I have unofficially completed my American Studies degree with the University of Leicester! By unofficial of course I mean I don’t yet have a grade, nor have I graduated – those are to come in early July. But right now I am basking in the lovely bank holiday sunshine (what a lovely surprise! In my last post I was so upset that it wasn’t going to be nice…I was proved wrong!) and enjoying a wave of (slight) euphoria at the fact that exams, essays and lectures are over.
But what made me think especially of writing a blog post on the matter is that right now I am writing a CV for future employment (wherever it may come from!) in anticipation of a career’s meeting I have tomorrow with the Careers Development Service in the Student’s Union. I am not sure really what to expect in this meeting past them looking over my CV for me, but I am hoping it helps me think more clearly about some careers I may want to focus my attention on (American Studies, we are told, is a transferable degree, so let’s hope that work’s to my advantage!). In any case I shall certainly report back on how helpful/unhelpful they might turn out to be! After all, I have no more revision or dissertation ‘excuses’ to stop me from updating this blog a little more regularly than I have been able to in recent months (oops!).
If you are personally interested in finding out more about the Careers Development Service have a click on the link. And if you have used their services before, or even have any hints that might help me write an EXCELLENT CV, then please do let me know in the comments!
