Right now I am quite literally the happiest girl in the world! After a couple of months of job hunting, I have finally landed myself a 10 week paid work placement at KMS Components as a marketing assistant, in Cardiff – with the chance of extending my contract at the end! Yes, that’s right, my dreams finally came true, and I am moving back to my beloved city thanks to GO Wales.
After a fairly short interview at KMS Components on Monday, I was pleasantly surprised at how interested they were in me, and what I could bring to the position. I was asked to write a short marketing copy, as a test of my writing capabilities. I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t the easiest thing I’ve ever written; although I think maybe I made it out to be a lot harder in my head than it actually was. Nevertheless, I managed to put something together. It couldn’t have been that bad, as the next day I received a phone call from the company telling me they would like to offer me the position! Obviously, I jumped at the chance, and I start on Monday!
As exciting as this all is, I probably didn’t think this through too well. I may need somewhere to live! Currently staying with a friend, but now the job hunt is over, I’m now flat hunting. I’ve found a strong possibility, so fingers crossed, I’ll move into my new flat in a couple of weeks.
I haven’t stopped grinning since yesterday, although I will miss my parents, friends and obviously my dogs. I feel as though I’ve just come back home and now I’m leaving all over again.
Exciting and challenging prospects lie ahead for me, but I know I’m definitely ready to make it on my own in “The real world”!
