My name is Ellie and I’ve just graduated from University after 4 years of hard graft! I’m one of many who have now hit the realisation having finally completed my degree that I now face the daunting challenge of starting my career within the events and entertainment industry. So I have decided to write my first blog about my journey from student bubble to the buzz of live events. This week I am completing an internship at MishMash Management in London, which is my first glimpse into the real world. I will learn the do’s and don’ts that I’m sure many people like me all make when they first realise how hard it is to go from university to working life. I think having a job, meeting new people and achieving targets does a lot for your own personal drive and confidence. Earning your own money and being independent is such a great freedom especially for women! However, after four years studying a Hospitality degree at the University of Portsmouth at first I found myself unsure and a little confused as to where to take my next steps in my career, however I can excitedly admit that I am ready to jump out of the bookcase and into the fast pace world of events and entertainment.
