Stick to what you know and keep an open mind when applying for posts
I still remember the frustration of trying to get my first job in law. Like many graduates, I had no contacts, no relevant experience – and my CV was average at best.
I started by applying to work as a paralegal. My mum, a carer for my family, tried to help, but I had to learn how to write job applications myself. I suffered my fair share of rejections, but after getting my first role, I managed to secure a training contract.
