Reflecting back over the last 3 months, I am very happy with my achievements every month.
However, Job searching can be very draining. I find writing these blog posts help me look back over the goals I have set myself. The good news is I got a part time job as a Research Assistant with Waterford Institute of Technology which I begin next Monday.
Saying that, I am very interested in the goals I didn’t achieve, I like to sit down and ask myself, “Why didn’t you follow through with this”?
You need to stay real, and I can honestly say it is because I turned my focus to something that in the long run has helped win me an award!
SLA’s LMD Divison (if you don’t know it check it out) have a career advancement award every year, so with the encouragement of my mentor, I set about to create my application.
I was thrilled to begin this as it brought together a lot of ideas I had floating around for some time now. Watch this space!
Also, one of my main aims this year is to do as much public speaking as I can, and I can safely say I love it, I spoke at a family wedding, I joined a writing class and stood up in front of a crowd of strangers and read my material.
From there my writing class got invited to two events in Waterford and again I spoke to a crowd of strangers and showed my material!
I have finished reading Chapter two of the Organised Mind, however, I do need to write up a blog post.
Data Protection and Privacy I had to sideline, however now the Law Society if Ireland started a MOOC, and I am currently looking at Module 1 so will reflect on this come the end of the week.
I shall be very busy this month, however, I do plan to keep this blog even more active as I will have lots to share with you all!
