As part of the graduate series on my blog, I interviewed a friend about her recent role in the creative industry (TV). We chatted jobs, life after university, misconceptions and feminism. We also chatted about the rest of our lives and realising things aren’t always, maybe never, the way they are painted. Don’t forget to read previous graduate profile posts if you’ve missed out!
Successful Rights Assistant at Penguin Random House and recent graduate Eishar, spoke to me about her experience of finding her way onto the career ladder. Talking about her life, her passion for Publishing and ambition to move forward.
Eishar sincerely and honestly contributed to the first Graduate Profile series rebooted, now with a twist.
This series will be about graduates from a BAME background launching themselves onto career ladder – focusing on the struggles and successes of making themselves known. First in line is, an interview with Eishar.
I have finally done it, my employment status is no longer ‘unemployed graduate, doing voluntary roles,’ it has been updated to: digital editorial assistant. I filled out application 1,004, got an interview and the rest is history. I make it sound easy… it was not. But I have published many posts on graduates looking for jobs. This post marks a new wave of posts coming your way: the graduate experience in the workplace.
