Hi there! Today I’ll be talking about the importance of not giving up. When things do get tough, such as trying to apply to Universities or Jobs whilst you’re at University, it can get tough. Especially when you may get rejections from places you thought would be good. However, it’s not the end of the world, or the end of the path of trying.
Before I got my IY placement I sent out a total of 17 CV’s, 15 covering letters and failed 10 employment tests. However, I did eventually find somewhere that was willing to take me on for a year just so I have the experience that regular University just wouldn’t give me.
It’s upsetting when you open your e-mails up and see the words “sorry, but on this occassion you have not gone through to the next stage” and yes, it ruins your morale for trying to get more applications sent off, but you will always eventually find somewhere that is willing to take you on for a go, just to see if you will be good enough for that company. All you have to do is keep trying and eventually you will get somewhere, and one day, a company will hire you and see just how good you actually are.
This can be said for everything however, just like J.K Rowling didn’t get her book published for ages, you may, like loads of people, not get a job instantly, but you can always try. Since, if you don’t try, then you never know.
Goodbye for now!
