Staying motivated

Happy February! Because it has been a couple of weeks since you have set your goals and intentions for 2020, I think it's time to check in with yourself and see how you're doing. It's not easy to stay motivated and to continue working towards your goals. It takes time and work to achieve anything. So in honour of us sticking to our goals this year, I've compiled a list of things to help you stay motivated and reach all your goals.

Looking for an internship

Finding an internship can be difficult. It’s often very competitive and not all companies readily accept interns. I had my first internship when I was 16. It was part of my school curriculum to do a 3-week internship. It is, unfortunately, the only one I’ve had since. As I’m sure you have too, I’ve applied to many companies since, but it was never successful. I have picked up a few things on that journey that I’d like to share with you, mostly things I learned from my mistakes. Whatever your situation is, whether you’re still in school or uni, internships are something many of us will have to go through at one point in our lives. So keep on reading to find out what to do when you're looking for an internship!

Working in retail

I’ve been working in retail for almost 2 years now and with the Christmas season being the busiest time of year, it felt appropriate to write this blog post. Retail, for, englobes any job where you have direct, face-to-face contact with customers. So whether you’re working in M&S, Asda, Tesco, McDonald’s, Costa, PetsAtHome, H&M, your local shop or anywhere you have to deal with customers, I hope you enjoy this post and remember, we’re all in this (Christmas season) together.
