What happened after graduation?

Hi there everyone..!

It has been a while since the last time I wrote something. I actually thought that I would have had nothing else to say, however, I thought it would have been interesting writing something more about what happened after my graduation last June.

Right after graduation I actually flew to NYC for an amazing internship with a production company. During my time in NYC I met so many great people and learnt so much about one of my favourite industries (films & motion pictures) and had the time to read more about it during my commuting time. Useless to say, it was absolutely unforgettable and I am just so grateful for such an amazing opportunity 🙂

Graduation Day!

And so the time has finally come! Yesterday morning I graduated top of my class and received the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) Award! Such wonderful moments that I surely will never forget! My family and friends have been so supportive from the very first day of University and it was an emotional moment for all of us getting together the ceremony! Two schools graduated yesterday, but the ceremonies are still on for other departments. As for my day, after the ceremony in Usher Hall (gorgeous, by the way!) we all moved to Craiglockhart for a gathering moment with all the guests and lecturers. We then left and headed to a restaurant for a meal with all my guests, which was the perfect ending of my day. I am truly grateful for everyone who helped me achieve what I achieved, and for all the people who supported me throughout my time at Edinburgh Napier.

So, the question is…what’s next? Well, I’m gonna leave Edinburgh in a few days for an adventure in New York and then fly directly from there to Sweden for my master in Lund. And then, after that, hopefully I’ll land the job that I’m really longing for which is in film entertainment, and specifically in the movie trailers/promotion field.

As for you, incoming and current Edinburgh Napier students, good luck with your experience and with your future! As for soon-to-be graduates, here’s a selection of some good articles on ‘What to do after graduation’..hope you’ll enjoy them! 🙂

I won’t be writing blog posts anymore, or at least not as regularly as I used to because I need to focus on all the new things that are coming up soon! However, I’ll be receiving notifications anyways and I’ll be happy to reply to your enquiries if you contact me 🙂

Stay hungry, stay foolish!!

Best,

Carlotta!

-1 week to Graduation: What’s next?

One week to go. ONE WEEK TO GO! This does not even sound real! My friends and family are gonna join me from Italy, Scotland and US and I truly can’t believe this moment is almost here. Everything is ready: my gown, photography and evening buffet for my guests. I feel excited just thinking about next week, but at the same time I have that bittersweet feeling that makes me realise that I’m gonna have to leave both Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier. This makes me so sad I can’t even explain! However, I’m sure I’ll always keep in touch through the Alumni community, which kind of makes me feel better 🙂

As many of you are (or will be) in my same situation very soon, I reckon you are going through my same concerns: Read the rest of this entry »

Best tours for students: in Edinburgh and around Scotland

It can be very frustrating feeling like travelling and not being able to afford it. However, there are many free tours out there. It is important to be aware that many tours that are advertised as ‘free’ actually mean that at the end you’re gonna be asked to leave a donation. So technically you could just leave and not pay, however it is not nice custom to do so…so make sure you’ve got at least a fiver (or whatever you think the tour was worth it) not to be surprised at the end!

As you may want to visit specific places around Scotland e.g.

10 steps for Edinburgh Napier students on how to land an internship

internship What would it be your first move in trying to find an internship? What would you Google, and what wouldn’t you?

In my previous blog post I mentioned that Edinburgh Napier offers the chance to get an internship as part of the degree only to some courses (as an elective module), so either if you won’t choose that as a module or if you don’t have such chance within your programme you should start preparing to approach companies to ask for work experience. So where to start? This is my top 10 list of things to do while looking for an internship, so here we go: Read the rest of this entry »

Today I had my very last group presentation at university, so I am done with all the assignments and classes at Edinburgh Napier. It’s such a bittersweet feeling, but I can’t stop smiling. Today’s assigment as a 100% group project that involved the development and creation of a fruit juice brand as well as supporting marketing tools like its website, social media and SEO. It has been a very busy project Read the rest of this entry »

Looking for (private) accommodation in Edinburgh?

homeIf you have been accepted by Edinburgh Napier, it’s probably time to start thinking about accommodation! Either if you want to apply to the student halls or look for private accommodations, I suggest to start planning your budget and preferred areas.

This link takes you directly to Edinburgh Napier’s accommodation page, if you would like to check it out.

I’ve never personally experienced Edinburgh Napier students accommodations, but I’ve had many friends living there. Locations are very good, though hygiene may be challenging at times based on your flatmates. In students accommodation you’re gonna have your own room, which is usually very nice and cute, and your own key to the room. You’re gonna be sharing kitchen and bathroom and the flat itself is reasonably Read the rest of this entry »
