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! πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Stay hungry, stay foolish!!

Best,

Carlotta!

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.

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 »
