I entered a blog under the theme of ‘networking’ for the 2015 London NatureJobs Career Expo journalism competition and I was selected as one of 5 runners up.
The topic of networking appealed to me as it has been something that I have previously struggled with. Having overcome this myself I wanted to pass on how I got to grips with talking to other people and maintaining connections – and get across that it can actually be quite fun!
The 5 winners of the competition became journalists for a day at the annual NatureJobs Career Expo in London. I’m hoping to go to this event in 2016 in preparation for my final year as a PhD student to give me ideas and advice on what to do and where to go next.
