A few years ago I went through a life-changing event. Once I adjusted to my new way of life I was ready for a new experience. I made the decision to go to uni and study law. Four years later I graduated and was admitted as a lawyer and experienced something I had never really felt before: pride in my accomplishments.
As a mature age student I interacted with my younger classmates, formed some great friendships and just got on with it. The age differences did not occur to me, as we were all at uni for a common purpose. I always had a positive attitude towards finding a job because I honestly and sincerely believe that there is a place for everyone.
But after completing my studies I began to realise that a positive attitude is not enough. I needed to apply for jobs, network, and put myself out there. So I did, and I am.
