Networking is important. Do not give up too soon, it may take some time but don’t worry, it is not impossible to find something during this pandemic. Life goes on.

I definitely use many of the skills I acquired during my studies. At my current work, I most often make use of academic writing, communication and European institutions skills.

The beauty about the International Relations Master’s degree at UG is that it prepares students well for a varied career in a range of industries and job functions. My own example is a case in point.
