The sun has been shining so much on Luxembourg and boy does it feel good! I've just finished the first week of my internship in social media for a tourist office and I cannot wait to get into my second week. I finished uni incredibly early so I knew I wanted to secure an internship for at least a month. I was fortunate enough to do a work placement year as a part of my course but gaining professional experience is ever more important these days when having a bachelor's degree is the norm and having a master's is not uncommon.
Quite a few people manage to set up internships through connections they already. It's certainly not something to be ashamed of! If you that someone do that something who could likely help you get your foot through the door then don't hesitate to ask them to set up an interview or an introduction of some sort. One of the things I have learnt, though, is when I don't have that connection I need to go after and build it myself and I cannot be afraid of that especially if I want to get into an industry that doesn't entirely relate to my BSc Sociology degree in terms of practical knowledge and understanding.
It has been only one week but I have already learnt so much from my supervisor and it has been great learning about how social media is used in a more professional context rather than for blogging where personal branding is more at stake than a whole company's.
With that being said, it still baffles me how I was able to jump over hurdles to land this internship and yet I still cannot seem to bring myself out of my monochrome madness. I just love an all black outfit way too much! Here, I'm wearing my all-time favourite jeggings from River Island, the "Molly" style, along with my long blazer from New Look. My sandals and tote bag are from H&M, and my sunglasses are ones that I picked up in a random Japanese store quite a few summers ago. I do love a good pair of tortoise shell sunnies but Kristiana got my these (here on instagram) black, slightly cat-eye, Quay Australia ones for my birthday and I have totally been loving them since.
