How to use your uni work to land your dream job

How to use your uni work to land your dream job

Ever felt like your uni work had no real purpose other than achieving the grades for your degree?

What if I told you you could use your degree work to kick start your career and land your dream job?

I used my final project to develop a business idea which landed me PAID freelance work straight out of uni! 🎉

Want to learn how I did it? 

Here are a few hacks:

🎉 SHARE your process - don’t wait until you have your finished product, share behind the scenes  the good bits and the not so good bits. Don’t be afraid to show what you have learnt on the way.


This helps you build an audience who are invested in your journey, they will feel part of your project and will be interested in getting involved and connecting with your people that might be able to help you.


Platforms such as LinkedIn can be a game changer when it comes to building your network. The majority of the opportunities I have had on my career journey have come through recommendations, mutual connections and word of mouth. 

Reach out to those who have been where you are now and see if they can give you any advice/ feedback on your work.

They will often be more than happy to help!

🎉 BUILD the foundations of your personal brand 

Don’t know where to start with building you personal brand? Start sharing the story behind your uni work and why you were inspired to create it. 

Your personal brand is all about sharing your personality, you creative work and your career journey so far. No matter whether you are just starting out or have been building your career for years, you will have some exciting lessons and experiences to share that people want to hear about.
