A friend of mine was already studying at Middlesex and highly recommended the university. I was also very interested in the Translation course on offer.
I chose my course because linguistics and translation have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I wanted to gain better insight into this area.
Practical translation and fx subtitling.

Prepare for hard work and make sure that you're well organised.
Obtaining a degree from abroad made me more attractive to employers in Poland.
I love people so decided to work in HR. What I enjoy most about the role is getting to meet and hire new people. The main downside is that working in HR requires a lot of patience and understanding.
After graduation I started working in a recruitment agency in the City as I had a background in sales. I then moved back to Poland when I was offered a position as an internal recruiter at the company I currently work for.
I believe that my current job offers great opportunities. I am lucky enough to have a role that offers me independence in a challenging industry and that allows me to learn something new on a daily basis. I'm also happy that my company is growing very fast, so I hope I will be able to stay here in the longer term and grow professionally with the organisation.
Hopefully only good things!
Don't give up and get frustrated if you're stuck in a horrible job or get fired. These things happen in life, so it's important to keep going, be yourself, continue to look for new opportunities and grab them when they arise.
Don't eat so much junk food and exercise more, but that applies to 27 year old me too.
