“Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference” – Arie Pencovici
I finally have my Public Relations Management Degree and even though it was my second graduation ceremony, it still was a momentous achievement to relive. After receiving my Diploma from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), my friends all opted to do their BTech full-time while I ended up doing mine part-time over two years to get as much work experience in my field. However, the first four months were really tough. I was freelancing for a company where I completed my internship programme. Unfortunately, they were unable to keep me on permanently and during that time, I sent my CV to over 70 companies with only five responses to come for an interview but received no call back thereafter.
