career path changes every few […]
