What’s my story?
My story is just like yours. In 2012 I found myself graduating from University College London with a BA in German and Italian, and no idea of where to go next. I didn’t want to go into law, or teaching, and I certainly didn’t see myself as a call centre agent. I was able to speak 4 languages fluently, quote from Dante’s Inferno, and write an award winning comparative literature essay. I felt like I had a thousand options, and none at the same time.
The big question was; how could I apply what I learnt at university, and enjoy my career?
It seems that this question remains unanswered, and not just for language students, but globally. I found that my colleagues knew exactly what they wanted, and they were recruited weeks after graduation. I stumbled across an MA, and got myself more qualifications only to find myself exactly where I started, lost.
After a year of finding myself, working low paying jobs around Italy, Vienna and the UK, I moved back home to Belgrade – jobless. With more luck than anything I found a career where I could be creative, and process driven at the same time. I can work from the comfort of my home, or across the world in Australia. I get to contribute to an inclusive, people centric company, use my languages, and travel the world.
