The next chapter: Higher Education

Over the past few years I have had the privilege of working as a freelance journalist, covering issues which I care about - from miscarriages of justice to disability rights - for numerous publications. I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and have learned a great deal from researching social issues and interviewing fascinating people. Unfortunately, during the last few months I have been unable to write as much as I would have liked, owing to commitments related to a career transition.

Through my writing I have become increasingly interested in labour issues, including youth unemployment, graduate prospects, worker instability, the growth of freelancing and self-employment. This interest has led me to pursue a second career as a consultant, helping students in higher education to navigate the challenging and often confusing world of work as they plan their future careers.

I recently completed my training towards a professional guidance qualification and have now been offered an exciting opportunity to work at the University of Leeds careers centre, which I have accepted. This means that I will have less time to dedicate to journalism work. However, I fully intend to continue writing about the subjects that matter the most to me and hope that the experience of working within higher education will give me a valuable insight into many of the issues I have taken an interest in as a journalist.

Great article! Thanks for sharing this idea that if you have a professional qualification they why you are looking for jobs. Start your career as a freelancer and make yourself self-employment. https://typicalstudent.org/ could help for students in this matter.
