Why I decided to transition to a job in process development

Why you should use social media for personal branding

I did it! I have been having this idea of teaching women how to use social media for personal branding for 2 years and I finally managed to find a way to execute it. On Oct 21st, I will host my own and first online event SOCIAL MEDIA FOR BRANDING on zoom. 6 pm GMT, 6£. I am beyond excited about it and I can’t wait to share my knowledge with people who have been supporting my journey for years! Pictures in this article feature Deal Castle. They are my own as well as all unpopular opinions. Enjoy reading.

Should I start a PhD programme?

This is another long overdue blog article inspired by my followers who keep asking if it’s worth or wise to start a PhD programme. First of all, I want to say that I don’t have the answer for everyone. I don’t know your particular circumstances, your financial or personal situations, so don’t take my advice as gold. I can only speak based on my own experience and those of people I know.

How to get a job in industry – A personal perspective

Two weeks ago, I received a wonderful news. I passed my six month-probation and I have a permanent contract as reserach scientist in industry now. Considering the global pandemic and the economic recession, I feel like my permanent contract is worth 10 times more than it would have last year. Note: a while back I expressed my wish to talk about myself and my new life in Kent rather than PhD and my job. Unfortunately, with the pandemic, all activities outside working are non-extistent, so to keep my blog alive, I feel like I need to talk about professional things.

The life of your dream means taking the hardest decisions.

The last 6 months have been so intense and dense of events that it feels like it’s been 6 years already. Since my last blog article, a lot of things have changed. First of all, I am no longer in my 20s. On Jun the 8th, I turned 30 years old! I couldn’t do any celebration because we were still in lockdown but I didn’t mind that much. I celebrate my life every day so I don’t have to wait for a special day to do special things. I work and live in awesome locations by the beach and the quality of my life has improved so much that I don’t even feel like I need to go to Italy on holiday this summer.

Coming out from the pandemic with a new mindset

Usual appointment at the end of the month by making an update of the things that change and how I update my mindset every month. I didn’t write anything at the end of April because I didn’t feel like there was much to say considering the severity of the global pandemic. So, this is a long post, sit back, relax and enjoy!

Approaching the job market in the middle of a global pandemic

This is a personal post based on my personal views and experience. Please keep your judgement for yourself. Thanks

It’s always very difficult to say something when the outside world is cracking down, loads of people are dying, we live in isolation far from loved ones and friends. It’s a horrible situation which I decided to address with some sarcasm and silliness because I have spent so much time sorting out my mental health and depression that I won’t let corona destroy all my hard work and progress.

I thought that my PhD was tough then coronavirus arrived!

This is a personal post based on my personal views and experience. Please keep your judgement for yourself. Thanks

Since my last update at the end of February, my world and the entire world turned upside down. We are living a global pandemic that no one has ever seen before. Everyone is having their own struggle, there’s shortage of food at grocery stores, people are dying, others have been living in self-isolation for weeks, many are losing jobs.

How I manage my time effectly and productively

Last year, I decided to use my blog as a sort of diary to assess different points of my life, like professional career which was my PhD at the time, personal growth, self-care and social life. I started from January and I continued up until the end of my PhD. It was a very therapeutic thing because it made me reflect on my progress and how to improve myself every day and becoming a better person than the day before.
