Hi, I'm Melissa. I founded The Blue Graduate during lockdown 2020, as a place to provide fellow graduates and students with advice and guidance on how to build their careers and maintain their wellbeing to beat the post-uni 'blues'. I am by no means an employability or wellbeing expert, but I do have lots of experience with both - which I want to share with you in hope that it will help some of you who are struggling to navigate through life after university.
I graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 2018 with an upper second class honours in BA Marketing and Advertising Management. Since then, I have attended plenty of interviews, overcome mental ill health and started to build my marketing career as a marketing assistant.
I have lots of plans for The Blue Graduate and I am hoping to find other graduates who want to share their experience of life and how they have coped with the post-uni blues. If you are interested in contributing to a blog post, please contact me.
