Sunday Summary: I Got The Job!

It’s safe to say the last couple of weeks have been very up in the air and i’ve had a lot going on, some ups and some downs but I am so happy to be able to finally put everything behind me and fully focus on my future, as i’ve been offered my dream job!

I mentioned briefly in a recent Sunday Summary post that a job opportunity had come up and I was really excited to see where this could lead me. After leaving uni, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do in terms of career and with that came a lot of unhappiness because I wasn’t doing what I enjoyed as I love being creative, so when this job opportunity came up, I literally jumped at it!

So after a nerve racking telephone interview, I was invited into the offices for an interview where I also had to present my portfolio and also a mini project they had set me. For this mini project, I was to create two trends and then design a capsule collection from the one, which could not have gone better and in fact the interview was so relaxed that it really allowed me to express how much I wanted the job!

Now I was expecting to not hear anything for a couple of days, but to my surprise I had a phone call the following day to say that they were offering me the job and I was so happy that I almost cried, but I managed to keep it together. My new job role is a design assistant for a overseas fashion brand, that will be launching in the UK next month and I am so excited! I start next Wednesday, so it’s a very quick change for me but one that I am welcoming with open arms and thankfully I don’t have to move or relocate.

Now you’re all probably wondering what this means in terms of my blog, and if i’m honest, nothing. My blog is staying and it will still be updated as regularly as it is now (maybe not everyday but I will still aim for at least 4-5 posts a week), as this little blog played a big part in me getting the job.

I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who wished me luck with my interview, as it definitely paid off and it means so much that you are all really supportive.
