Graduated and unemployed
The process of securing your first graduate role can seem like an unfair task to complete when you’ve just completed 3 years of mission impossible (congratulations BTW!). Especially when paired with a global pandemic. Oh, and a recession. All at the same damn time. However, there’s no need to panic, as there are still plenty of recruiters and employers looking for someone just like you.
Starting a new business with NO money

How to Avoid Freelancing For Free?
Step #1. Keep a Written Record I have been through those times when my hard work was not measured by money. I was doing work for free. Those times included free and paid internships. One thing is common in both internships, you work but no money. In free internships, you don’t get paid at all […]
