#PlacementSeries: How to Make Your CV Stand Out

The dreaded CV. A mundane task for the best of us. How do we convey how amazing we are by not coming across as cocky? Impossible. How do we condense everything that we want to say onto one page or two? More importantly, how can we make a CV stand…

#PlacementSeries: When and Where to Start Looking

This started out as one blog post about securing a year-long placement, however I realised once I had started on my second point that I was 2,000 words deep. And hence, the single blog post turned into a series which will be full of valuable advice for those searching for…

#PlacementYear: Month Three

Month three. What an amazing 30 days its been. Only 21 of those being working days. I attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards, – can we just take a minute to let that sink in?! – a rooftop event with Marie Claire magazine, not one but two private screenings in…

Uber: A PR Nightmare

The countdown is on until Uber are no longer operating in London. In three days Uber users all over the city will be at a loss on how on earth they are to get home without paying a fortune on a black cab or by risking their lives on the night-bus.…

GQ Men of the Year Awards 2017: I WAS THERE

You’re probably wondering how on earth someone like me could have been invited to an event such as this and how in the world I managed to bag myself a ticket. I was wondering the same thing once I was told I was going. I still feel like the entire…

#PlacementYear: Month One

I think I’ve mentioned quite a lot about how fast time is moving by, and how I can’t believe that x amount of weeks have already passed, but oh my word, it’s already August. I promise this will be the last time I mention how fast time is going by……

What’s the Difference Between a Placement, an Internship and Work Experience?

These three terms can all get quite confusing. Am I on work experience? Is this an internship? Or is this a placement? Do they all mean the same thing? As I’ve had experience in all three, I thought I would break it down and explain the difference between these terms. When I…

#PlacementYear: My First Week

These past few months have been an absolute blur. I’ve been so busy and time has just went so fast, I can hardly keep up. The first week of my placement year is over, and what an ending to the first of fifty-two. I’ve had such a great week, although…

A Week Interning at The London Fashion Agency

As I moved to London last week, I had this entire week free to myself before I start my placement year with Coty on Monday. I couldn’t bear to sit around with so much free time, especially in a new city where I don’t know that many people. I knew I had…
