Everything Happens For A Reason

Online Content Developer Graduate Job

I finished my blog post When Things Don’t Work Out by saying that I was sure something better was just around the corner.

I am glad to say that thinking positively and keeping going has worked out for me and I am so happy to write that I've got a job! I know it's cliche, but it really is my perfect job.

The job role is 'Creative Content Developer' and one thing they stressed is it's a job where I will be able to take full creative control, which is so exciting! I will be in charge of social media, blogging, vlogging and writing articles! What I produce on these mediums will aim to inspire young, disadvantaged children to take the route of higher education. Anyone who knows me would say that this is a perfect role for me.

I travelled up to Nottingham the night before my interview and stayed in my friend's flat. She had not long moved in and the flat already looked so good! (Tom and I are looking at getting a place there, too). We had a huge catch-up and then went up the pub for some food and a few drinks! Tom drove up and met us, I was glad to have him there to chat about any last minute nerves before the big day!

The morning of my interview I woke up early (I was scared of being late) and forced some breakfast down. I really hate eating early in the morning but I knew I needed brain power!

Tom walked me to the interview and we were so early because I'm always paranoid about being late for important meetings like that! I waited in the hallway and was met by one of the interviewers. That's when my interview began! It was three hours long because I had to do tasks, a presentation and a formal interview and I did, actually, enjoy it!

I left the interview feeling quite confident but also didn't get my hopes up! They said that they would ring me and let me know the next day whether I'd been successful...

Back at home that afternoon, I was relaxing watching daytime TV and the phone rang. It was them! They phoned me that day and told me I had the job! I've never felt such a relief after months of stress and uncertainty.

I start work in September, which I am so excited for. For now, though, Tom and I are enjoying August off before we head back to Nottingham! We are flat hunting Monday (hopefully successfully) and have a family trip to the Norfolk coast to look forward to!

I can't wait to begin and I'm sure it will live up to my expectations!



  1. That's great Olivia and congratulations!
    It is true, everything happens for a reason and we must follow our gut instinct or leading because that is the right way for us...

  2. Thank you Auntie Kathryn! Yes, definitely. It's the best way to view things and important that when things don't go our way we shouldn't let it get us down! :) x
