Training For A Career In Your Own Time

The idea of a career. It’s something so many people go in for during their youth, studying as hard as they can to make sure they get the degree of their dreams. And then you add another line to your resume and get turned away from jobs you’re told you’re not experienced enough for. It certainly doesn’t feel fair, and truth be told it isn’t!

So when it comes to carving out the career of your dreams, a lot of people like to turn towards freelancing; it’s liberating, you work your own hours and jobs. And you only pick up what you know you’re capable of. However, there’s many ways to boost up your skills (and your confidence) when you take your time training in what you want to do! And here’s a couple of great ways to do so.

Use an Apprenticeship

If freelancing is not quite the thing for you, and you still want to give it a go in a traditional place of work with the dreams you’ve always wanted to accomplish, see if there are any apprenticeship or traineeship programs available. This way you earn and study whilst on the job. There are always nationally recognised programs to apply to, so you don’t have to worry about the legitimacy.

Apprenticeships are also easier to get a hold of considering the amount of placements offered both on large and small scales, and even an internship won’t go amiss here. Just make sure you’re never doing any payment requiring work during one! You’ll get some much-needed experience, a great friend in the shape of an established employer. You will also get plenty of references to take you higher and higher.


Head Online

On the other hand, if the online world is your oyster, make sure you’re putting it to good use. It’s there for everyone to use after all, and when you’ve a wi-fi signal at your disposal, there’s so much you could do. For example, you can easily find an Online BBA Program to invest your time and effort in, and you’re going to come out of the other side with a degree that’s nationally recognised.

And you can usually complete these programs in your own time. So don’t underestimate the power an online learning system can give you. Or you could simply go online to find people just like you, to share advice and concerns. And to find the people who are searching for someone like you to fill a position they have open. It could be a simple commission or a full-time job, and it’s just waiting for you to apply to it! Look for sites that collect these openings together and apply to every ad you see; it could turn out well.

Training for a career is never something done lightly, but it’s something you can absolutely do. If you’re striving to get what you want at the end of the day, you’re doing a good job with the baby steps you feel like you’re taking.

Are you training for a new career? How are you finding it?

Products I Have Tried This Spring

As a blogger, I get the opportunity to try various products and talk about them on Fashion and Style Police. I had the lovely pleasure of trying these products this spring and I have been dying to tell you all about. Trying new products every now and again is fun. I look forward to my Post Man coming every day because I know there will be at least 1 blogger mail for me, which is so cool. I bet he wonders what I do for a living 😊

This year, I would like to try new beauty brands I have never tried before. I am particularly interested in beauty brands that focus on promoting vegan & cruelty-free make up products. I have my eye on quite a few with an eco-conscious, vegan makeup brand being at the top of my Wishlist. But for now, here are all the details of the products I have been busy with in the last few weeks.


Pro Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal Powder

This Pro Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal Powder is the way to get your teeth looking whiter. I have been using it for weeks now, along with my Oral B electric toothbrush and I can see a massive difference in the colour of my teeth already. It is now a few shades whiter and I am loving it,

This premium non-abrasive teeth whitening powder is made from finely ground coconut shell and Bentonite Clay. The formula helps to absorb the toxins and stains in the teeth whilst delivering essential minerals. It polishes the teeth, freshens the breath and is floride free.

Botonique Drink

Botonique is a unique non-alcoholic vegan-friendly drink, which can deliver the perfect, bubbly glass of fizz for those who love wine, but don’t want to, or can no longer, drink alcohol. The taste is very unique. It does not taste like a regular wine. It tasted more like a sparkling herbal drink.

This unique element means that Botonique is able to provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalising, detoxifying and hydrating benefits, resulting in all the pleasure of drinking without the negative side effects.

Rosa Faia Beautyfull Louise Underwire Bra and Pant Set

I really like this Rosa Faia Beautyfull Louise Underwire Bra and Pant set. The delicate and cheerful design is such a beauty. The pretty butterfly print and floral embroidery on semi sheer tulle is just a beauty.
