Happy Deepavali guys! (It’s a Hindu festival of lights) What a great way to celebrate them with my new found friend, Lakshimi, a Hindu herself sitting beside me on the bus!
The retail fair at Leeds Beckett University was a great way for me to seek experience on everything I should know about getting a possible internship here and at the same time a fabulous way to work on my assignment.
The retail fair was a great chance for me to approach big retailers like Tesco, M&S, Morrisons, Next and Acadia just to name a few. I got great insights to what these potential employers are looking for in a CV (Crucial for my assignment), the sort of process they go through and finally the interview part. I managed to ask the sort of interview questions they would love to ask on applicants.
Now the sightseeing part! I caught up with my former course mate at Taylor’s University where we had lunch in a mall. (We went on the same flight together!) Michelle took me on a walk along the main streets of Leeds before heading back to the university for her class. While I had about an hour more before the bus leaves Leeds Beckett University, I took up my urban explorer role and went strolling around the universities side of Leeds.
The bus headed back to Lincoln at 3 and I was the last one on bus! Got a bit too carried away with my camera but hey! I was still early actually!
